    Local Triathlete Returns to Resurgens After Devastating Bike Accident, Makes Full Recovery

    Jerry Lambert, 57, of Dunwoody, Georgia, is a regular competitor in triathlons across the southeast.  Not much holds him back from his active lifestyle, thanks to the care of Resurgens’ physicians and overseeing injuries over the years.  Even after recovering from a broken clavicle, Lambert resumed competing in triathlons just months after surgery.  During a morning bike ride in the spring of 2014, on a trail near Amelia Island, Florida, Lambert was in a serious biking accident involving a collision with another biker on the trail.  After x-rays taken at the local hospital revealed a severe fracture of his clavicle, doctors urged Lambert to see a specialist...

    Resurgens Orthopaedics Patient Returns to Active Lifestyle After 10 Years of Suffering

    After intensifying shoulder pain made daily activities like adjusting the rearview mirror in his car an excruciating task, Atlanta resident Kurt Morris doubted that he could return to the very active lifestyle he once enjoyed as a lifelong sports and exercise enthusiast. Since undergoing a successful humeral head resurfacing surgery performed by Resurgens Orthopaedics surgeon Dr. Evander Fogle, Morris is back in action, defying even his own expectations.  Morris’ passion for healthy and active living was evident from an early age.  He maintained a regular schedule of workouts and recreational sports activities as he started a family and began a career in the banking...

    Dr. Fogle’s communication skills and attention to detail were exemplary.

    Cyclist Bobby Green "back to doing everything" he hoped to do after multiple surgeries

    Bobby Green may have preferred a visit from Santa this past Christmas instead of a visit to the ER, but he did get a great gift nonetheless — a surgically repaired clavicle from Resurgens Orthopaedics surgeon Dr. Evander Fogle and a return to his bike.  After recovering from a broken elbow sustained in November 2012, Green, an avid road cyclist, was itching to get back on his bike and get out on the Silver Comet Trail. Mission accomplished, and then mission derailed. On his first day back in the saddle, he had a major accident and broke his clavicle. It was the Saturday before Christmas, and the Resurgens offices were closed, but they were able to get an... Continue Reading

A lifelong mountain biker, he credits Resurgens Orthopaedics—the largest orthopaedics practice in Georgia—with not only keeping him on the bike, but allowing him to still ride at such a high level.  Callahan underwent two procedures at Resurgens with two different doctors: Dr. Erroll Bailey performed his Achilles repair and Dr. Evander...

    Physical Therapy Allowed Resurgens Orthopaedics Patient To Postpone and Perhaps Avoid Rotator Cuff Surgery

    Lisa Maggart Wins Third Place in ‘What Does Resurgenize Mean to You' Contest Lisa Maggart of Norcross had just started a new job when she woke up one morning unable to lift her right arm more than three inches from her side. In excruciating pain, she went to an orthopaedist who recommended surgery immediately.  Knowing that recovery time after rotator cuff surgery would cause her to lose her job, she sought a second opinion from Dr. Evander Fogle at Resurgens Orthopaedics.  Maggart submitted her story to Resurgens' recent “What Does Resurgenize Mean To You” contest and was recognized as a winner by Scott Slade on Atlanta's...

    Dry Needling Returns Athlete to Competition

    ­­Adriana is one of our most active patients; at age 64 she loves open-water long-distance swimming, competing in global triathlons, and teaching Pilates and water-aerobics in Metro-Atlanta. While competing in the 2013 World Triathlon Championships in London Adriana crashed while cycling and broke her collarbone.  Upon her return to the States, she saw Dr. Fogle who helped her get back to competing without surgery. In July of 2016 her shoulder developed shoulder impingement syndrome, a very painful condition caused by inflammation from repetitive shoulder activities . The pain was so severe she couldn’t lift her arm for everyday tasks, let alone swim, train, or... Continue Reading

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

I would recommend Dr Fogle to anyone. He repaired my rotator cuff. The MRI indicated an 80% tear, the actual surgery reveal a 100% tear. Dr. Fogel said it was one of the worst he had seen. Of course I had heard horror stories about this surgery and expected a difficult recovery. To my great surprise the first day of PT began with range of motion at 176 out of 180 degrees. The recovery and PT was quite easy. I attribute that to Dr Fogel's great skill and dedication. Thank you Dr. Fogel!!

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

I have been going to Dr. Fogle for about 5 years now. I finally had my shoulder surgery it went perfect. Very few doctors I trust like I do Dr Fogel. I would recommend him to any and all that are in the market for an incredible doctor. His staff is courteous knowledgeable and will go out of their way for you, that is very hard to find these days.
