Spine surgeon recommendations in Philadelphia -PLEASE

Hi Everyone,

I’m looking for spine surgeon recommendations in the Philadelphia or Central NJ area.

I’ve been told I need a 2 level (C4-C6) cervical spinal fusion by an orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic guy sent me to a neurologist to confirm. The EMG report states “significant left C5-C6 radiculopathy with acute and chronic changes”.
The MRI shows evidence of a kyphotic deformity at C4-5 & C5-6 level with compression at both C4-5 and C5-6

I would like to get a second opinion.

I’d appreciate if anyone who has recommendations or ACDF experiences in my area could share them.

    Members at Spine-Health are not permitted to make recommendations regarding surgeons. You can use the FIND A DOCTOR facility to research surgeon's in you area.

    You may also find someone who is willing to send you a message with some more information. We can not post recommendations on the public forums.
