I'm facing my third neck surgery! Help!

I'm facing my third neck surgery! I'm very worried. No one seems to do well after three neck surgeries It all started years ago after a whiplash injury. I had a posterior discectomy for a ruptured C5-6 disk with right-sided pain. Years later, I had an anterior cervical fusion of C5-6-7 for a ruptured C6-7 with left sided pain. Now years later, the pain is starting in again on the left side?
Who are the best surgeons in Florida for this?
Who is known for total cervical spine reconstruction?
What else do I need to know? Thank you.

Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical detail of the condition it would be very difficult to comment on the situation on suggest an appropriate management plan. The best I can suggest is to have this evaluated by a neurosurgeon or an orthopedician at a university/ teaching hospital. Doctors affiliated to them usually have a good experience and knowledge of the recent surgical advances.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
