In metro Atlanta, there’s no shortage of patient-centered care. At these hospitals, medical practices, and other healthcare establishments, compassion meets innovation for healthcare you can trust.
Emory Proton Therapy Center
The latest tool to fight cancer is here in Atlanta. Emory Proton Therapy Center offers the most advanced radiation treatment available under the care and expertise of renowned specialists at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Georgia’s only National Cancer Institute–designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Proton therapy combines advances in radiation technology, engineering, and medical physics to deliver a treatment precisely where needed—with less spillover to adjacent healthy tissue. That means less radiation exposure to normal tissues and the potential for fewer side effects and complications, especially for cancers near sensitive organs and for children whose tissues are still developing.
Proton therapy is here in Georgia, and its role in treating patients with cancer is only just beginning.
Grady Health System
These are unusual times. Times that test who we are and what we are made of. At Grady, facing our second pandemic in the last one hundred years, we draw on our history of success battling major outbreaks like polio and AIDS, and winning the fight against everyday life-threatening conditions.
Providing safe, timely, and compassionate care has always been our top priority. Enhanced protocols are in place at every level of care, from our primary care centers to our acclaimed emergency and trauma services. Telehealth innovations that allowed us to continue outpatient care during the peak of the COVID-19 crisis are being expanded, creating greater access to some of the top physicians and specialists the city and country have to offer.
No one looks forward to a mammogram, but mammograms don’t have to be a poor experience. Here are five important reasons why Northside Hospital’s mammograms are better than ever:
- They’re accurate. Tomosynthesis (3D) mammography has been shown in scientific studies around the world to consistently find 30 to 40 percent more invasive cancers than 2D mammography alone.
- They’re comfortable. Northside has invested in the most advanced—and most comfortable—technology across locations. This technology offers 60 percent shorter compression time.
- They’re safer. With Northside’s new system, the radiation dose is almost cut in half, while still providing sharp, high-resolution images.
- They’re convenient. This advanced technology is available at all of Northside’s breast imaging locations as well as at the ScreenAtlanta mobile mammography van.
- They’re comprehensive. Northside’s breast care program offers comprehensive breast care services—from screening through survivorship.
When it comes to healthcare, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach for every family. That’s why Wellstar is changing the way families in Georgia receive healthcare.
For families like the Matthews’, Wellstar has become part of their lives—and even been there for the start of new life. After giving birth, Deidra found support from her labor and delivery nurses to gain more confidence in holding and feeding her new daughter, Chase. The same caring nurses taught Deidra’s husband, Bow, to change diapers, which came in handy when the couple’s son, Canon, came along.
Since then, the care hasn’t skipped a beat.
No two families of four are exactly alike, and at Wellstar, we would never treat them that way.

AllSpine Laser & Surgery Center
Laser spine surgery has made life better for thousands of people who thought they would suffer with back pain for the rest of their lives. It’s been nothing short of a miracle. The problem? When you think you’re getting laser spine surgery and you’re actually not.
Some doctors use the word “laser spine surgery” as a marketing tool and then use traditional surgical techniques. These false marketing practices create disinformation for patients. What you want to look for is a doctor who performs “percutaneous laser disc decompression surgery,” or PLDD surgery. With no hospital stay needed and no cutting or scarring from the procedure, PLDD surgery at AllSpine Laser & Surgery Center is the answer to your chronic back and neck pain.
Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery
Dr. Pradeep Sinha is double board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery. His professional career in the same practice has spanned four decades, and he has successfully performed more than 10,000 procedures on patients of all ages. These are specifically rhinoplasty, facelift, browlift, blepharoplasty, and surgery to restore function of the nose.
When considering plastic surgery of the face and neck, Dr. Sinha’s artistic goal for restoring your youthful and refreshed look is to help define and enhance the underlying foundation of your unique features rather than trying to conceal or alter. He takes the time and effort to ensure everyone’s procedure is uniquely individualized to achieve this result rather than perform “cookie-cutter” surgery where all patients look the same.
St. George Village
Music is powerful. It gives us a way to express our emotions and to connect with other people, crossing over generational and cultural boundaries.
St. George Village resident Tom McDermott says music was a common ground for making new friends when he moved to the community, but he also learned it had a healing quality. McDermott, who plays violin, serves as leader of the Band-Aids, a group of resident musicians who often accompany in-house troubadours, the Villagers.
Music is part of St. George Village’s person-centered tradition of care. At the core of this approach is the Eden Alternative, a philosophy based on bettering the quality of life for seniors.
