Hello Everyone :-)
I am going in for a consult on March 29th for a possible Thoracic surgery. I have been reading and researching back operations and I am confused as to why there isnt alot of Neuro's who do this type of surgery. If any of you have any information or a website I can go to concerning different Thoracic operations particularily DDD, Spinal fusion and herniated disc repairs because those are the three main problems I am consulting about. How do they operate? Do they go thru the side, the front or the back? And does he have to collapse a lung?
Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
