Americans are enjoying longer, more active lives than at any time in history. However, as we age, our bodies change, and a lifetime of activity and occasional abuse takes its toll on everyone. Sometimes those changes result in specific problems related to joints and muscles. Painful, stiff joints can become lifestyle altering and prevent many individuals from participating in the daily activities they enjoy.
At Tanner Ortho and Spine Center, we have partnered with the physicians at Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic, who will use their clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from joint pain or discomfort.
The physicians at Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic understand that taking care of a severely injured or diseased joint is more than applying state-of-the-art surgical techniques. It is the skilled, hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing that determines the best overall plan of orthopedic care. It is their practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, if and when a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, these skilled orthopedic surgeons have the ability to replace all major joints at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and perform other orthopedic surgeries at Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica or Higgins General Hospital in Bremen.
Tanner Ortho and Spine joint replacements include:
- Hip replacement
- Knee replacement
- Shoulder replacement
Our unique continuum of care approach produces outstanding clinical and patient satisfaction results. This integrated approach enables our clinical team to properly evaluate a patient’s condition and prepare each patient mentally and physically for their procedure; then we continuously monitor and manage their entire pre- and postsurgical performance and progress. This full-service approach, which integrates the patient’s primary care physician and orthopedic surgeon with a host of clinical support staff, is designed to return our patients to maximum function as quickly and safely as possible.
