    Dr. Jho - Thoracic Disc Surgery


    I am seeing Dr. Jho in few weeks for a consultation concerning possible surgery for a T7-T8 Disc Herniation. If anyone has undergone Dr. Jho's thoracic discectomy procedure, could you please share your results? Your opinion would be much appreciated?

    Thank You

    I have heard of Dr. Jho. Someone I knew consulted with him. I heard he was supposed to be good and have thought of consulting with him myself. Please let me know how things go and your thoughts. I may want to consult with him in the future.

    I had a c-5- c-6 foraminectomy without fusion by Dr. Jho about 7 years ago to address the gradual loss of function in the fingers. The surgery went without a hitch and I regained full use of my fingers. Dr. Jho said that I had two enormous spurs compressing spinal nerves and if I had not addressed them when I did, I would have had permanent nerve damage. He also said that if I ever allowed someone to fuse me, I would have been permanemtly disabled within two to three years. It takes awhile to get an appointment with him. He is not warm and fuzzy but polite and professional. Every one of Dr. Jho's patients get a private room an fantastic attention from the nursing staff. The doctor has a LOT of pull at the hospital.

    I now, have neck pain and pain in the traps due to progressive arthritis. I just had facet joint injections by a local doctor. This new neck pain is NOT anything to due with the previous surgery.

    So neck pain never ends. When will they do some research into neck pain. They concentrate on other things like finding a cure for aids, cancer - that is fine but living with constant pain and not trying to find a cure for it. Researchers, please cure me of this horrific neck pain. I want to be what I used to be.
