    "The Resurgens team was so wonderful during the entire process."

    Fayette County teacher sings praise of Dr. Maurice Goins, Resurgens staff after successful scoliosis correction surgery

    Jessi Harper, 37, has deep roots in the Fayette, Georgia community she currently calls home. After growing up in the area, Jessi began teaching at the local Inman Elementary School 14 years ago. Today, she is still teaching at Inman Elementary, now along side her husband, Charlie, as they raise their two children. Unfortunately, Jessi’s history with back problems runs just as deep as her community ties, as she was diagnosed with scoliosis — a condition in which the spine curves abnormally sideways — in her teenage years. “Back then it really wasn’t too bad, and we had no idea it could progress so seriously,” said Jessi. “In fact, it...

    Dr. Maurice Goins Performs First-of-its-Kind Spinal Surgery in Georgia

    Dr. Maurice Goins, a spine surgeon at Resurgens Orthopaedics, recently performed the first-of-its-kind spinal surgery with a new artificial disc in Georgia. The patient, Rashad Hodge, a former U.S. Army officer, is doing extremely well.  The surgery involved the Mobi-C Cervical Disc Prosthesis, a newly FDA-approved device for cervical artificial disc replacement.  Hodge, a West Point Military Academy graduate and former U.S. Army officer, is a very active and health conscious individual and wanted to maintain his usual high level of physical fitness after surgery. Dr. Goins felt he was the perfect candidate for the Mobi-C.  The disc is notable because it preserves... Continue Reading

    Mike Dunham Credits His Recovery to the Rapid Response and Surgery by Resurgens Spine Surgeon Dr. Maurice L. Goins

    Resurgens Orthopaedics Patient Returns to Golf After Suffering a Spinal Abscess

    When Mike Dunham looks back on 2009, he talks about how his wife Debbie "is the true hero" who stepped up to make sure he got the best healthcare possible, "when I fell asleep last summer." Dunham's experience was more than a long summer's nap. Dunham, 53, a patient of Dr. Maurice L. Goins at the Resurgens Orthopaedics Fayetteville office, suffered an abscess on his spine that resulted in rapid paralysis and required emergency surgery. He remained in a coma for 21 days before waking up and moving to Atlanta's Shepherd Spinal Center for rehabilitation. Now, a year later, Dunham is back to his normal 65-hour weeks as...

    Vincent's Disk Replacement Success Story!

    Vincent Giordano was on a mission trip in Haiti playing with children in an orphanage when he felt a sharp pain in his neck radiating down his left arm. His neck pain was so severe it couldn’t be relieved with powerful medications, ice, heat, or traction. He hadn’t slept in two days to due to the constant aching and stabbing pain.  The pain was even worse when he tried to sit or walk and also caused  60% a significant loss of arm strength. Vincent said; "I was in excruciating pain. I have never experienced pain like this in my life.” Vincent was first seen by Dr. Goins’ PA, Rowland Spencer and was diagnosed with cervical disc degeneration and... Continue Reading

    Drumming After Disc Replacement

    The rock and roll lifestyle is one many people aspire to live, but for Atlanta-area drummer James Lamar, it was the only life he ever knew since he was a child.  When a neck injury threatened his ability to play the music he loves, he refused to take it sitting down.  He decided to take action, and the talented staff at Resurgens Orthopaedics had him back and rocking out in no time. As the child of a musical family, perhaps James was destined to become a drummer.  After all, his father was a guitarist who hoped to pass his love of music on to his children.  He even bought a drum set for James’s older brothers to play; unfortunately, they didn’t show...

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

Dr. Goins is one of the best physicians I've ever had. He performed Disc Replacement surgery, C5-6 for me. He was so patient explaining what my issues were, what the MRI showed, what his course of action would be. My wife and I were IMMEDIATELY comfortable with him after spending only 10 minutes with him. His demeanor, personality, and skill level were superb. Post -surgery, I am pain free for the first time in over 20 years!! Every thing about Dr. Goins is A+++ in my opinion.
