I have severe pain in my back that goes down my butt and legs to my feet. I have a herniated disc at l-5 s-1. My neurosurgeon wants to do a discectomy and facet joint fusion and i wanted to know if anyone has any experience with that type of fusion. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I believe what my doc wants to use is an implant called facetlinx but i did come across trufuse during my research. I'm just not sure why he would rather do a facet fusion instead of a vertebrae fusion. Thanks for your input
