my friend is 28 she has a 9mm hemangioma in her t5 vertebre which has deteriorated her disc in that area to almost nothing. she has been shuffled around from dr to dr and finally we came across a  radiology oncologist which said that she would be good candidate for CK. she has loss of feeling in one leg some times and has incredible back pain everyday. some times she cant even get out of bed because of the pain. is this a viable solution to the hemangioma and if so what do you think the treatment would consist of? and would you suggest surgery to replace the disc thats missing of course you havent seen the scans. im just trying to get worst case.

CK can fix the hemangioma, but won't fix a disk problem. Sounds like you need to see another spine specialist to get another opinion.
