Guy Bell: Baylor Scott & White Health was my second opinion but first choice for spine surgery.

Guy Bell knew he had to do something about his back, but he wasn't ready to give up cattle roping. "I had two vertebrae that were causing a lot of nerve pain." A surgeon near his West Texas home suggested a fusion procedure that would end his days in the saddle. That's when he turned to Baylor Scott & White. "I asked the orthopedic surgeon for an alternative to spinal fusion, and he came up with a plan." The procedure, done through a small incision, used artificial material to create cushions between the affected vertebrae. A day after surgery, Guy's wife drove him home. "I was back to roping in no time with no nerve pain."
