Wobblers surgery using Adamo Disc?
Wondering if anyone has experience with this procedure. Our 8 y/o boy was dx last week. He is improving with steroids, but it seems from all I've read that is Fool's Gold, and will not last. He is otherwise healthy and strong, vWD clear, no DCM. I like the idea of the Adamo option because it has a short recovery time, and minimally invasive. The clinic that diagnosed him doesn't do this type of wobbler's surgery, only the "old school" kind, many hours on the table, and prolonged recovery time. I have emailed the neurologist at Ohio State who is supposedly a wobblers expert, but not heard anything back from them. I've looked through this board, but didn't find anything on Adamo surgery other than just brief mention.
Many thanks to anyone with info. We live in the midwest, and will drive him to a surgeon with some experience with this procedure once we find a good option.
