Dr. Young, I have undergone 2 surgeries now to de-tether my spinal cord. In both surgeries the outcome looked promising, but now (again) after only 3 months post surgery, my spinal cord has re-tethered and is causing a fluid blockage/syrinx.

My neurosurgeon seems to be frustrated and at a loss as to what options are viable. Do you have any information on new techniques or new grafting materials that might be appropriate? I can't tell you how nervous it makes me knowing that my neurosurgeon doesn't know what to do.
