Laser Spine Institute Makes Largest Ever Medical Donation to Gridiron Greats
More than $1 Million donation will help NFL legends alleviate chronic spinal pain through minimally-invasive spine surgery
LSI is proud to announce a $1 million gift has been given to the medical program of the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund. Gridiron Greats is a charitable organization which provides financial aid, social and medical services to former NFL players in crisis. LSI’s donation will benefit retired players suffering from chronic back and neck pain.
Chief spine surgeon Dr. James St. Louis explains, "We are thrilled and excited to offer much-needed surgeries to some of the NFL's greatest players. While they may not be actively playing anymore, we feel it is still vitally important for these players to be able to live out their retirement without suffering from chronic pain."Gridiron Greats Board Member and legendary coach Mike Ditka agrees, "These players gave the best years of their lives to the game, and deserve the highest level of continuing medical care and assistance that we can provide them with. Thanks to the generosity and expertise of LSI, the Gridiron Greats will now be able to help many former players who are in desperate need of medical care. We want to extend a huge thank you to LSI for donating such important services to the Gridiron Greats medical program."
Spine-related pain is one of the leading medical issues for NFL players, yet no post-career care for neck or back pain has been offered. LSI is offering retired NFL players in need of surgery an opportunity for a minimally invasive procedure.
Former patient and CEO of LSI Bill Horne says, "As someone who sustained an injury after playing one year of college football which has caused a lifetime of pain, I can only imagine what these retired NFL players are experiencing after decades playing the sport. This cause is close to our hearts, and we are genuinely thrilled about the opportunity to bring relief to these former players."
