Approach to treating patients

North DeKalb Orthopedics is truly a multi-subspecialty orthopedic center. We provide all orthopaedic services including: diagnosis, patient education, treatment and coordination of rehabilitation at our facility. Orthopaedically trained and licensed radiology technicians supply our physicians with superior quality X-Rays. This benefits the patient by providing the patient with immediate review of your X-rays by your physician. Neurologic testing for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is now also done on our premises. For patient education, we make generous use of models, brochures and videos, as we strive to have our patients well informed about their condition, their options for management, what procedures are required, what the outcome is expected to be, and what the result actually is. We believe that the first step towards recovery is education, and our job is to educate first, and then do our best to achieve the desired goal.

Our physicians frequently attend orthopaedic meetings and seminars, which keep them abreast of the newest and most effective means of diagnosis and treatment. We strive for a rapid return to full function, by using either medications, physical therapy, injections, bracing/immobilization, and when necessary surgery.

Many of our surgical procedures are done on an outpatient basis, with a large bulk of the outpatient surgery involving arthroscopy. We make use of the facilities at DeKalb Medical Center, Decatur Hospital, and Emory-Northlake Regional Medical Center. When required for more extensive procedures such as joint replacement, our patients usually stay for a few days, at DeKalb Medical Center. With the aid of the Arthritis Care Center, discharge coordinators and DeKalb's inpatient rehabilitation unit, the postoperative care is extremely well coordinated.
