How We Work
Picking the right healthcare partner is important to you. We get it. Your health is vital and the right treatment can make all the difference. Before you choose Georgia Spine for your orthopedic partner, we want you to have all the information you need for a wise decision.
At Georgia Spine, our core values are expressed through 3 imperatives.
Perfect healthcare answers don’t exist. We won’t try to tell you that they do. You are far more invested in your health than we could ever be—it affects everything you do! So you need treatment that fits your body, your goals, and your situation. We’ll consider a myriad of factors before recommending a treatment plan.
When we do create your plan, we’ll stay conservative. Many conditions can be treated without surgery. In fact, Dr. Bendiks performs surgery on less than 1% of his patients. If we do recommend surgery, it will be minimally invasive. Most patients return home the day of the surgery and experience rapid improvement.
Throughout the entire process, we will carefully communicate your options, answer your questions, and respect your decisions. Your body, your health.
Medical professionals should never stop learning. Our team closely follows new developments in orthopedics and we regularly update our equipment and procedures. In addition, we contribute new innovations to the field. Dr. Bendiks is a leading spine researcher who regularly develops new techniques and teaches other spine surgeons.Learn more about

You shouldn’t be alone in your battle with pain and discomfort. At Georgia Spine, we consider ourselves true partners in your fight. Several of our staff members have personal experience with orthopedic conditions and pain, which gives them extra insight into your experience. All of us want to understand your unique struggle and help you find a good “after.” This desire shapes every part of our practice, but we’ll pinpoint two things here.
First, we’ve done our best to make your treatment as easy as possible. From in-office procedures to integrating our services, we’ve tried to protect you from extra paperwork, red tape, and frustration.
Second, we want to be readily accessible any time you have questions or concerns. We promptly return calls and Dr. Bendiks even provides his cell phone number so that patients can directly contact him. At Georgia Spine, you are a person, not paperwork.Schedule a consultation
