Re: C3, C5 & C6 problems .....

Neck or C-spine falls under neurology. The rest of the spine I believe is orthopaedics but spine specialist should suffice.

Actually if anyone knows of a good neuro surgeon in Central FL - please kick me a name. Looks like I now have moderate degeneration at C3-5 with severe degeneration at C5-6 - per x-ray. Hate to even wonder what MRI would show now. ( I am "firing" my neurologist - he should have listened)

Thank you all for sharing your experiences. I was able to compile enough data to send to MGH in Boston for review. The Tumor Board addressed the Meningioma only , which leaves all the spine related 'stuff' and symptons with no definitive answers, as this was outside their scope of expertise. I'm not sure what I need to do at this point. Would this be a spine specialist or a nuerologist that would address my questions or concerns ?

Thank you again !
