Why Choose Us?

Athens Orthopedic Clinic has been providing comprehensive orthopedic care to Athens and the surrounding communities since 1966.

Extensive Training
All of our physicians are fellowship-trained and sub-specialized. In addition to their own ongoing training, our providers frequently educate other doctors, nurses, therapists, trainers, and other community members through seminars, lectures, and articles.

Focus on Patients
We know that musculoskeletal issues can be complicated and confusing. That’s why each of our staff members strives to listen to our patients’ unique needs and concerns. Our doctors, physician’s assistants, and nurses take the time to listen to patients, address their questions about treatment, and if necessary, make sure that they understand all of the aspects of their surgery and recovery plan. Our goal is to pursue all avenues of nonsurgical treatment, only allowing patients to undergo surgery if necessary. Because our doctors are specialists, they are frequently able to treat patients who have had unsuccessful treatment elsewhere.

Commitment to Research
Many of our physicians participate in medical research. Dr. Mahoney has been successful in the development of a revolutionary device used in knee replacement surgery. Dr. Shuler is working on a grant from the Department of Defense to gauge post-operative recovery through the use of bracing. Dr. Tally has assisted in the development of a device used in minimally-invasive spine surgery and is one of only 20 doctors in the country to work as a physician mentor in performing these cutting-edge surgeries. These efforts and more have put our physicians on the forefront of the medical technology industry.
