The Centinel Spine-Tiger Woods Partnership in the News:

Golf Magazine:
"It was clear that Woods didn’t sign up for this particular surgery so that he could come back and contend in major championships; he signed up for this so that the pain would go away and he might live some semblance of a normal life."


Golf Digest:
"After the procedure was completed, doctors told Woods to stand up... 'Stand up? You just cut me open. Why do you need me to stand up?' The doctor’s reply, as Woods recalls with a smile: 'You’re OK to stand up now, it’s good.' The nerve pain in his right leg, which had plagued him for years, had vanished." "


"This video is simply yet another example of why Woods’ comeback to the peak of the golf world may just be the greatest comeback in the history of sports... Absolutely remarkable stuff."


Roland Martin via Twitter:
"Man, the pain of @TigerWoods back is WILD. This is a helluva breakdown."


Becker's Spine:
"The procedure allowed Mr. Woods to resume playing professional golf and led to him clinching his 15th PGA Tour major win — his first in 11 years."


"...this is one of the few interviews Tiger Woods has given in quite some time on a subject he often brushes aside. These seven minutes of testimony ring true, especially about one of the most painful episodes of Tiger's career: his back surgery."


The Athletic | Greatest Sports Comebacks:
"How can this not be a comeback for the ages, a feat of modern medicine and unparalleled resolve? For a sport built on rotation and torque, how can Woods' surgery not forever change the way fusions... are viewed?"


They Regained Their Lives

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.
