Re: My Journey to Cervical Spine Surgery

For me it would depend on the exact procedure the local NS was going to use and how many times he has performed the surgery successfully. Schiffer and Jho have different procedures, although I see that Dr. Jho has added Schiffer's CED to the list of procedures he does (I think). Schiffer goes thru the disc typically while Jho goes thru the bone. I thought Jho's procedure was capable of resolving more problems than Schiffer's. Schiffer's doesn't deal with bone spurs whereas Jho's does.
It would be hard to find someone as experienced in cervical procedures as Jho. He spends two days a week doing cervical procedures almost exclusively.
It's been two weeks since my surgery and I am still doing well, although I'm still getting a knot at the base of my neck sometimes.
