surgery should and usually is the absolute last resort w-tmd treatment. ONly 3-4% of cases need surgery. You need to find a good specialist , and maybe be prepared to drive a good distance to find one. Mine is a couple hours away, but it's worth the hassle, no one around me knows what they are doing. ----J.
