The disk herniation effacing the cord into theneural foramen bilaterally.The patient was offered either a 3-level fusion, (becausedoing a fusion above and below a normal segment wouldput this segment at too much risk of having spinal corddecompression) or a cervical total disk replacement atthe C4/5 level.
