Which type of treatment or surgery to fix bone spurs on #5 n 6 neck vertebrae?

Cerv spondy

Bones
Arthritis equates to bone spurs. In the absence of pinched nerve pain, no surgical treatment is necessary. PT alone is likely sufficient. However, if you are asking about surgical options, depends on where nerve pinched. Options include foraminotomy posteriorly or anterior diskectomy and fusion. Both have merits and cons that should be discussed with your surgeon. Disk replacement not for spurs.

What kind of surgery do I need or what can I do for bone spurs in my feet?

Bone spurs

Extremity-foot
That is quite a wide topic. Bone spurs range from small , but painful, spurs on toes that can be addressed via minimal incision surgery, to larger spurs like heel spurs and haglund's deformities that are more conventional in nature. Circulatory status determines surgery or conservative care. Seek the help of a podiatrist to guide you with what needs to be done. Good luck !

Dr. William Newton answered:

I have osteoarthritis and bone spurs in my cervical spine and bulging discs in C-3 through C-6. Will this require surgery to fix?

Depends

Cervical_spine
The finding you listed are very common. MRIs are very sensitive and pick up many abnormalities. Just remember that we treat patients, not MRIs. The main question is symptoms. The main indication for surgery on the neck is weakness or neurologic deficit. Pain is not the best indication for surgery and this may lead to dissatisfaction with the surgical outcomes.

Been diagnosed with frozen shoulder but arm turns red when raised at shoulder height and bent towards head, what causes this. I had surgery on 7-14-11 for impingement, bone spurs and part of bursae sack removed also have a small tear that was not repaired

Hard to tell

Head
Agree with Dr. Wood in part regarding color change. Probably worth examining. Would want more details on the "small tear" that wasn't repaired. If full thickness I would advise repair especially with continued pain. Stiffness may be just inhibition from the pain. Seek out a shoulder specialist this go round. There is a difference in skill set amongst surgeons so be careful next go round.

Dr. Ronald Oberman answered:

Without surgery, how are bone spurs treated?

Depend on cause

Bones
If due to excessive tension on tendon or ligament inserting into bone, this must be eliminated. Stop excessive pressure on particular bone involved.

What kind of treatment or surgery to fix bone spurs?

Depends

Bone
Treatment is directed at what is the cause of the spur. Is it biomechanical: orthotics would be helpful. Is it due to a tight shoe: change shoes. Is it due to a deformity of some kind. Then this should be addressed. Palliative treatment, including injections can be done. Surgery to remove spur can be performed if indicated.

Why do some bone spurs return after surgery to remove them?

No short ans.

Arthritis
Bone spurs occur as a result of progressive remodeling, usually in response To increased physiologic stress on the bone as a result of cartilage loss (arthritis). Removing them does not change the physiology of the arthritic joint, thus they tend to recur.
