tito_ortiz_back_fused

Tito Ortiz had major surgery to have two vertebrae fused together, this X-Ray shows the extent of the procedure. Hopefully this fixed some of this lingering problems and we can get the old “wining” Tito back. Props: Kom34

  1. Ouch…That had to be painful.

  2. Really quit being an asshole.

  3. If you think "Ouch that had to be painful". Deserved a "no shit moron". Keep it to yourself, instead of calling someone a moron. Saying it makes you look like an asshole.

  4. OK Idiot^

  10. Looks like Tito had two surgeries performed. He had an XLIF (Extreme lateral interbody fusion) at L4-L5 in which a large cage made of plastic was inserted through his left flank. Then a titanium plate with 2 screws were put in for additional support. At L5-S1, he had an AxiaLIF procedure done through a different incision. Here, an incision was made near the coccyx and a large screw was inserted through his sacrum and into his L5 vertebral body. That was supported with Facet screws inserted through 2 smaller incisions on his back. All are minimally invasive and he should have 4-5 smaller scars.

    BK are u a doctor? u seem to know a lot about it. how do u think tito will be after this surgery never the same or new and improved? who would u put ur money on?

  12. I work closely with the surgeons in the OR who perform these operations. I think he will be able to fight without the back pain that he has complained about for some time. These patients take between 6-9 months to heal. Part of Tito's surgery is the same as Nate Quarry's and he came back to fight. But I think it will be the same Tito, a one-dimensional fighter who hasn't evolved his skills to handle the new breed of fighters.

    interesting thanks for the info! i think titos game will improve because wrestling has a lot to do with ur back and core strength and i bet his shot will be a lot better if his back isnt hurting him.

  14. Skermish and tbone are both so fucking stupid…Both of you go back to the dark holes you crawled out of, you trolls.

  15. hahaha, tbone….Looks like some of your dumbass comments were deleted…Youre such a dumb bitch…Thanks Cage for erasing his dumb comments…

  16. dane drebin says:

    ya i like how Cage doesnt censor and delete people for cursing otherwise almost everyone would be banned but Cage always seems to delete the duesche bags

  17. hahaha…Yeah, dane… I think CagE see's all the sh*t he talks here and knows he's a douche. I wonder why he keeps coming here when everyones hates him and is deleting his comments.
