Johns Hopkins Neurosurgeon 2 – this is the director professor of students who initially, thought I’d want to perform my surgery responded to me today via email and in brief said the following:

1. Interbody
2. Back
3. Carbon fiber cage in the disk space and screws in the pedicles
4. Not from your hip. Synthetic.

Interesting to me the different approaches. Any thoughts as to which might be better in my case. The two primary issues I consider for such a (scary to me procedure) are:
1) recently previous smoking
2) auto-immune disorders – random, inconsistent. None the less still there.
