Second Opinion for Spondy Fusion/Instrumentation
I live in DFW area. Have surgery scheduled at Baylor Dallas, but wondering if I should get second opinion.
Is a second opinion worthwhile?
Can anyone recommend a good spine surgeon in this area who could give me a second opinion?
Is it true that spondylolisthesis requires whole nine yards--open posterior/anterior fusion instrumentation, etc.? It makes sense to me that it would be necessary to stabilize the situation, but what do I know?
Has anyone had successful laser or other mini invasive surgery for moderately serious spondylolisthesis?
Thanks for reading.
