"We should tone it down a little bit as we get older but to give up on life dreams and goals is the worst thing a person can do for their mental and physical health," says Dr. Robert Masson.
Dr. Masson, Founder of Masson Spine Institute and Medical Director for Team Growing Bolder, constantly pushes himself and the results have included building a globally renowned Center of Excellence for complex spine surgery and pushing his industry forward in the creation and adoption of new technologies that dramatically improve patient experience and outcome. He's also a spine surgery patient himself who has achieved extreme recovery to lead an active and adventureous life that includes climbing mountains, snow and waterskiing and most recently, racing prototypes on the professional sports car circuit.
