Neil Patrick Harris' Husband David Burtka is Recovering After Spinal Surgery

David Burkta is on the mend after undergoing surgery.

Neil Patrick Harris took to Instagram on Wednesday (February 3) to reveal that the 45-year-old actor and chef is recovering after having spinal surgery.

“David is recovering from spinal surgery. It was fairly intensive, took over seven hours, but he’s in good spirits and doing well,” the 47-year-old actor wrote. “It’s one of the scarier, more hopeless feelings – hoping for the best, trying not to fear the worst, waiting a call with news. Thankfully, all went according to plan. Whew..! Two thumbs up. I love you, @dbelicious. Your strength inspires me. And thanks to NY-Presbyterian Hospital for, well, everything. ❤️❤️🙏🏼 @nyphospital”

Neil then shared a video of David all hyped up on pain medication after the surgery.

“A few hours after surgery. Not sure David will remember saying any of this… but damn, it makes me laugh,” Neil wrote. “I appreciate his positive energy so so much. @dbelicious @nyphospital #morphine.”

We’re glad to hear David is doing ok after surgery!
