Dr. Hoffman is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon Fellowship Trained in Total Joints specializing in surgery of the hip and knee. A native of Warner Robins, he graduated cum laude from the University of Georgia and obtained his medical degree from Mercer University School of Medicine in Macon, Georgia. He completed his Adult Reconstruction Fellowship at Emory University. Dr. Hoffman is specialty trained in the newest techniques of minimally-invasive hip and knee replacement surgery, including partial joint replacement, alternative bearing surfaces, and robotic surgery.
As the region’s first and only fellowship trained total joint specialist, Dr. Hoffman is excited to bring extensive training in the minimally-invasive anterior total hip arthroplasty. The muscle sparing approach allows the surgeon to replace the hip from a small incision on the front of the hip as opposed to the side or back of the hip. Since no muscles are removed from the bone, the patient experiences a less painful and faster recovery after hip replacement without the need for “hip precautions.”
Dr. Hoffman shares, “my mission is to help improve the quality of life of patients suffering from hip and knee arthritis. I am educating the public and patients that total joint replacements aren’t just for “older” patients anymore. The direct anterior hip approach and other minimally invasive surgeries allow patients to go home the same day and require less pain medication.”
