Im new to this but need advice for my husband. He was diagnosed with spinal stenosis (cervical) c3-6 with early myelopathy and myelomalacia. Md wants to do Laminoplasty and spinal fusion.The MD told him the surgery and recovery would be very painful. I have been looking for other options and have found the Laser Spine Institute. Does anyone have any advice for us?

    i can't give you any information about the laser ins, but i would suggest research as much as you can about the condition and surgical options.
    spine-health has many articles and videos that provide you details regarding your husband's situation.
    on the spine-health main page, you can click on conditions to research the various conditions and then click on treatments to see what treatments are available.
    the better informed you are in this subject will help so much in making the right choices.
