Ruby Rose is recovering from an emergency surgery which corrected two herniated discs near her spinal cord. The actress injured herself on the set of the CW's "Batgirl," but will be fully able to return to the show and to stuntwork, according to her surgeon.

On YouTube, Rose posted a video interview with her Dr. Bray, who explained the surgery as such: "We cleaned everything up and put in two artificial discs in, so she'll have pieces that will twist, turn, bend and move like a disc, and will regain full range of motion," according to People.com. "She can go back to stunts and workouts, and most importantly now she's safe."

Rose also posted a video of the actual surgery to her Instagram, which is posted below. Watch at your own risk; graphic content warning.

The star, 33, said in her caption: "To everyone asking about my new Pez dispenser scar on my neck... A couple of months ago I was told I needed an emergency surgery or I was risking becoming paralyzed... I had herniated two discs doing stunts, and they were close to severing my spinal cord. I was in chronic pain and yet couldn't feel my arms... Thank you, Dr Bray, for everything you did and for allowing me to keep working and doing what I love. I am forever in your debt. And to anyone asking why I let them video it.. Did you not watch that Grey's Anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient?? Also, I wanted to see what happens when we go under."

"Rose is set to debut as "Batwoman" in The CW series which premieres on October 6,"
