new neurosurgeon

I saw my new neurosurgeon today. The one I'd had surgery with last May (lumbar laminectomy) does not accept my current insurance thru a medicare advantage plan.

My new surgeon was able to download my myelegram/ct scan of my cervical spine. I also had my relevant medical records for him to review. He came to the same conclusion my previous surgeon did: recommending a two lvl cervical discectomy/fusion with titanium plate and screws.

I'll have this done once I've fully paid my share of cost for my last surgery. I still owe the radiology group, anesthesiologist and surgeon. I should be able to have this done in May or June this year.
