The power of many: If a person sees a doctor who has 14 years of practice experience, and asks a question, she gets an answer based on 14 years of experience. If there are 70,000 doctors who are HealthTap members, and the patient posts a free question, there are 70,000 x 14 = 980,000 years... or about 1 million years of doctor experience that can help her. That's crowdsourcing the knowledge, the power of many.

Vision improvement: If done properly, it should make your vision more clear in the distance. But might give you a little more trouble reading up close. In some cases, usually by your mid-40's, it becomes necessary to change to a bifocal, where the bottom part of the lens is for reading up close.

Blurred vision: If you are talking about a glasses prescription, then you might have slightly blurred vision in the far distance until your eyes adjust. If it doesn't clear up, then go back to your eye doctor to have it checked.

Maybe.: The chemistry and physiology of all humans is pretty close. There are some minor variations in presentation of disease based on sex and race and certainly there are differences in genetic risk factors. But again most of the major variations are covered in training.

Be more specific pls: The term myelomalacia refers to an abnormality if white matter, and this may be in the brain or spinal cord. It's a very general term. The underlying cause is important to determine, in order to decide what, if any, treatment is appropriate.
A 31-year-old member asked:

How do I find an expert (out of state) who may have experience with more/other options to acdf?

Dr. Thomas Dowling
Orthopedic Spine Surgery 40 years experience
You can go to : Websites like north american spine society (www.Nass.Org) or www.Spineuniverse.Com for further information about spine surgeons . Really the only equivalent option to an acdf may be a total disc replacement but there are certain criteria for this procedure that is more focused than for an acdf. For multiple levels, there may be other options as well.
