I had a cage fusion in 1998, but make sure you are not on Medicaid or other free/cheap health insurance. His intensions seem good, but perhaps on a better insurance he would do a better job. Next surgeon said previous fusion was done horribly. Make sure he gets the pay scale he wants or you may end up with serious damage from your surgery

In 1995, hernited my L5S1. Had p.t., seemed to help along with a couple of steroid injections administered at BG Orthopaedic's Lexington office. 1998, was rear ended. Had to have discectomy. Full recovery. 2005, Sam's employees ran an unknown string of shopping carts into my back. This time, outcome was nowhere NEAR as successful. Dr. M was an amazing orth. surgeon. He never rushed to installing hardware or fusing where a more conservative approach could work. barb t.
