    are you talking about VATS? The surgery where they make a couple small incisions and use a camera to help fuse? Well my mom is a surgeon and she read a bunch of stuff about this surgery and she was really interested in it and she took me to see a doctor that specializes in it and he was a jerk. So I'm definetly not having it, I'm not really sure what you have to be to qualify for the surgery because the doctor didn't tell me anything about it. Except that there was no way I was going to have it. sorry I couldn't be of more help.
