sorry for the late answer, simply medhelp cannot always give an urgent answer. if he still being untreated you can do it with a neurosurgeon, who will liberate via a 3-4 levels laminectomy his lower segment of the lumbar canal, then he should complete a lumbar instrumentation better with polyaxial pedicular screws in a number of 6  [minimum] as you describe [since his mri is not downloaded to me], not with vertebro-spinous spacers in this case, foraminotomy should be effected at the the L5-S1 bilaterally. posterolateral graft can be used. out of bed after 48 h, serious ambulation after 6-7 days, lumbar brace for 3 months, take care about not being compressing his chest to prevent respiratory troubles during tat 3 months  [popular complication in elderly] . remember to suplement him with all types of bone-fortifying meds, and please if you are a physician google out my email so i can lead you with my advices towards best results.
