Dr. Harkins said that he is very excited about this opportunity and is looking forward to providing high-quality care for Newton and Rockdale County patients.
Common orthopedic problems that Athens Orthopedic Clinic’s providers treat are: rotator cuff tears, arthritis, fractures, sprains, neck and back pain, and other sports injuries. With a goal of conservative, minimally-invasive treatment, we only consider surgery after all other treatments have been exhausted. Our providers are proficient in many surgeries including total joint replacement of the knee, hip, and shoulder, MAKOplasty, arthroscopy, ligament reconstruction and clavicle repair.
