David Howard, President of Dabora, Inc., is recovering from back surgery at his Shelbyville home following a six day stay at the Williamson County Medical Center in Franklin, Tenn. This is Howard's third back surgery in the last 13 months.

This surgery was a lumbar fusion at the L3-4 and L4-5 levels. The seven hour surgery went as expected and doctors are hopeful he will make a full recovery. Howard is expected to be confined to home for 30 days and will undergo rehab and recovery for 6 to 9 months.
