About Perimeter Orthopaedics, PC

Perimeter Orthopaedics, PC boasts a 15,000-square-foot facility and an Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) accredited outpatient surgical center, that’s conveniently situated at the MARTA Medical Center Stop on the campus of Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital in north-central Atlanta, Georgia.

Our physicians are fellowship-trained, and board-certified and/or board-eligible orthopaedic surgeons who diagnose and offer patients superior care with the most advanced surgical and non-surgical treatments available today.

Originally founded by Dr. Paul V. Spiegl, this progressive orthopaedic practice consistently maintains an excellent reputation in the medical community of Atlanta.

Our specialties include injuries, diseases, and conditions of the foot and ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. Our physicians have over 35 years of experience treating everything from the most common orthopaedic conditions to the most serious and complex. We treat professional athletes, work-related injuries, fractures, and patients with chronic conditions, such as arthritis and diabetes-related issues. 

Our AAAHC accredited facilities are available for traumatic injuries, joint reconstruction, neurologic surgery, foot and ankle surgery, knee, shoulder, and elbow arthroscopy, sports medicine, wound treatment, and shock wave therapy. For patients requiring inpatient surgery, our physicians maintain privileges at both St. Joseph's Hospital and Northside Hospital.

Perimeter Orthopaedics, PC offers an incomparable patient experience, providing patients with dedicated and compassionate care at every step of their journey, from consultation to treatment plans, and surgical or nonsurgical procedures through follow-up care.

Orthopedics: Common Sports Injuries

With most Americans engaging in some type of sports or physical fitness activity each year, the most common reason to visit the ER is due to sports injuries. Specializing in Sports Medicine, Dr. Nicholson can treat most sports injuries in-office.

Back Pain While Working from Home

Due to ongoing global challenges—putting it mildly—many employees adapted to a work-from-home setup. Back pain is a common occurrence whether you’re working at the office or working from home. Spinal injections are one way to combat the lingering pain.
