Has anyone heard of cervical discectomies and fusion. What were the results of the precedure? What are the halachic problems? I am in the preparation stage for such an operation and have a few Halachic questions. 1. my neck will have to be clean shaven, ( I now have a full beard), what shavers are allowed? 2. The precedure uses bone from a cadaver, I am a Cohen, what are my options? Anyone have any knowledge of the precedure discribed that can fill in some blanks. Thanks
