A combination of scoliosis, a motorcycle accident, and years of sports-related injuries resulted in a lifetime of chronic back pain for Marc. "I couldn't ride a motorcycle or play a round of golf or play with my grandchild," said Marc. After consulting with numerous doctors, the active 65-year-old opted for back surgery. Marc's surgeon prescribed the Firebird® Deformity Correction System to correct the spine curvature and fixate the affected portion of the spine. Marc's surgeon also inserted donated human allogenic bone graft material called Trinity ELITE®, which helped facilitate the bone fusion process.
Today, Marc is back playing golf and volunteering with Wounded Warriors, and happily declares he's "no longer in pain." To learn more about Marc's story, watch his video here:
