I believe that Dr. Saunders is still diagnosing and Dr. Annest is doing the surgery. He is in his 80’s and may have just retired though. I was considering going to Dr. Hugh Gelabert at UCLA Medical Center. He seems so well liked and they are doing some interesting imaging for TOS there. I understand that there is a doctor at Stanford who is knowledgable as well. If you have any feedback, I am all ears but I am not trying to put you in an awkward position. You have been amazing with helping me! I am taking all of your words to heart. No pressures.
When the PT told me that I had C1 C2 instability as well, I became concerned about creating further cervical instability with surgery and also questioned what was coming from that issue and what from the TOS. It has been a wild ride.
