Atlanta Orthopedic Specialists with Expertise in:

Hip

The hip is a ball and socket joint that consist of the round femoral head sitting in the acetabulum of the pelvis. The socket is deepened by a rim of tissue called the labrum.

Knee

The knee is a hinge joint comprising articulations between the femur, tibia, and patella (knee cap). Ligaments in the knee such as the ACL, PCL, MCL and LCL help to stabilize the knee in all planes of motion.

Shoulder

The shoulder is similar to the hip in that it is also a ball and socket joint. The humeral head comprises the ball and the glenoid, part of the shoulder blade, makes up the socket.

Hand and Elbow

Injuries to the hand and elbow are common in the athlete and in the workplace. They can range from bicep tendon tears during a work out to overuse injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

“Dr. Andrachuk is by far the best doctor of any kind I’ve ever known. Having lower back pain, even after a fusion, for over 20 YEARS, Dr. A made my pain mainly go away with a hip scope! That was 1 and 1/2 yrs ago. Very smart, very caring
professional and he thinks out of the box for solutions for his patients . He’s the only doctor I’ve found who does hip scopes! And his office offers wonderfully friendly service. His nurse is the best! “
