OrthoAtlanta is pleased to welcome orthopedic spine surgeon, Anuj Patel, M.D., to its orthopedic and sports medicine practice in Hiram, Georgia, bringing expert spinal care to the region, including Cobb, Paulding and Polk counties.

Anuj Patel 1MBBringing the latest technology and innovative techniques in spine care to the Paulding area, Dr. Patel performs all spinal surgeries including anterior and posterior cervical decompression and fusions, cervical disc replacement, cervical laminoplasty, lumbar microdiscectomy and laminectomy, and thoracic and lumbar anterior, lateral, and posterior fusion, all through minimally invasive approaches.

“Minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) has been a focus of my fellowship training,” said Anuj Patel, MD. “Minimally invasive techniques, including microdiscectomy, a minimally invasive procedure designed to relieve pain caused by a herniated disc pressing on a nerve root, allow for less post-operative pain, decreased soft tissue injury, less blood loss, and faster recovery times.”

Dr. Patel’s surgical training, including a spine fellowship from Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, and an orthopedic surgery residency at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, provided unparalleled experience in the field of spine surgery. Dr. Patel trained under the leaders in the field at both institutions. Additionally, he holds a specialized sub-fellowship in minimally invasive techniques from the Microendoscopic Spine Institute, in Boston, Massachusetts, where he focused on minimally invasive spine techniques including endoscopic spine procedures.

Dr. Patel completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at the Emory University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia in 2018 where he was elected chief resident of his residency program. Dr. Patel received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, in Mobile, Alabama in 2013, and a Bachelor of Science degree from Georgetown University, in Washington, D.C. in 2009 with ACS Accreditation in Biology. Dr. Patel is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), North American Spine Society, Georgia Orthopedic Society and the Atlanta Orthopedic Society.  He has been published in multiple spinal journals and has presented at several international spine meetings.
