Academy Orthopedics Highlights its Boutique Approach to Service and Patient Care

Over 126 million adults in the United States are affected by some type of musculoskeletal condition. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, this is nearly one out of every two people in the United States population.

Chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions alike have given rise to an ever-increasing number of orthopedic clinics, healthcare businesses, and mega practices in the US today. Despite the growing number of healthcare facilities, many of these orthopedic businesses fall short of delivering individualized care and treatment.

Since opening in 1986, Academy Orthopedics has focused their practice on boutique care, customized treatment plans, and unparalleled service. Their three offices in Cumming, Buford, and Duluth, Georgia offer a convenient location to patients in the North Atlanta Metropolitan area.

This quarter, the company highlights what patients can expect when seeking orthopedic care within their practice.
