    cervical spine surgery at Mass General

    Anybody had a cervical fusion or cervical disc replacement done at Mass General Hospital in Boston? It is rated as one of the top hospitals for neurosurgery-however, neurosurgery encompasses a multiplicity of different surgical disciplines (brain surgery, spinal tumors,etc...) So, I guess my question is has anybody had recent cervical disc related spine surgery by a Harvard trained neurosurgeon at MGH, who was your doctor, and were you generally satified with the results?

    I had my surgery done at Northwestern Hosp in Chicago. The only thing I would recommend is to make sure your surgeon is a spine specialist. That is most crucial.
