Re: Corpectomy OR Discectomy????

STAY AWAY FROM THE CORPECTOMY......they take out the disk like an acdf but they remove the vertebrae itself as well.....big concern for paralysis with that operation....from what ur stating the mri says "no cord compression" the dr who suggested it is an idiot....remember most surgeons are like salesmen....need to find the right one with your health as their genuine interest
