  • Contact the division's office in The Emory Clinic at 404-778-4500.

The following information will expedite the scheduling process:

  • Referral from the primary care physician (if surgery is medically necessary)
  • Treating physician or dentist's name, address and telephone number
  • Patient's name, address, and telephone number
  • Patient's date of birth
  • Patient's social security number
  • Diagnosis and date of diagnosis
  • Insurance information

First Consultation

The initial visit will include an evaluation based on current symptoms or conditions and compilation of a thorough medical history. The patient should bring all medical records related to their diagnosis as well as radiology studies and film from scans. In fact, it is helpful for copies of these items to be reviewed by the surgeon before the scheduled appointment, though not mandatory. If interested in this option, please call 404-778-4500. In coordination with the referring physician, a treatment plan is developed after the initial visit.

Please print a copy of the pre-registration form (PDF, 300Kb), fill in the requested information, and bring it with you to your first appointment.
