Michael J Fox recovering after spinal surgery

"Back to the Future" star Michael J Fox is "feeling great" after he underwent a spinal surgery.

In a statement obtained by Entertainment Weekly, Leslie Sloane, representative of Fox, said the surgery is not connected to his Parkinson's disease.

"Michael J Fox recently underwent spinal surgery unrelated to his Parkinson's. He is recovering, feeling great, and looking forward to getting back on the golf course this summer."

Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's, which can result in body tremors and muscle rigidity, in the early 1990s, though he shared the news seven years later. After this, he set up a foundation to help find a cure for the disease and fund therapies to help people living with Parkinson's.

No further details have been released about his surgery, including when and where it took place.
