Re: Lumbar Facet Joint Replacement
If you don't mind being a guinea pig, then facet replacement surgery might be for you! I don't know if it has widespread approval yet. If it isn't still in the experimental stage, it isn't far out from that point. With all the problems you appear to have with degeneration of the facets, it would certainly be worth looking into.
I would imagine you would have to seek out a spine surgeon with some experience with this surgery. Very few would have it at this point.
