Does anyone know of an Orthopeadic Surgeon in Atlanta Ga. Area

Posted by Jean W on 7/28/00 at 14:29 (024177)

Hi could use help finding an Orthopeadic Surgeon in the Atlanta Ga. area. I had heel spurs removed from both feet on June 15, 2000, and as of today they are not any better then they were before the surgery. I am currently on workers compensation for the heel spurs and I am moving from Las Vegas to Ga and need a doctor in the Atlanta Area who will give me follow-up care who will work with workers compensation insurance. Any help will be greatly appreciated Thanks Jean.

I have a Gov. Book called 'Top Doctors' It lists Drs in every state
voted by their peers as good. There are several listed for Atlanta
but I do not know them personally nor do I know if they have taken
extra coursen in foot and ankle surgery.
The ones with the highest votes are:

Dr. John Garrett
Grad of Columbia U
5671 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd Ne # 900
Atlanta
404 -847-9999

Dr. William Schmitt
Grad Emjory U
575 Professional Dr. #130
Lawrenceville 770-321-9900
1901 Century Blvd. NE # 20 Atlanta
404 321-9900
Must have two offices
If they don't work on feet they could refer you to one.

Also there is a top notch OB/Gyn there Dr. Thomas Lyons who might
be able to give you a referal to someone great. Dr. Lyons is known
around the world and extremely well published. Wonderful man.
Another one is Dr. William Saye in Marietta GA. Also known round
the world and could provide referal I sure

If you want a very well know podiatry group. There is a group called peachtree podiatry in Atlantic Georgia. They run a four year surgical residency in foot and ankle surgery etc. One of my associates trained there twelve years ago. It is one of the only four year program in the country for just foot and ankle. May be worth to take a look.
