More than one.

Many of my friends have complained of back pains and when I lived in Florida I remember one who had surgery.   The outcome?   To the best of my memory, he wasn’t too happy.

That was long before laser spine surgery was available.  I have heard it’s less evasive than conventional surgery, but I haven’t met anyone who has had it. I wonder if it would help me? I wonder if it would give a spline-less person a new spine? I wonder if you have to wear protective goggles during the operation?
