Raymond Eugene Moore, Spinal Kyphoplasty Surgery

Raymond Eugene Moore, “Gene”, and his wife Louise were enjoying a quiet retirement in Lyons, Georgia, when a seemingly small mishap caused an injury to Gene’s spine. Last fall, a large limb fell from a pecan tree in their yard, and 80-year-old Gene didn’t think twice about what to do next. Louise jokes that he was quick to be the “hero”, grabbing the chainsaw and cutting the limb into pieces and removing them from the yard. Two days later, Gene noticed his back was sore, so he went to his primary care doctor, who referred him to Optim’s Dr. John McCormick.

Gene’s MRI revealed a fracture in the L4 vertebrae. His first option was an epidural injection, which helped relieve some of his pain, but he still felt a pulling sensation in his legs caused by pressure on his sciatic nerve.  Read More


Skip Milton, Lumbar Compression & Stabilization

Skip Milton is a troubleman for Georgia Power, where he has worked for the past 28 years to repair electric lines and outages. He lives outside of Baxley with his wife and has always enjoyed riding his motorcycle in the area, including to work and on charity rides with his wife. However, a few years ago, Skip was in a motorcycle accident that left him wondering if he’d ever be able to work again.

One night, Skip was riding his motorcycle back from work at the Vidalia headquarters of Georgia Power when he lost control of his motorcycle and drove straight into an oncoming pickup. He was rushed to the Meadows Regional Medical Center emergency room and then transferred to the Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah.  In addition to having all of his teeth knocked out, he had sustained a fractured pelvis, broken jaw and split sacrum.  Read More
