Re: Orthopedic vs Neuro

This is an issue that pops up on here from time to time and there is usually someone that will swear and be damn'd one is better than the other.

I've had 2 cervical fusions. The first one I had done was by a neuro, and it failed. And he was a top shelf guy too I found out afterword. But my ortho (who cleaned it up) is the head of the musculoskelatel (sp) department at a major university hospital, and his specialty is spinal surgery. I got referrals on about a half a dozen guys and picked him, he was the best qualified as far as I could tell. I checked them out on the net.

Take the BEST qualified guy you can find. You need to get your referrals, check out their pedigrees' and make your choice.

But dont get caught up in that neuro vs ortho crap, because it is just that.

You got it right Shepherd Lady
