Help! I have a terrible T7-T8 central protrusion causing "moderately severe" cord deformity. Went to a neurosurgeon today in the Austin area. He's good, just recommended that I find someone who does VATS (Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery) or MASS (Minimal Access Spine Surgery. He thinks it would be beneficial to receive opinion by a surgeon who specializes in this before I pull the trigger on Open thoracic surgery. Does anyone out there know of any surgeons in Texas? I have no problem travelling to Dallas or Houston if it's necessary to find a good surgeon. Thanks in advance ~Beth
