I was all over the campus, feeling younger than my students.

–Rick Mauldin

A high school baseball coach, Rick Mauldin led his team to more than 500 wins and multiple state championship titles. All of that came to a halt when he started to feel symptoms related to spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease.

Northshore spine surgeon, Dr. K. Samer Shamieh performed a minimally invasive spine surgery and gave him his life back.

Although now retired from coaching Mauldin said of life after surgery, “I was all over the campus, feeling younger than my students.

I felt like I could coach for another 10 years.
