I was unsure if I could walk again, let alone play sports. I couldn’t put any weight on my foot for a month and had to trust the process to slowly regain mobility and strength. Thanks to Dr. Norman Waldrop, his staff, and physical therapists, what was supposed to be a year-long recovery, was only eight months. I am thankful to Dr. Waldrop, who stepped up in a high-pressure emergency and got me back healthy and to competing quickly and safely.

I was born with bad bilateral bunions on both feet. It was very severe and caused my big toes to point towards my pinky toes. We are very good friends of Dr. Emily Bell Casey and she had seen me for the past 4 years about this issue. She monitored the growth plates and wanted to make sure they were closed before referring me for surgery.

In January 2015, which was my junior year in high school (Veterans High, Kathleen, GA), I was being recruited by some colleges to play college baseball. My dream was to play baseball as long as I could, and college was my next step. I was long tossing with some friends getting ready for my junior season when I felt a pop and heard a snap in my right elbow.

Leading up to my appointment with Dr. Andrew Cordover, I was having problems walking and holding things in my hands. I thought my problems were age related to arthritis. Instead, I had a bruised spinal cord and arthritis in my neck that was pinching nerves.

My story begins in my early 50's when I began to have left hip pain. I sought conservative treatment that included physical therapy and injections. It did not take me long to realize the injections only helped for a short period of time. After receiving my last injection, with absolutely no pain relief, I knew I had to seek a permanent solution.
