Dr. Lewis has years of experience using Centinel Spine products since the founding of the company in 2008. Dr. Lewis is trained and certified to use all the products in the Centinel Spine portfolio.
Centinel Spine offers the largest selection of choices for anterior lumbar surgery to address spinal disease. The wide spectrum of products presents solutions for all stages of spinal degeneration. Learn how one of these devices helped Tiger Woods make a career comeback.
Tiger Woods Miraculous Comeback After Back Surgery
In 2017, surgeons implanted Centinel Spine’s STALIF M-TI device into Tiger Woods’ lower back. The renowned American golfer had previously experienced back and leg pain and underwent an L5/S1 lumbar vertebrae fusion to obtain pain relief. The L5/S1 or lumbosacral disc separates the lower back spine from the sacrum, the triangular bone that sits between your hips. This disc bears the weight and force imposed by movement.
Was the surgery a success? In 2019, Tiger Woods won his fifth 2019 Masters Tournament championship!
Following the surgery, Tiger Woods teamed up with Centinel Spine to educate the public on how spinal devices can help return normal back functioning with minimally invasive procedures.
PEEK technology produces strong, flexible spinal cages used in intervertebral implant procedures. Conditions treated include degenerative spinal conditions and injuries such as spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, and lateral stenosis.
