Colombian Athlete Wins Gold in Rio Olympics – Disc-FX

Oscar Albeiro Figueroa Mosquera, an Olympic athlete from Colombia, had issues with back pain due to a lumbar hernia. After much thought and consideration, the athlete decided that it was time to stop his pain and get back in motion. Dr. Jorge Felipe Ramirez, a pioneer in endoscopic minimally invasive surgery in Latin America, performed the Disc-FX procedure on Olympian Oscar Figueroa. After his recovery, Oscar Figueroa had achieved the ultimate victory by achieving the gold medal at the Rio Olympics on August 8th, 2016. When receiving the medal, he personally thanks Dr. Ramirez for allowing him to continue what he loves to do. “Doctor Ramirez, you know that this medal is also yours” was stated by Oscar Figueroa when he gave his speech.
