Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
Atlanta’s oldest orthopaedic group continues to expand its services in the Metro area by adding a seventh location. The new clinic is located at 1163 Johnson Ferry Rd, Suite 200, Marietta, GA 30068, and, like other Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic locations, will provide superior and comprehensive orthopaedic services for the communities in East Cobb. Drs. Kimmerly, Henry, Ready, Pennington and Schiff are the Physicians on rotation at the new clinic.
In addition, Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic Physicians, W. Scott Kimmerly, M.D. and John D. Henry, Jr., M.D. have been named the Team Physicians for the Walton Raiders. Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic physicians are also affiliated with the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks, Gwinnett Braves and Georgia State University as team orthopaedists as well as serving as advisors to the Atlanta Ballet. However, the majority of the sports medicine practice is directed to the care and treatment of the recreational athlete.
Dr. Kimmerly has been involved in the care of athletes at all levels including high school, college and professional. He provides sports medicine coverage for Georgia State University and is an official medical provider for the United States Ski and Snowboard teams.
Dr. Henry practiced orthopaedic surgery and total joint replacement surgery at the Emory Clinic from 1992 to 1998 before joining POC. While director of the Joint Replacement Center at Northside Hospital, the Joint Commission accredited Northside Hospital as a national “Center of Excellence” for both total hip and knee replacement surgery. Dr. Henry and his wife, Terri, are Walton community residents with two daughters, Christine and Rebecca, who graduated from WHS and a son, Jack who is a sophomore and plays football for the Raiders.
Dr. Kimmerly and Dr. Henry are very excited to be the Walton Raider team physicians and will be familiar sights along the sidelines this Fall. “While we hope that none of the athletes need us, we are honored to give them our very best care if they do,” says Dr. Kimmerly.
