They will start seeing patients on April 1, 2021 in Griffin.

The Spivey/Jonesboro office will close permanently.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and confidence in allowing Orthopedic Solutions to provide orthopedic care to our community for the past 40 years.   Now is the time for myself and Dr. Nair to announce our retirement. 


Because we want to be certain our patients continue to receive the best care possible, we have selected Georgia Bone and Joint (GB&J), whom we believe possess the highest qualifications, to continue your care at the Griffin location. Dr. Jack Powell III is the founding partner at GB&J and he and I were residents together at Emory. We have come to an agreement that they will accept all of our current patients into their practice. They are maintaining the current phone numbers and will continue to provide orthopedic care for you in Griffin. In addition to make sure you will feel comfortable and welcomed, they are retaining all of my current medical professional and business office staff, so you will continue to see all of their familiar faces.


Georgia Bone & Joint and Orthopedic Solutions have worked diligently to make this transition as seamless as possible.  Dr. Nair and I feel confident that Georgia Bone & Joint and their 9-fellowship trained orthopedic specialists will bring a level of orthopedic care previously never available in Griffin. GB&J’s current physician staff includes fellowship trained Spine, Foot and Ankle, Shoulder, Sports Medicine, Reconstructive Total Joint, and the only fellowship trained pediatric orthopedic surgeon on the south side of Atlanta. GB&J’s trained orthopedic surgeons are excited to continue to provide you and your family with exceptional orthopedic care.  We also have physicians trained in the latest Ortho Biologic treatments including PRP, Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Aspirates injections. To learn more about the new practice please visit their website at www.georgiaboneandjoint.org or to make an appointment call 770-502-2175.



We would again like to personally express our gratitude to you for trusting us with your care over the last forty years and are confident that you will be pleased with the care provided by GB&J in the future.   


Thank you,


Dr. Velazco and Dr. Nair
