Resurgens Orthopaedics Patient Is 'Bionic Man' Following Four Successful Surgeries
Canton's Robert Dawson Praises Resurgens Doctors For 'The Best Care I Could Ever Have Expected' Calling himself a "bionic man," Bob Dawson says he needs physician-issued cards to allow him and his metal knees through airport security checks. But the range of motion in his shoulder is much better than he ever expected, and all his joint replacements are working well. Mr. Dawson, 70, can't say enough good things about the doctors at Resurgens, who have performed four surgeries on him over the past several years. First it was spine surgery in the mid-1990s, then his left knee replacement in 2006, followed by his right knee replacement in 2008. Then,... Continue Reading

Finishing the Peachtree Road Race After Dual Knee Replacement
In 2013, Mark Warr found himself overweight, suffering from arthritis in his knees, and being forced to use a walker to get around. “Using a walker was embarrassing for me. It was demoralizing.

Advances in technology in implants can be life-changing, according to longtime athlete Glenn Sikes. "I pretty much had knee problems even through high school. I didn't have my surgery until I got to college," Sikes said. Ten years later, torn cartilage required more frequent surgeries on Sikes' knees. The... Continue Reading

Conquering Mt. Everest After Hip Replacement
For Malcolm Aga, athletics, adventure, and traveling were part of his lifestyle since he was a child. At age 59, hip problems prevented him from crossing the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek off his bucket list. He then decided he wasn’t going to let anything stand in his way. First, a few details about the Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek: Hikers land at Lukla airport in Nepal, a harrowing journey in its own right. Often dubbed ‘the world’s most dangerous airport’ because high winds, turbulence, and rough terrain can make for an exceptionally difficult landing. Upon landing, trekkers have time for little more than a quick stop at one of the... Continue Reading
