I am new, and hope I do this correctly. 23 years ago, I had fusion surgeries at C5 thru T1. My surgeon has determined that the degeneration, pain, etc. at the C4-C5 level has advanced to the point where an additional fusion is required. He is calling the procedure a "soft" anterior fusion, in an effort to maintain some mobility. After scouring the Web, I am unable to find any definitive information using that particular terminology, and was wondering if anyone out there knows of a fusion of this type, or may have experience with such a surgery ....?
Thanks .... Miss May
