    Howdy, Welcome to Spine Health!!! Did your doctor(s) advise of fusion at C6/7? No insurance, hummm... I have seen others on here go to "teaching hospitals." Some of them will help out, but to what level I am not sure. I am sorry you are going through this. Has your doctor given any thoughts on how this can be done? I would at least ask to see if there are options that you might be able to use. I wish I had more solid guide for you. Keep us posted on how it is going.
