Welcoming two new physicians to its orthopedic and sports medicine practice, OrthoAtlanta Douglasville held an open house event for local medical, business and community leaders on March 15, 2018. In a ribbon-cutting ceremony conducted by the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce, over 65 members of the greater Douglasville area welcomed physicians, Christopher Burket, MD, and Yolanda Scott, MD, while also celebrating the remodel of the office located next to WellStar Douglas Hospital.
Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Burket, fellowship trained in sports medicine, joined the practice in late November 2017. Dr. Burket’s practice includes general orthopedics and sports medicine with a special interest in minimally-invasive shoulder, knee, hip and elbow arthroscopy. Skilled at treating shoulder instability and more advanced cases of rotator cuff repair, Dr. Burket is experienced in superior capsule reconstruction (SCR), a recently developed arthroscopic surgical technique used for the treatment of massive, irreparable rotator cuffs. Other areas of Dr. Burket’s practice include knee ligament reconstruction, total knee and shoulder arthroplasty including reverse total shoulder replacement. Dr. Burket received his sports medicine fellowship at the Ochsner Sports Medicine Institute in New Orleans, Louisiana. Dr. Burket recently moved to the Atlanta area with his wife and two children. Since joining OrthoAtlanta, Dr. Burket serves as the team physician for Douglas County High School in Douglasville, Georgia.
Physiatrist, Dr. Yolanda Scott, fellowship trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) and interventional spine, joined the Douglasville practice in early February 2018. Dr. Scott provides non-surgical orthopedic care, including non-surgical spine, musculoskeletal medicine, and functional medicine, to patients suffering muscular, nerve, joint, and tendon injuries. Her areas of interest include neck, low back pain, joint injection, regenerative medicine and chronic pelvic pain. Dr. Scott completed internal medicine and PM&R residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, followed by fellowship training at Non-Surgical Orthopedics, Marietta, Georgia.
Providing opening comments to guests attending the evening event was OrthoAtlanta Douglasville orthopedic surgeon, Matthew Jaffe, MD. As shared by Dr. Jaffe, “We are excited to welcome Dr. Burket and Dr. Scott to the OrthoAtlanta Douglasville practice.” Dr. Jaffe also explained, “Our newly remodeled OrthoAtlanta Douglasville office provides added patient convenience, comfort and access along with a single destination for patient orthopedic and sports medicine needs.” Orthopedic services provided at the Douglasville office include on-site MRI and X-ray services, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation services with on-site Physical Therapy facilities.
OrthoAtlanta Douglasville serves new and existing patients with orthopedic and sports medicine needs ranging from sprains, strains and fractures, workers’ compensation injuries, to the most complex total joint preservation, reconstruction or replacement and both non-surgical and surgical spine care needs.
