EMG NCS surgical candidate question

My MRI showed "severe or marked" stenosis at C4-5, 5-6. Also moderate at C3-4 & 6-7. I just got EMG / NCS results back and it confirms radiculopathy at all those levels and C-8 and T1 as well. It also states no active denervation. So my question is does that (no active denervation) mean I'm a Good or Bad candidate for surgery?
Cervical injections did nothing. I'm getting worse by the day.
Can anyone shed some light on what no active denervation means as far as surgery is concerned?
