cervical spine fusion surgery healing with hiv
May 23, 2006

I am going to have surgercal spine fusion surgery and would like to know if there is any problem with bone grafting or fusion in the neck. My cd4 is 108 and viral load is 170. My labs are continuing to get better monthly.

Response from Dr. Henry

HIV infected patients generally do well with surgery particularly if nutrition/hygiene status is good and their HIV infection is well controlled with medication. KH
