I don’t usually post stuff like this, but I think it’s interesting:
“Becker’s Spine Review’s” Shayna Korol offered a little biography of the doctor that is performing Mike Green’s probable discectomy (i.e. removal of the herniated portion of the disc in Green’s neck), Dr. Frank Cammisa:
Dr. Cammisa is the chief emeritus of the spine service at [the Hospital for Special Surgery]. He specializes in minimally invasive spinal surgery, computer-assisted spinal surgery, microsurgery, athletic spinal injuries and motion-preserving procedures, including artificial disc replacement. He serves as the spine consultant for the NHL Players Association.
Back in 2014, Cammisa performed a discectomy on Henrik Zetterberg.
