Tiger Woods undergoes second back surgery

28th Sep 2015

It’s deja vu for Tiger Woods as he underwent his second back surgery last Wednesday. This is the second microdiscectomy surgery Woods has had; the first procedure taking place in March of 2014.

Tiger Woods says, “This is certainly disappointing, but I’m a fighter. I’ve been told I can make a full recovery, and I have no doubt that I will.” He adds, “I appreciate the fans’ concern and support. This is unfortunate, but these things happen. I’ve been injured before and played again. It won’t be any different this time.”

Back in August, Woods originally complained of hip pain, not back pain, at the Wyndham Championship. An exam following the tournament revealed the source of pain was in his back, not his hip.

Woods surgery removed a small disc fragment that was pinching his nerve from his back. We wish Tiger the best of luck and a speedy recovery.
