When I see my patients pre-operatively, what risk factors should I warn them about that may increase their chance for a post-operative infection? I have a 65-year-old female who fell and suffered a central cord syndrome. What's her prognosis and are there other types of incomplete spinal cord syndromes? I have a 34-year-old patient with back pain and some buttock pain for two weeks. When should I get an MRI? Do I need to perform neuromonitoring for every spine surgery? The cost appears to be relatively high and I want to be selective about its use. I have a 64-year-old female who was fused posteriorly in the lumbar spine and I need to correct her lordosis. What's the difference between a Smith-Peterson and a pedicle subtraction osteotomy?
