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.

Can a bone in neck appearing on MRI require neck surgery. ?

Could be

Bone
It depend on the bone and what's wrong with it. I see in your profile you mentionned "broken clavicle". If you have a simple fracture, it may be treated conservatively. If the fracture is comminuted, infected or articular, surgery may be the best way to treat.

From the information provided, it will also depend on your age, sex, ability to heal, nutrition status, compliance to instructions (ex. staying off your feet/cast), smoking, alcohol, etc. Majority of patients will heal fine in 3-4 months time without surgery. Good luck.

Dr. Walter Husar answered:

I have had surgery on neck with fusion on c4-6 and now I have denderative artihis and my c2-3 are mildly chanaging will bone growth cell device help so I won't have to go back and fuse them soon?

Probably not

Bone growth stimulator will aid in forming new bone to allow fusion to occur after surgery. It will not work at another level and act on a degenerative joint in the side.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

I have multinodular goiter. I suffer discomfort and pressure in the neck continuously. Is there any treatment or have to resort to surgery?

Choices

Neck
Your physician will be able to discuss with you whether you want radioactive iodine, levothyroxine suppression, or surgery. Reasonable people will make different choices. In your position, I'd get a good surgeon, but you must exercise autonomy after learning of all your options. Good luck.
