Lolo Jones - PortraitDr. Robert S. Bray Jr., neurological spine surgeon discusses the role and importance of the operating microscope in Lolo Jones’ minimally invasive spine surgery.

In August 2011, Lolo Jones underwent spinal surgery at DISC for a tethered spinal cord after experiencing symptoms like difficulty feeling her feet and excruciating back pain. It all began after she tripped on a hurdle during the 100 m event in the Beijing Olympics.  Dr. Bray diagnosed Jones with the syndrome and performed the surgery. Six months later, Jones won first place at the US Open of Track & Field.

Jones also participated in the 2012 London Olympics, placing fourth in the 100 m Hurdles Final. Jones has also competed in bobsledding competitions in 2013.
