Neuro Surgeon or Orthapedic?

I see many people see spine doctors as welll as Neuro surg. I have a consult with a Neuro surgeon for my cervical spine. I am wondering which is best for this kind of treatment?
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Re: Neuro Surgeon or Orthapedic?

This is probably the biggest question people disagree about on this forum. I, personally used a orthopedic spine specialist for my ACDF. I didnt have alot of neurological symptoms. Mine was more pain related. I think if you do a search on this forum, you will find LOTS of opinions on this question.

Re: Neuro Surgeon or Orthapedic?

yes I agree this is a very popular topic...

I think it is really a doctor vs. doctor question more so than a neuro vs. ortho question. Who do you feel most comfortable with, how long have they been doing the procedure, etc..

However, if your condition is more nerve related, I think the majority of posters here say that a neuro might be the better route...

I saw both, and ended up using an ortho- primarily b/c of the type of procedure I chose. Endoscopic non-fusion ACD.

good luck
