: I am going in for surgery on march 13, 2000 to have spinal fusion done on two levels. Does anyone have an opinion as to if I should elect to have a titanium plate put in. The neurosurgeon has left it up to me and I dont know what to do. He has told me about the pros and cons but doesnt give an opinion or reccomendation of his own. I do have confidence in him as my doctor but wish he would give me a more definitive reccomedation. Please email me with any suggestions
i am fused from c5-t1 with a titanium plate. i was not given a choice about what type of plate i wanted; however, i have had no problems thus far. there x-rays show a very clean fusion.
