Back Surgery for Collapsed L5 S1
have a collapsed L5 S1 disc.   I have gone through months of spinal decompression and then spine force therapy.  It made me more mobile but I still have intense constant pain and cannot sit for long periods of time -- which is essential to return to work. I also had a nerve block which did nothing.
I met with a surgeon who wants to perform an anterial interbody lumbar fusion. Is this the best type of surgery for a collapsed disc?  What about microsurgery or the synthetic disc replacement that I had seen on the news?  Would these be good choices for me?
