Outpatient Surgery Center

When surgery may be needed, our Medicare approved, state licensed ambulatory surgical center is just steps away in Building A. The Center for Orthopedic Surgery (permit # 008-151) is owned and operated by the physicians of Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons, P.C.     

What to Expect

Since it’s opening in 1998, our board certified orthopedic physicians have been performing outpatient procedures in the center. They are supported by a skilled medical team led by Surgery Center Manager, Teresa Garland, RN. Her team includes ACLS certified registered nurses, licensed scrub technicians, and courteous administrative team members. Your Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons' physician and surgical support team are dedicated to ensuring your safety and comfort at every step of your visit with us.  Not all patients are suitable for ambulatory surgery and may need, or prefer, a hospital environment.  In that event, our surgeons have privileges at Cartersville Medical Center, Gordon Hospital, Northside Cherokee,  and Piedmont Mountainside Hospital.  


The Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons' Center for Orthopedic Surgery is state certified by the Georgia Department of Community Health and Medicare approved. As our patient, you can have confidence knowing the outpatient care you receive meets rigorous standards for safety and quality.   We are required to meet the same standards as most hospital outpatient surgery departments.
