More on Dr Jho
Nov 4, 2003
A short time ago I asked about Dr Jho. I had mostly good response on this guy. He's been doing alot of athletes and I've been reading about his approaches for about 5 years. I have a surgery scheduled for next Tuesday the 11th. I live in Connecticut so I'm 8 hours out on the drive plus some of the jitters. 15 years ago I had a posterior procedure at C5-6 for a herniation para-central and to the right. I did everything I could to avoid a fusion and that's the present plan. Now I have a slight reherniation and a spur. I appreciate all feedback.

Im fairly new to the message board but i have been researching Dr Jho alot also.I have recently been diag with a large herniated c-5c-6 disc with bone spurs and cord compression causing cervical meylopathy. I will be anxious to hear how things go for you with him, my mri and records are being mailed out to him tomarrow for a review. I asked my local neuro Dr. bajaw about him and he said he was a "big fan" of his and worked with him before. My local ns recommened for me to have an anterior diskectomy and fusion using bengal fibre cage with healos which is a bone growth stimulator and my own bone marrow. It sounded alot better than my own graft or cadaver bone.Good luck with your surgery. sewlf

[QUOTE=KGMAPM9294]Hi Pino,

I too am scheduled for surgery with Dr Jho on the 11th
on c6/c7 herniation with bone spur ( no cord compression thankfully)
I have a herniation at c2/c3 , no symptoms as it is a "central" herniation that isn't impinging on "anything"
bulges at 2 other levels
I am moderately nervous but we have the right man for the job
I'll see you in Pitts, my pre-op is 1200 the 10th
I'll leave Sunday, 7 hrs from NJ

Hey Mike I have to see him on the 10th at 2:00. I went through this before but it's been awhile. I'm not big on being " put to sleep " or the " drill " part of the procedure. I have read many articles written about his procedures both by him and about him. I know the deal step by step. There is no perfect ending but it's got to beat the fusion alternative. Patrick
