TIger Woods Back Surgery Video (Example)

Tiger Woods will miss the Masters for the first time in 20 years because of back surgery for a herniated disc.  He had the surgery on Monday in Park City, Utah and will soon begin rehabilitation.  There is no time table for his return.

Below is a video of my own back surgery for a discectomy that was done via small portal incisions about 5.5 years ago.  I was miserable prior to the surgery and am amazingly better.  Many thanks to my excellent surgeons and physical therapists.  View the video below to gain a better understanding of the mechanics of the surgery.

I wish Tiger the best of luck in his recovery.  I hope his surgery will allow him to return to the golf course soon but more importantly at a much higher functional level for a long time.

It is important to note that a variety of biologic treatments for this condition are presently in development.  Hundreds of professionals worldwide are working on these solutions.  For more information, visit:  BiologicOrtho.com
