First-Class Orthopaedic Surgical Care in Central Georgia
OrthoGeorgia believes in delivering the highest level of quality care to our patients. Our surgical facilities are no exception.

Our patients can be confident that a network of specialized healthcare professionals are always available before, during, and after surgery to help them with their every need. Employees are carefully hand picked for their expertise, professionalism, and personable approach to our patients and their families to ensure an exceptional experience.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you.

OrthoGeorgia Surgery Center provides the latest in Robotic technology using Stryker’s Mako Robot.
The Stryker/Mako Robotic System is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed by providing each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy.
Mako Total Knee, Partial Knee & Hip are the future of orthopaedics.
- Mako Smart Robotics transforms the way total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements are performed.
- Using a virtual 3D model, the Mako System allows surgeons to create each patient’s surgical plan pre-operatively before entering the operating room.
- During surgery, the surgeon can validate that plan and make any necessary adjustments while guiding the robotic-arm to execute that plan.
- It’s exciting to be able to offer this transformative technology across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements.

Nurse Navigators for Total Joint Replacements
Our Nurse Navigator is a Registered Nurse who is assigned to our same-day joint replacement patients. She assists patients from pre-operative evaluation to post-surgery follow-up. If you and your doctor determine you are a candidate for outpatient total joint replacement in one of our surgery centers, our Nurse Navigator will call you to schedule an appointment to discuss everything you can expect with your upcoming surgery. In addition, following your surgery the nurse navigator will remain a resource for you to provide guidance and to help ensure you are recovering successfully at home.
Outpatient Orthopedic Care
OrthoGeorgia offers two facilities for outpatient procedures requiring stays of 23 hours or less. Both ambulatory surgery centers focus on bone, joint, spine, and muscle care and complex surgical procedures including total joint (hip and knee) replacements and spinal operations. Our team of experienced physicians and professional staff is committed to excellence – patients experience superior service, safety, and satisfaction because our physicians are fully involved in every aspect of care. Our goal is to provide first-class surgical services in a safe, welcoming environment, one in which we would be happy to treat our own families, expediting your safe return to a healthy, active, and productive lifestyle.
