Kevin Hart’s Severe Spinal Injury and His Road to Recovery
Kevin Hart, beloved comedian and film superstar, posted an intimate video about his road to recovery following a severe car crash that broke his spine in three different places. “Basically, what you realize is that you’re not in control. No matter how much you think you’re in control, you’re not in control,” Hart says as the nearly two-minute clip begins.
Inside Edition sits with Dr. Jonathan Stieber, Director of the Spine Center at OrthoManhattan, and discusses the severity of Hart’s x-rays.
“There are patients with x-rays like his (Kevin Hart) that are in wheelchairs for the rest of their lives,” Dr. Stieber states as he explains the reasoning behind Kevin Hart’s back brace and the rods that were surgically screwed into his spine to help with stability.
