Given this additional information, in your opinion, would you recommend trying the L4
-S1 decompression w/ Coflex at L4
before a L4
anterior-posterior fusion or going directly to the L4-S1 anterior-posterior fusion?
My proposed surgeon has expressed concern w/ leaving the 7mm herniations/ruptures at L4-L5 and L5-S1 untreated. After only meeting w/ me for 5mins. and not having sufficient information plus having a bacterial infection, I postponed the decompression w/ Coflex.
