The Carrollton Orthopedic Clinic that Carroll and Haralson counties have known and trusted for over 45 years has a new name: OrthoWest. Located in Carrollton, Bremen, Villa Rica, and a new location soon to open in Mirror Lake, OrthoWest displays a fresh logo along with its new name. Since 1977 the physicians at Carrollton Orthopedic Clinic have treated any and all orthopedic ailments. From sports medicine to MRI diagnostic imaging to surgery, the group can safely say that if they haven’t treated you in one of these ways, they’ve treated someone you know!
With 25 providers, you can count on OrthoWest to provide you and your loved ones with the care needed for relief and recovery. These physicians have rightly earned the West Georgia area’s trust – a few being Carrollton natives, as well. Altogether, these orthopedic physicians can treat all of your orthopedic needs. It’s still the names you know and that have become family through the years: Fleck, Slappey, Scruggs, Cates, Charron, Colpini, Herman, Kirby, Lin, Maxwell, Pence, and Sunderland.
Ben Butler, CEO of OrthoWest, states that as the orthopedic practice has grown and expanded through the years, they now offer everything from urgent care to surgery to outpatient physical therapy. “It’s a credit to Dr. Ralph Fleck, our founder and the first orthopedic surgeon in west Georgia. His vision was a thriving and comprehensive musculoskeletal practice that served the entire region. OrthoWest is one of the largest ortho and spine practices in Georgia.”
With well-rounded and experienced practitioners, OrthoWest can give patients a more complete healing regimen – and fast! Despite their caring for almost 500 patients on any given day, when it comes to your health, any postponement in visits or care should be minimized as much as possible. “Quick Access to our providers has always been one of our advantages as a group,\” says Butler. “We know that if you’re in pain, you want to be seen as soon as possible. Most of our patients can see a provider the same or next day, which is something that practices in Atlanta cannot do.”
Whether you or a loved one has an injury that never seems to heal, an injury from the pickleball court, or needs a new total knee replacement, OrthoWest strives to treat you with respect and partner with you in the healing journey. They have experience treating the athletes from all of our local schools and the University of West Georgia. Many of the doctors have had strong ties with the community for years, even decades of service. They are willing to take you in!
“We want to thank the community for choosing us,” Butler says warmly. “And even if you didn’t choose us – if you came here in an emergency and still trusted us – we thank you.”
OrthoWest also wants to thank emphatically the hospitals, physician clinics, and urgent cares in the area for their referrals, as well. For times when trust and professionalism are everything, OrthoWest’s physicians thank those who entrust their well-being to them. “We are excited to continue to grow, and we’ve added new physicians over the last few months that many of you will get to know soon. Great days are ahead for OrthoWest.”
