I have been diagnosed with severe cervical stenosis at C5-C6, C6-C7. I ve following ADR and fusion surgeries from the beginning. Now I am wondering about minimally invasive surgeries. I have never heard anyone getting those surgeries for multiple level severe stenosis. I do not want to get fusion or ADR for the following reasons
1) I have severe stenosis. I have a disc bulge which causes it. My bulge is not that bad (no herniation, no height loss), it just my spinal canal is very narrow. So I am wondering if I can save my real disc partially.
2) While a lot of people have good results from ADR & fusion, I see some complications like adjacent level disease, fused ADR, instrumentation issues.
I am wondering why there is not one single procedure like fusion and what are the options.. whether there are statistics with more than 100 patients?
MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.
