Orthopedics

I had a neck fusion of 4,5,and 6 October 2008.  In recent months I have had the vertebrae above irritated and out of place.  Also I have both sides of my jaws treated by him.  It has helped me to hear out of my ears which always feel filled with fluid..  T
Who do I see for the higher neck and facial/jaw issues.  Will I need to have surgery on my upper neck to stabilize it?

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed description or a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms or suggest an appropriate management plan. You could try consulting a primary care physician initially with possible reference to an orthopedician/ neurosurgeon/ ENT specialist for appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
