Surgery to the spine is one of the most improved areas in modern medicine. New imaging technologies are used in conjunction with the old fashioned physical examination to arrive at a very accurate diagnosis. Should surgery be indicated, it is now less invasive and more successful than ever. New techniques combined with rigorous surgical indications, are producing excellent surgical outcomes. Champion Orthopedics is proud to have Dr. J. Allan Goodrich providing care to our spine patients. He is an Emory University trained spine surgeon who has practiced in Augusta since the early 1990s and has established an excellent reputation in our community.
