BAXLEY — The Bone & Joint Institute of South Georgia recently moved its Baxley Satellite Clinic to a new location — 1093 W. Parker St., suite A — offering the convenience of on-site X-rays and allowing patients more direct, personal contact with their BJISG physicians.
Based in Jesup, BJI serves 13 Southeast Georgia counties and has satellite offices in Hinesville and Waycross in addition to its Baxley location.
The original Baxley location opened in the mid-1990s as the first satellite location of the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Practice. The new office is across from Walmart, inside the South Georgia Diagnostic and Prevention Center, at the office of Dr. Clay Carter and Caroline Anderson, FNP.
W. Scott Rowell, P.A.-C, a Medical College of Georgia graduate who has been with the practice since 1998, remains the primary provider of the new Baxley clinic. Rowell and the BJISG physicians diagnose and treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions, including fracture management, arthritis of the hip, knee and shoulder replacement and sports-related injuries.
“The staff and doctors of BJI strive to make every location the very best by providing patients with the highest quality of orthopedic care possible,” orthopedic surgeon J. Lex Kenerly said. “Baxley was our first satellite office, and we are so grateful for the continued support of this community and the opportunity to provide patients in the area with the personal care and attention they expect from us.”
The Bone & Joint Institute of South Georgia features a Joint Commission-accredited surgery center in Jesup, with digital surgical suites designed for orthopedic surgeries, and on-site X-ray services. Both the Jesup and Waycross locations house open MRIs and are accredited by the American College of Radiology.
