Spondylolisthesis diagnosed on my sister

    My sister who is 69 was diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis and her doctor wants to do MIS ( minimally invasive surgery) by making two small incisions in her back and putting in two pins which is supposed to hold two vertebre together preventing them from slipping onto the next vertebra.In your opinion is this the best way to correct this or do you have newer / more advanced ways to correct this? Is this the same as fusing? The doctor said he thinks she was born with this and due to her age is has become exacerbated and degenerated. She also has nerve pain because of this. Because I've been reading your blog from the beginning I feel that you might suggest other ways to treat this.

    Thank you so much for your answer,

    no way to answer this without films and a history. This would be a good educational consult question.
