  • Is that shaving the facet joints? I heard of it but haven't had it. Maybe someone else can help. Charry

  • Yes, it is. Lots of removal of bone and arthritis. I haven't heard from anyone on the site who has had it unfortunately. This recovery is MUCH tougher than all the other surgeries I had put together.
