I have stenosis in my foramen on C5/6 and C6/7. I have seen Dr. Jho who recomends a 2 level anterior microforminatomy. In order to get coverage from OHIP (Ontario's provincial health insurance) an application must be submitted (which my family physcian will do) and on the application one must include the names of one or more Ontario doctors confirming that the procedure is not offered in Ontario. Unfortunately the specialist who has been treating me with ESI is away for six weeks and I'd really like to get the application underway asap.

I'm wondering whether any Ontario residents have gone through this procedure and been operated on by Dr. Jho. If they have, I'd like to know whether they received OHIP coverage, and if so, do they have the name of a specialist in Ontario who I could contact to request that they will confirm to OHIP that the procedure is not offered in Ontario.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

cheers!
