At Decatur Orthopedic Center, it is our privilege to help take care of your orthopedic needs. We utilize both non-surgical and surgical treatments to relieve pain and restore function to the musculoskeletal structures. We have the specialists that take care of a spectrum of orthopedics ranging form routine to truly unique, challenging problems. We have the experts in minimally invasive joint replacement, revision surgery, arthroscopic and open shoulder surgery just to name a few.
We will use only the most current, evidence based treatments for your orthopedic needs. We will not use any gimmicks. We are interested in helping our patients navigate through all the options that exist, with one goal in mind….What’s best for them! If it's not offered by our team, it's probably because there is insufficient evidence that it would help our patients.
By recommendation from my primary care provider, I met Dr. Sullivan on May 5, 2017. Dr. Sullivan performed XR’s in the office and determined that I had big problems with my knee. Together, we scheduled surgery for July 7, 2017 and I completed physical therapy in my home then finished in his office. Dr. Sullivan is a Doctor that I recommend to everybody! He works with great compassion and dedication. He is very supportive of his patients and a good surgeon.
Just want to thank you for such a well done job on my hip replacement. You are one of the best surgeons I have ever met. You and all your staff treated me with such compassion that I have never known in a clinic or doctors office. You know how to take care of your patients.
Total Hip Replacement on Wednesday the 29th, and walking on Friday 31st! Praise the Lord for Dr. Sams!
To the staff: May 14th was the 6 month anniversary of my hip surgery. Thank you for sharing your talent & compassion during the pre and post op visits. It’s nice to be pain free!
