As you can see on my bio below, I am a "neckkie." My OS ordered an SSEP and I have never heard of it or known of anyone else having one. From my research, it is something they usually do intraoperatively to monitor the spinal cord. I read a lot of "stuff" about it, but don't know what it means in English, know what I mean? Anyone had one? Are the results definitive? Will this really inform the doctor of whether or not to do single, double, or triple level fusion? (He told me he is doing the SSEP to help determine how many levels to fuse). I have two herniations: C4/C5 and C6/C7 with major spinal cord compression at C4/5, and nerve root compression at C6/7. C6/7 also has pretty severe degenerative changes and large bone spurs as well as loss of disc space height. Anyone had this test or have knowledge of it?
