In a bid to educate individuals on spinal injury and disease, experts at Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas ( have reviewed a famous sport personality’s spine surgery case and published an intriguing result. has found that patients suffering from spinal injury and disease can regain their lives after undergoing the right solution.

This is what a top-rank golfer has experienced firsthand after submitting himself to spinal fusion surgery in April 2017.

The said sport celebrity has nothing but gratitude and praises to his surgeon and Centinel Spine who provided the technology for his surgery, and claimed that his experience has had a profound impact on him and his family.

Throughout his career, the said sport icon has suffered numerous injuries, the most striking of which are his back injuries.

He has endured ongoing crippling pain in his back since 2014 that prompted him to withdraw from a slew of tournaments.

But the professional golfer has since recovered after he underwent an Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion procedure in 2017.

During that time, he had several surgical options available to him to alleviate his back pain. But he chose Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion to reconstruct his lumbar spine upon his spine surgeon’s recommendation.

The top golfer also revealed that he did a lot of research into the various spinal surgical procedures available to him and was convinced that surgery through an anterior approach represented the best option.

Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion is a spine surgery that involves approaching the lower back from the front. This is performed to fuse together painful vertebrae, which allows them to heal into a single, solid bone.

Approaching the spine from the anterior can be beneficial compared to posterior surgery, which is performed through the back. One of Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion’s most important benefits is its more direct access to the intervertebral disk, thus allowing for a minimally disruptive procedure.

After determining that the anterior approach surgery was the right option, he relied on his spine surgeon to direct him to the right implant solution for his back.

He rested for a couple of weeks before he began therapy. Following some rehabilitative interventions, he is back again to his active lifestyle.

“I have regained my life, and playing golf again at this level, is just an added bonus,” he added.

Prior to the spinal fusion surgery, this top-notch golfer also underwent several procedures such as microdiscectomy. But it is ALIF, which is his fourth attempt at back surgery, that eventually alleviated his ongoing back pains.

After looking at this sport personality’s case, has concluded that patients suffering from spinal injury and disease do not have to live with the pain forever. Their back pains do not have to negatively affect their active lifestyle too.

With the right procedure, they can also regain their lives like what this famous sport personality has already experienced.

This is why they must seek the aid of medical professionals to help them find the appropriate solution.
