Re: C1 o ring small pinching spinal cord
I'd recommend Hyun Bae in Santa Monica. Did my 3-level laminoplasty last year. Was recommended to me as a very good surgeon and extremely honest. Practices at Cedars Sinai and Saint Johns.
I'd hate to have a C1-C2 fusion, as - I'm told - that level is responsible for about half of range-of-motion. Perhaps a posterior decompressive surgery would work as well or better?
