Can anyone recommend a surgeon with experience in repairing a torn dura? The patient has had a spinal fluid leak for almost a year. A surgery in 10/06 led to a leak at L3 under the ventral surface and under the nerve root.
Attempts have been made to repair it and failed. Time has not healed it. The pain and discomfort is very difficult to live with. Any suggestions?
Dr. Young are you aware of a doctor who has experience with this?
