Hi Dr. Corenman,

So if you respond better to capsular blocks than medial branch blocks, does that offer more information into the diagnosis of the area of pain or require a different treatment than rhizotomy?

Also, if there is degeneration/spurring in the C2-3 facet joint, what are your thoughts on the success/pain relief of having the spurring removed (joint debridement) and performing a rhizotomy? This is the type of procedure I might consider instead of a fusion.

Thanks again for your time,
