Facet Arthropathy means that the facet joints found on the posterior side of the vertebrae are suffering from arthritis. The Multilevel term refers to the fact that multiple facet joints are affected by this condition and that it involves different vertebrae. Multilevel facet arthropathy usually occurs in later life, when the effects of wear and tear are starting to show.

If you have been diagnosed with something you do not understand then you need to contact your doctors office and schedule a consultation and when you get in there you can ask all of your questions and the doctor will be able to break things down so you can understand them.
