The “Little House on the Prairie” star detailed the procedure on Instagram.
Actress Melissa Gilbert was all smiles after her “wildly successful” spinal surgery.
The 56-year-old television star, who has battled with neck and back injuries since 2001, shared a photo on Instagram with a caption explaining the procedure.
“Surgery was wildly successful! Dr. Bray was able to remove all the old hardware, shave off bone spurs causing numbness in my right hand and, and, and, he was able to give me the artificial disc,” she wrote. “So now I focus on recovery and remaining Covid free. Thank you all for your love, support and prayers. I send so much love back to you all. Happy Thanksgiving indeed!!! Love and love and love…MG.”
