    Just got word that UCSF Spine has postponed all surgeries and clinic appointments. I suspect this will soon be the case for all non-essential surgeries around the world.

    Not sure what radiculopathy has to do with the subject, but radiculopathy simply implies a pinched nerve. It can occur before, after, or have nothing to do with...

    It makes me sad that anyone thinks that most surgeons aren't open and honest. While I've heard some horror stories about surgeons, I have found that most surgeons are honest.

    I totally agree with Pooka. If you want to research surgical outcomes, you should absolutely stay away from chiropractic sites.
