Second Opinion: Surgical recommendations can vary from surgeon to surgeon, based upon experience, training, and proficiency. I would suggest at least getting a second opinion from a surgeon who has done additional fellowship training in spinal disorders before surgery is ruled out. You may also want to look into a multidisciplinary pain management program.
