Has anyone had experience with having Cervical Endoscopic Discectomy surgery?
less invasive/no fusing sounds like it is too good to be true????

This is my MRI report (short version)

c3-4: small central disc protrusion indents anterior sac but not the cord

c5-6: broad based protrusion...effaces the anterior thecal sac contacts the cord narrowing the canal to 8mm in AP diameter

c6-7: moderate sized broad based protrusion..contacts the anterior aspect of the cord, narrowing canal to 8.5mm in AR diameter

symptoms: neck pain.. pain/tingling down right arm and thumb and pointy finger

One more question if you don't mind my lengthy post....

it also says c7-t1: 4mm x 6mm nerve root sleeve cyst...what is this

Thank You!!
