Arthritis &Total Joint Specialists is expanding into Gwinnett County with its newest location in Lawrenceville. Dr. Robert Wood joins the medical practice’s team of orthopedic and joint replacement experts and began seeing patients at the new location in January.

Dr. Wood is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hip, knee and ankle replacement for patients suffering from chronic joint pain and arthritis. He is extensively experienced in outpatient total joint replacement and uses the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques, including anterior hip replacement and partial knee replacement.

“I strive to make each of my patients an active participant in their care and make sure they understand their condition thoroughly,” said Dr. Wood, who personalizes care based on each patient’s individual needs with the goal of returning them to activity and restoring them quality of life.

An industry leader in rapid recovery, most patients Dr. Wood treats are able to return home the same day of their surgery and with less pain.

In addition to providing patient care, Dr. Wood has published his research on orthopedic surgery and contributed to several textbooks. He has clinical interests in bioabsorbable fixation for tendon transfers, total ankle replacement, the use of modular prosthesis in revision hip replacement and direct anterior total hip replacement.

With the addition of the Lawrenceville location, Arthritis & Total Joint Specialists now has offices in Alpharetta, Braselton, Canton, Cumming, East Cobb, Lawrenceville, Midtown Atlanta, and Woodstock.

Arthritis & Total Joint Specialists’ Lawrenceville office is located at 771 Old Norcross Road, Suite 135, Lawrenceville, GA 30046.
