    questions about oeg?

    this is my first post so hi to every1.
    ok im a quad c5/c6 for just under 2 years. i recently lost the motor fuction in my left wrist so i had an mri scan and it found a 'syrinx' in my spinal cord. so my consultant wants to operate and try to prevent further damage.
    so instead of this i would rather try out oeg surgery to improve my chances of recovering motor function.
    my questions are firstly is the procedure safe? and if i do go ahead with surgery what kind of recovery of sensation and motor can i expect to achieve?
    also can some1 please help me get into contact with Dr. Lima.
