I've been to one ortho doc that says I need laminectomy for the stenosis and fusion for the spondylolisthesis. My PM doc said he does not see the spondy but I do need surgery for the stenosis at L4/5. I have an appt. with a neuro surgeon on Dec. 5th to see what he has to say. What do you do when you get conflicting opinions? I've only had one MRI in April 08 will either of these doctors want more test or x-rays before a surgery. If so what kind of test checks for spondy. I know I have the stenosis as both docs showed it to me on the MRI.
Thanks for your help.
