Dr. Robert Masson established his career as a neurosurgeon who specializes in complex spinal disorders and sports spine medicine. Using the prodisc Total Disc Replacement in his patients' procedures since day-one of FDA clearance, he is passionate about motion preservation and a “return to life” philosophy—but Dr. Masson is not only an accomplished surgeon and prodisc advocate, he has also experienced his own journey as a patient with pain and discomfort stemming from a neck injury and degeneration in his cervical spine.
In May of 2013, Dr. Masson underwent a total disc replacement procedure with prodisc C. Since then, Dr. Robert Masson is "Back on Course"—as a race car driver, as a spine surgeon, as an adventurer, and as a family man. To see why he chose motion preservation with the prodisc C and how it has allowed his post-surgical active life to flourish, watch the latest rediscover patient video, "Life After prodisc | Back on Course with Dr. Robert Masson".
These individuals can inspire your journey to healing and life after disc replacement surgery—and the hope of freedom from spine-induced pain and discomfort.
