Golfers Get Back to Play after Spinal Surgery

July 26, 2016

Golfers need not be afraid of getting back onto the course after spinal surgery. Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush minimally invasive spine surgeon Dr. Kern Singh is heading a research team that is studying just how quickly spine patients can return to playing golf.

In this ABC7 Chicago story, Dr. Singh's patient, Mike Rude, explains how his golf game is back on course following his spinal fusion surgery. Dr. Kern discusses the study's goal and its use of 3-D video analysis of the participants' swing.
