Lorraine's Story

“Before I knew what happened, I had been bucked from my horse and was lying in the dirt. I knew immediately that I was seriously injured.”

Upon learning that her L1 vertebrae had exploded on impact, Lorraine was taken into surgery two days later with Dr. Shakeel Durrani.

“I felt fortunate to have a spine expert here locally. Hearing that you might not walk again is an emotional experience. I received exceptional care and am grateful to Randolph Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine for getting me back up and riding again.”

Dr. Shakeel Durrani excels at both surgical and non-surgical techniques to alleviate back and neck pain. Lorraine’s access to her health team is a testament to her recovery. Learn more about our back and neck care and orthopedic services available right here in Randolph County.

“I'm now ready and riding again without pain.”
