ATLANTA, August 2, 2018 (Newswire.com) - OrthoAtlanta is pleased to welcome orthopedic surgeon Obi U. Osuji, M.D., to its orthopedic and sports medicine practice in Gwinnett and Johns Creek. Dr. Osuji brings expertise in adult reconstructive surgery to patients in the greater North Fulton County area, including Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Duluth and Lawrenceville. Board-certified and fellowship-trained in adult total joint reconstruction, Dr. Osuji also holds additional training in partial knee replacement and robotic surgery.
Dr. Osuji’s practice includes general orthopedics and joint replacement, including direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty, robotic total hip arthroplasty and hip arthroscopy. Surgical procedures for the knee include knee arthroscopy, total knee replacement and unicompartmental knee replacement, also known as partial knee replacement. With his medical practice focused on treating patients with musculoskeletal disorders, Dr. Osuji said, “My goal is to educate my patients about their orthopedic conditions and to provide thoughtful, patient-centered and evidence-based orthopedic care.”
“Dr. Osuji joins the OrthoAtlanta orthopedic sports medicine group in Gwinnett and Johns Creek to serve patients with many types of hip and knee disorders,” said Dr. Michael J. Behr, OrthoAtlanta medical director. “Dr. Osuji is skilled in performing direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty, a total hip replacement procedure that has become very popular and is considered a less-invasive alternative to the traditional approaches to hip replacement. Also referred to as front hip replacement, direct anterior approach hip arthroplasty can typically result in a faster return to daily activities with less immediate post-operative restrictions.”
Dr. Obi U. Osuji graduated summa cum laude from City University of New York, New York, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. Dr. Osuji received his Doctor of Medicine degree at Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California.
