Jerome Bettis, XLIF® patient and Company ambassador, participated in Super Bowl LIV’s Radio Row last week in Miami, Florida.
Every year, Radio Row brings together national media and major sports news networks to cover the activities prior to the Super Bowl. Media stations have the opportunity to interview top NFL players in anticipation of the biggest football game of the year.
Jerome was interviewed by networks including NBC, CBS, and Fox Sports and shows including the Dan Patrick Show and Rich Eisen Show. He shared his story and experience with NuVasive’s XLIF procedure.
Toward the end of his pro football career, Jerome started experiencing back pain. Approximately one year after his symptoms began, the persistent pain prompted his search to find the right surgeon to perform the best procedure. He eventually found Dr. Juan Uribe, currently the Chief of Spinal Disorders with Barrow Neurological Institute, and decided to move forward with the XLIF procedure.
Three months following the surgery, he was able to return to an active lifestyle he envisioned when entering retirement.
“I want to share my story and encourage considering patients to take the leap and get their life back.”– Jerome Bettis
