Case Studies Presented by Todd McCall, MD

High Risk Multi-level Cervical Fusion

Adjunct Use of a Bone Growth Stimulator
Presented by: T. McCall MD

Since the ACDF, she has experienced chronic neck pain. New symptoms have developed during the past 4 months. Using the visual analog scale (1 to 10, with 10 being the worse pain imaginable) she grades her pain as 10/10 in severity.
