I had my surgery done at Beaumont in Royal Oak. Never once did my surgeon push for a fusion. I have nothing but great things to say about my surgeon and that hospital. I agree fully that you should get a minimum of two opinions before deciding on surgery. I had several from doctors affiliated with different hospitals. They all said surgery was my only option. I do not regret going to Beaumont.
