With consultation to city doctors he has been advised complete bed rest and surgery related to spinal cord. Can you exactly tell what problem he is facing and what is the required treatment.

Good afternoon...
It may be nerve compression in cervical spine in any level so he is feeling pain & numbness in fingers.
This is called Cervical Radiculopathy.
Causes cam be few Spondylosis/Stenosis/Disc Protrude as well....
MRI can show exact picture and symptoms can correlate the magnitude of problem.
But you should go for physiotherapy 1st TENS,Hot Pack, Pulsed ultrasonic, Therapeutic exercises strengthening and flexibility exs.
Manual therapy(Mulligan/Maitland/Butler's Neural mobilisation)
He has to take proper precautions and try for lifestyle modifications also.
