When choosing a physician to treat your arthritis or joint pain, you deserve Atlanta’s best—Arthritis & Total Joint Specialists. We know there are many options, but here are a few of the reasons that ATJS is the one you should call:
- We have assembled the top joint surgeons from across the state. With quality outcomes as the primary goal, this group has pioneered same day hip and knee replacement, typically sending patients home the same day as their surgery. In fact, our patients’ average length of stay is 88% shorter than the national average.
- We prioritize communications with our patients. Open, effective and productive communication between patients and their health care team is key to producing good outcomes. We maintain communication with our surgical patients through Force Therapeutics. With 95% of recovery taking place in the home, communication beyond the traditional four walls of a hospital or practice are important. By leveraging Force’s unique ability to engage patients for an entire episode, providers have the ability to be available at a moment’s notice via the platform.
- We have established best practice protocols for optimal outcomes in Joint health—either conservatively or operatively. We want you to succeed, so we have dedicated total joint program educators, physical therapists and nutritional services to aid you in your journey.
- We minimize the use of opioids. Our surgeons and anesthesiologists are experts in employing a variety of pain-management treatments, including multimodal approaches that combine non-opioid pain medications with therapies such as nerve blocks. When possible, our clinicians seek to reduce or eliminate patients’ exposure to opioid pain medications before and after surgery.
