"I suffered an achilles tear playing flag football. After the experiences I went through with previous traditional surgeries on ACL tears, I was open to trying a different type of procedure. I spoke with Dr Williams about the injury and he explained how his procedure coupled with a physical therapy program would provide results that would allow me to continue playing sports past my age of 40. I flew to Colorado for the procedure and had follow up procedures and evaluations in the Atlanta office. After a physical therapy program I am delighted to say that I am back playing recreational sports, injury and pain free. I appreciate the help that Dr Williams and his staff were able to provide and I give them 5 stars."- R.B. / Google / Dec 11, 2019

"Dr. Chris Williams and his staff are definitely top-notch! For years, my grandmother has suffered from chronic knee and hip pain and has tried just about everything for relief. Due to her age, surgery was not a viable option. In fact, her previous specialist informed her that nothing else could be done in her situation as her arthritis is degenerative. All hope was lost until a family member strongly recommended giving Dr. Williams a try. From the first moment we arrived, Dr. Williams and his team were very professional and provided excellent service. Everyone at Interventional Orthopedics of Atlanta always goes the extra mile to listen to my grandmother attentively and go through each stage in the process in careful detail. Shortly after she began seeing Dr. Williams, my grandmother’s mobility has greatly improved and her severe bouts with pain are now almost nonexistent. Thank you Dr. Williams and your team for being so caring, attentive, thorough, and professional!!!"- D.K. / Google / Oct 01, 2019
