Want to find a top neurosurgeon in NJ
I did get some names of neurosurgeons from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ 08901 which includes a name also given to me by my primary doctor. I have heard so many negative things in general about back surgery and I'll travel, if necessary, to find the best or one of the best ones in this field.
I have a herniated disk resting on my sciatic nerve, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, degenertive disk disease, other herniated or bulging disks, and my primary problem is located by L4/L5. I have tried pain management for a while, only to have had too many cortisone injections into the same general area, and 2 months later wound up in the hospital with an adrenal insufficiency. I also have a bad case of fibromyalgia.
I am trying to find a neurosurgeon very experienced with complex back problems and who has a lot of experience with minimally invasive surgery such as discectomy. I am also willing to travel to NYC for a top surgeon.
Please give me names of those that are highly recommended...and maybe those that I should totally avoid as well.
