WHAT ARE AOS’ PRIMARY SERVICES?
Diagnostic and corrective surgical services for orthopaedic problems. We offer a full range of operative and non-operative treatments for sports medicine, orthopaedic spine issues, hand and upper extremity (including shoulder) issues, foot and ankle issues, total joint replacement, arthritis, injuries and all musculoskeletal problems. We also have on-site whole-body MRI and physical therapy services.
WHAT IS AOS’ PATIENT-CARE PHILOSOPHY?
Our mission is to provide a full range of orthopaedic specialty care to our patients and to remain at the forefront of orthopaedic advancements and techniques. We strive to provide each patient with precise, cost-effective and respectful care with the ultimate goal of improving our patients’ quality of life. We always strive to treat our patients, their families, our community and each other with respect, compassion and discretion.
HOW HAVE CHANGES IN TECHNOLOGY AFFECTED THE WAY AOS APPROACHES PATIENT CARE?
AOS was an early adopter of the EHR (Electronic Health Record) and has been using it for 10 years. This has allowed for a more complete and accessible patient record. AOS also uses digital X-ray images, making them instantly available to the doctor and allowing for quick retrieval of previous images for comparison.
WHAT SETS AOS APART?
We are a sub-specialized orthopaedic practice where each physician has completed a fellowship (extra training following residency) in a specialized area of the musculoskeletal system. We are a one-stop orthopaedic campus for most orthopaedic problems. There is little reason to travel to Birmingham for orthopaedic care when we have this caliber of expertise here. And we’ve simplified the process. At our Montgomery location, we have an orthopaedic campus with two clinic buildings, AOS Physical Therapy Center and an MRI facility, so there is no need to bounce between multiple offices for the care you need. AOS also sees patients by appointment in Prattville and Wetumpka.
