Lumbar fusion second opinion

Question

Hi, facing a surgery after a bad case of disc herniation, any ideas about an orthopediatrist to consult to get another view? Preferably if you have experience with him/her related to lumabr fusion. Or just share your experience if you had it. Thanks.

An 80 year old lady had that surgery in January at Cavell. Surgeon was Dr. Bouillet. She has made a remarkable recovery, and is even driving again! Suggest you get more recommendations.

7 years ago I was told I needed surgery on my spine.

7 years ago I started doing yoga and had the help of a chiropractor.

Not saying it would work for you but...

Still can't do the Lotus but I feel better than ever.

Surgery carries a risk and is irreversible. Try: Andullatie therapie.

Werkt andullatietherapie bij fibromyalgie en andere chronische aandoeningen?

Hello, my name is Joyce. I have had two successful back operations by Dr de Geeter in the hospital in Halle. I had a disc hernia operation about 6 years ago, followed by a slipped vertebrae in 2010. Since then i have been pain free. I highly recommend Dr de Geeter. He took time to explain everything and the options and consequences. Big plus is his English. You can contact me at jvankeer@yahoo dot com. Here is the website for the hospital/doctor. http://sintmaria.be/nl/de-geeter
