I am seeking information on cervical spine fusion surgery.  I have disk prolapse at C5-C6 with loss of strenth and constant tingling in my right arm and hand.  I live in Germany.  Two noted neurosurgeons here have recommended the fusion procedure taught/develope by Dr. Wofhard Caspar at the University of the Saarland in Homburg.  Is Germany the best place to have this done?  Is this procedure likely to have a high probability of success?  I am an ultra-distance runner and want to return to hard running.  
Is this the same operation Lou Holtz recently had?  Is the Mayo Clinic the best place to go.
I will deeply appreciate your responses.
