Janet Moore – Patient Story

“Dr. Seymour made sure to try everything he could before he had to perform surgery. He made me feel like I was in the best hands because he was not just trying to put me into surgery.” — Janet Moore

Janet has been a patient of Dr. Morris Seymour for years. She has had a few surgeries done by Dr. Seymour, one of which was a spinal fusion. Janet jokes that she has gone through enough surgeries by Dr. Seymour that she should be his poster patient!

Janet loves to spend time with her grandchildren, and also spends many hours in the kitchen whipping up tasty treats. She enjoys baking and loves to share her treats with others. Because Janet encountered a lot of pain with her back, she was unable to do the things she loves most. Once she had enough of the pain, she scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Seymour at TOC.

The first impression Janet experienced with TOC was nothing less than amazing. She was highly pleased with the fact the staff took such good care of her during every visit she makes to the TOC office. Janet was extremely impressed with how caring Dr. Seymour and his team were during her time with them. Janet also loved that they took the time to listen to her concerns about her back pain, and that they explained very clearly what she needed to do to get better so that she could get back into the kitchen baking, and holding her grandchild.

Janet went as long as she could with nonsurgical treatment, but she still struggled with some pain. Since she was not getting rid of her pain completely, she decided to proceed with the spinal fusion procedure.  On the day after her surgery, Janet was able to get out of bed and get moving. She knew that Dr. Seymour wanted her to get up and try to get around, even if it was just a little bit. Determined to recover well, Janet pushed through and was able to walk around the entire hallway. She also recalls that one of the nurses asked if she wanted to try to walk around with a walker, but she was able to answer proudly that she “had already walked without it throughout the hallway.” Because of Dr. Seymour’s excellent skills in surgery, and the hard work Janet has put into her recovery plan, she is doing very well. She says, “I give a lot of the credit to Dr. Seymour. I will always trust Dr. Seymour, and if I ever need spine surgery again, he will be the doctor I will call.”
