Has anyone had a:
1.severe herniation (sophia's is 26MM)
2. scoliosis (sophia's 34 degrees on top and 28 degrees below)
3. with NO synrix and asymptomatic and had the dura opened?
My daughter is 5 and the above is her situation. One doctor says remove c1, open dura, shrink tonsiles and no duraplasty.
Another doctor, just remove the c1. in 6 months do a check to see if the scolossi is better and the size of the herniation. if no improvement then discuss the more aggressive surgery.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
