Orthopedic Surgery

The team at Stephens County Physician Group provides comprehensive orthopedic care to patients in Stephens County and in Northeast Georgia.

We know that muscle, joint and bone pain can be disruptive to your everyday life. We can help. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Vaughn, and his team are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating a broad spectrum of injuries and conditions with both surgical and non-surgical care. We also specialize in treating sports injuries.

Should your condition require surgical care, Dr. Vaughn performs the latest, most advanced procedures, including arthroscopy, minimally invasive surgery and Total Joint Replacement surgery.  

The most common surgical procedures we perform are:

Total Joint Replacement

Certified by The Joint Commission, we specialize in Total Joint Replacement using advanced technology, treatment and surgical techniques. Total Joint Replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint, allowing you to return to your everyday activities and restore your range of motion.
