In addition to the new clinics north of the city, patients can also receive care at the Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital located in Tucker and the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center in Atlanta.

Emory Healthcare opened two new clinics and added four new physicians in order to better serve patients near Johns Creek and Duluth. The new clinics, both known as the Emory Orthopaedics, Sports & Spine, offer a full range of treatment for orthopaedic conditions and injuries including sports medicine, hand and upper extremities, foot and ankle, joint replacement, shoulder, knee and hip, spinal care, and concussions. 

In an effort to meet the increasing demand for orthopaedic care, Emory Orthopaedics acquired Sports Medicine of Gwinnett in Duluth, a private practice led by T. Scott Maughon, MD, and Mathew Pombo, MD.  Both physicians have long-standing relationships within the community.  The new Johns Creek clinic is led by physicians Kyle Hammond, MD and Oluseun Olufade, MD and located in the Emory Johns Creek Physicians Plaza, connected to the hospital. All four physicians bring extensive training and experience to the new clinics.

"The needs of our patients always come first," says Scott Boden, MD, director of the Emory Orthopaedics and Spine Center and professor and vice chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.  "We are excited to offer top-notch physicians and convenient locations for high-level, specialized care that address the unique needs of orthopaedic and spine patients."

In addition to the new clinics north of the city, patients can also receive care at the Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital located in Tucker and the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center in Atlanta.

"My colleagues and I are extremely pleased to join the Emory Healthcare team," says Mathew Pombo, MD, assistant professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Emory Healthcare. "We are excited to provide our patients with greater access to Emory’s broad networks and specialty care options."
