Emory’s Approach to Treating Your Orthopedic Issues, Spine Injuries and Sports Injuries

Your bones, joints and spine are at the core of every movement. An injury or illness in any of these areas can disrupt your routine and lead to a less active lifestyle.

Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center offers a full range of services to diagnose, treat and repair bones, joints and connective tissue, like muscles and tendons. From non-surgical treatments to surgical options, including spine surgery and total joint replacement, our goal is to help you return to a full and active lifestyle or work with you to develop strategies to improve your health.
