Dear Herman,

You don't really tell me enough about the person's symptoms, age and onset for me to make a judgement. I would however strongly recommend that a surgical fusion is considered as a last option and that you have exhausted other forms of more conservative treatment. Please give me some more information and I will endeavour to provide you with a more definitive answer.

Best wishes,

Gary Riley
