Skyler Moran was ready to hang up his cleats and step away from the lacrosse field for good. Since 4th grade Skyler had been an avid lacrosse player. Skyler’s love and dedication to lacrosse earned him JV Team MVP, 3 Varsity Letters, a Mid-Penn Conference Scholar-Athlete recognition and a commitment to play for Transylvania University’s first lacrosse team.
Shortly after Skyler returned from a recruiting camp in July of 2011 his family started to notice a limp. As the back pain progressively increased Skyler saw three physicians and went through a series of X-rays and scans. After two epidurals, physical therapy, and a steady dose of Aleve, Skyler had made it through the Fall Ball season. As the Spring Season got underway the intensity of the games increased; along with the pain in Skyler’s back. Chuck Moran [Skyler’s Father] sought the advice of Neurosurgeon Chris Kager.
Dr. Kager immediately recommended surgery for disc herniation. Shortly after Skyler underwent a lumber discectomy. It didn’t take long to see the results.
The first minute we were able to see him after his surgery, he told us the pain was gone…He slowly got his life back. He arrived on his college campus in August a new person, who was again excited to play lacrosse. – Chuck Moran
Skyler is studying computer science and is now ready and excited to be a force at midfield and attack for Transylvania University.
