Tennis Canada announced Monday that the 28-year-old Pospisil had successful surgery in New York City on Friday to repair a herniated disc.

“It’s been a really difficult few months for me, but I’m so fortunate to have had such a great team of doctors around me that made sure I had the very best care,” Pospisil said in a release. “I’ll work hard to get healthy, but I know I need to be patient in my recovery.”

The Vancouver product, ranked No. 74 in the world, injured his back during a second-round qualifying match at the Paris Masters in October.

Pospisil tweeted a photo of himself giving the peace sign from a hospital bed Monday afternoon with the caption: “Quite the roller coaster ride the last 3 months but glad to finally start putting it behind me.”
