Shoulders too broad for a cervical ADR??

Hi, I am scheduled for surgery on April 23rd for a one level fusion or ADR at c5 c6. My neuro said he won'tknow if he can do the ADR or if he will have to fuse because "my shoulders may be too broad". Does that make any sense? Has anyone ever heard of that sort of thing before. I am in a lot of pain but am more scared of the fusion surgery than the ADR. I would probably only go through with it if I can get the ADR? Any advice? Does my neuro's response make sense? Can you not qualify for an ADR because of broad shoulders??
