Join us in celebrating the Grand Opening of Resurgens Orthopaedics! Resurgens Orthopaedics was first established in 1986 by Dr. John Garrett. Dr. Garrett’s vision was to provide excellent, innovative, patient-focused and comprehensive orthopaedic care to the greater Atlanta community. In 1999, seven independent physician groups merged to form one practice under the existing name of Resurgens Orthopaedics. Since that time, Resurgens has grown to become a household name throughout Georgia, with 24 offices serving local communities in and around the metro area.
