Re: how dangerous is cervical disc surgery
From the research I have seen, It is a very common procedure and has a 95-98% success rate... Now having said that, I would find the very best, most highly skilled, highly rated Dr.. (ortho or neruo..which ever you decide is best for you), that I could (did) to work so close to my spinal cord. There are variations of disc surgery with bone gratfing and plating as well as a single level disc replacement. Depending on what you need, I would search for the right Dr for me. 50% is Dr skill, the other 50% is patient compliance with restrictions.... If you shift the bones, they stay shifted...
