Hi everyone! I'm the one who posted "New on Board, Spine Surgeon Appt. 12/07. Have any of you had experience - info from doctors, the procedure itself, what-have-you - with facet joint replacement surgery? I've done some Internet research on it, and have learned that it's apparently a "kill a few birds with one stone and much better than fusion" procedure. Feedback, if any of you can provide it, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. BTW, this is a fantastic board (if nothing else, the moral support we give and receive).
