I am so confused tonight - I have read and researched so much on spinal fusion today that my eyes are crossing. I am going to my dr tomorrow for my neck but I want to ask him some questions if I ever decide on back fusion. I do not understand why so many people have the open surgery rather the minimally invasive type. Could it be the dr does not know how to do it? Thank you very much. Brenda
