Centinel Spine and Tiger Woods

Partnership to Include Video Filming of Tiger Woods' Recovery from Back Pain

Today Centinel Spine®, LLC, the largest privately-held spine company focused on anterior column reconstruction, announced the planned February filming of a three to four-minute video detailing the story behind 15-Time PGA Tour Majors Winner Tiger Woods’ remarkable recovery from incapacitating back pain—and his successful spinal fusion surgery through the support of the company’s technology. Centinel Spine will also be presenting the perspective of his surgical team to give a fuller picture of this incredible story—all told through the lens of Emmy-nominated director Kevin Foley. This will serve as both education and inspiration to all those affected by spinal disease.

Tiger Woods underwent spinal fusion surgery using the Centinel Spine STALIF M-Ti product in April 2017 to alleviate ongoing, debilitating pain in his back and legs. The Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) surgery using the Centinel Spine technology was so successful that it allowed Tiger to complete his PGA Tour comeback after almost three years of golf inactivity, culminating with his April 2019 win at the 83rd Masters and a record-tying 82nd PGA career win at the Zozo Championship in October 2019.

According to Tiger Woods, “The level of expertise and care I received from my medical team and Centinel Spine throughout this medical journey was unparalleled and an integral part of my return to the course. I hope this piece will be able to help people suffering through some of the same pain issues and feel positive about finding a lasting solution.”

“The goal of our partnership with Tiger Woods is to educate a broader patient population that surgical procedures and technologies exist that allow individuals to continue to function at a high level—even after major spine surgery,” said Centinel Spine Chairman & CEO John Viscogliosi. “This will be an authentic account of Tiger’s patient journey from the point of view of an individual suffering from the life-altering effects of back or neck pain.  We look forward to our continued work with Tiger to better support and educate individuals suffering from pain and discomfort.”

The video will be released by mid-year 2020 through the rediscover (http://www.rediscovermylife.org/) spine patient online platform and other various online video mediums.
