[ posting this for a friend: ]

I'm interested in your opinion on the following:
	- laminectomy
	- harrington rods
	- fusion of lower spine (L3-5)

My doctor has recommended all these complicated procedures be done at once!
I am a 25 year old woman with AMC and scoliosis, but I'd like a 2nd (3rd?)
opinion as to whether this is feasible.  I also have a cyst in the lower
part of the back.  Has this been seen in an AMC patient before, or am I
the first?

Thanks!   - Nancie Etzel
