I met with another orthapedic spine dr today. He wants me to see his pain management dr in his office for this radio frequency ablation. From what Ive read it may not work so well on cervical spine. Has anyone had a good outcome with this? I have mild stenosis from 2 bulging discs, kyphosis c4-c7 & congenital fusion of c5-6. He advised me that I should go thru this to exhaust other avenues and prolong surgery as long as possible. Eventually yes I need surgery but to wait until the kyphosis & stenosis forces it.
I'm getting frustrated with these dr's that have pain management right in their office making you see yet another dr for more $ in their office. He does not prescribe medication only his pain management dr does. Ive had shots in the past that did absolutly nothing.
