The Cut - - WORLD NEWS -

Tiger Woods has gone back un­der the knife, un­der­go­ing a sec­ond mi­crodis­cec­tomy — the same pro­ce­dure he un­der­went in March 2014 — on his back.

Neu­ro­sur­geon Dr Charles Rich, who per­formed the op­er­a­tion, said, “With the up­com­ing off­sea­son, the de­ci­sion was made to re­move a small disc frag­ment that was pinch­ing his nerve. The mi­cro­surgery was a com­plete suc­cess.”

Ac­cord­ing to in­for­ma­tion posted on his web­site: “Woods will be­gin in­ten­sive re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and soft tis­sue treat­ment within a week.”
