    Media Local Actor Praises Dr. Paul Jeffords for “First-Class” Spine Care

    If the name Brian Durkin sounds familiar, it’s probably because you’ve heard it associated with recent big-screen blockbusters like The Internship and Anchor Man 2. Durkin has worked as an actor in the entertainment industry here in Atlanta since 2001, often playing very physically involved roles like military officials and police officers. “I’ve always loved doing my own stunts,” said Durkin of these positions. “But looking back now, I probably should have let the stunt-men step in more than I did.” Off set, Durkin maintains these physical abilities through CrossFit training, triathlon preparation, and more recreational sporting...

    Olympic Athlete Praises Resurgens for High Level, Elite Care

    Team Handball Star Recovers Successfully From Spinal Fusion Surgery at Resurgens Orthopaedics After years of competitive athletics, including 14 years on the U.S. National Handball Team, injuries from an auto accident led Darrick Heath toResurgens Orthopaedics for spine surgery.  The 1996 Olympian led the U.S. handball team in assists and was second in scoring at the Atlanta Games. He suffered a fractured vertebra in his lower back in 2003 in an auto accident.  “At that point, I didn’t get any invasive work done to treat it,” he said. After failing to qualify for the 2004 Games in Greece, he retired from competition and moved to... Continue Reading

    Larry Castillo Credits 16 Orthopaedic Surgeries With Allowing Him To Continue to Win Canoe Races At the age of 66, competitive canoe racer Laurens (Larry) Castillo counts a total of 16 surgeries since he started white water canoeing more than two decades ago. First his knees, then his shoulders, and finally his back required orthopaedic surgery. This fall, a year after hip replacement at Resurgens Orthopaedics, the Kennesaw resident won first place in the 29-mile Suwannee River canoe race in Florida and fourth place in the amateur class in the highly competitive 90-mile Adirondack Classic in New York State. In both races, he competed with men of all ages. Without the surgeries,... Continue Reading

  • Laura Alvis

    "As a nurse, I probably did more research to find a doctor than a lot of people would"

    Disc Replacement Surgery Allows Resurgens Orthopaedics Patient to Start a Family

    After a Decade of Chronic Pain, Laura Alvis Now Lifts and Carries Her Daughter with Ease Starting a family was not an option for 32-year-old Resurgens Orthopaedics Spine Center patient Laura Alvis. Pain from degenerative disc disease prevented her from even considering pregnancy. However, after her January 2007 disc replacement surgery at Resurgens Orthopaedics, Mrs. Alvis gave birth to a daughter in July 2008, and both baby Sarah and mother are doing fine. "I never had a problem with my back during my pregnancy," Mrs. Alvis said. "The whole pregnancy and delivery went very well, but I couldn't have done it without first having the surgery." Mrs. Alvis... Continue Reading
