Castle Connolly – Top Doctors
Dr. Hellman serves the South Georgia region as an orthopedic and spinal surgery sub-specialist. In an effort to provide the finest in specialized spinal care to his patients, Hellman has gone on to receive additional training in spinal surgery by completing a fellowship in spinal surgery beyond his residency, and then went on to become double board certified in both the fields of orthopedic surgery and spinal surgery. This extra training has prepared Dr. Hellman to perform a wide variety of spinal surgeries from the complex spinal deformities such as scoliosis to emerging spinal surgeries such as the artificial disc replacement and endoscopic LASER disc surgery. Dr. Hellman’s goal is to bring the highest level of spinal care to the residents of South Georgia – the same level of care they would receive if they traveled several hours to a major university spinal center-but with the convenience of being close to home. In addition to Dr. Hellman’s extensive education and training, he has also published articles and presented lectures on spinal surgeries to both lay-people as well as other surgeons.
