Specialized Orthopedic Care When You Need it Most

From arthritis to whiplash, broken bones to total knee replacement, our highly-trained orthopedic teams will partner with you to restore your function, mobility and quality of life. Our comprehensive orthopedic services include:

Advanced Surgical Techniques for Optimal Recovery 

For those times when non-surgical methods are not appropriate or practical, our orthopedic specialists offer an array of surgical interventions. Our orthopedic surgeons have access to the most up to date surgical techniques and technologies that enable exceptional outcomes and quicker recovery times. Many of our minimally invasive procedures can limit pain and blood loss, reduce the chances of scarring, improve bone retention and speed recovery. Many patients who undergo minimally invasive surgery are back on their feet the day after the procedure.  Some of the surgical options we offer include:

  • Arthroscopy: a minimally invasive procedure used to visualize, diagnose and treat joint problems 
  • Soft tissue repair: addresses torn ligaments and tendons
  • Total and partial joint replacement: where a damaged joint is replaced with a new joint
  • Revision joint surgery: when a preexisting joint implant is replaced
  • Bone fracture repair: where complex broken bones are repositioned using metal plates, screws or pins
  • Spine fusion: where spinal bones (vertebrae) are joined together

Gwinnett Medical Center Emergency Services for Traumatic Injuries 

Traumatic orthopedic injuries can range from single fractures to multiple, life-threatening musculoskeletal injuries. In many cases, the care you receive in the minutes, hours and days after an injury can mean the difference between faster recovery times and a prolonged recuperation period. Our specialized orthopedic teams use cutting-edge techniques for traumatic orthopedic injuries, which often result in faster recovery times for patients and less pain. We work closely with colleagues from other specialties to make sure you receive the comprehensive care you need in an emergency.
