Dr. Fogle performed surgery for 2 rotator cuff tears in my left shoulder several weeks ago. Dr. Fogle is part of the Resurgens Ortho group in Atlanta and is an excellent physician. He is totally focused on patient outcomes and does not jump to surgery as the first option. His staff are professional and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Fogle.

Dr. Fogle is a wonderful doctor! He helped me with pain in my elbows (lateral epicondylitis) that had been bothering me for a year. He started conservatively by injection cortisone into each elbow. When this only worked for three to four weeks, he offered me another alternative, surgery. He explained all of the risk factors and the positives of the surgery. He performed the surgery in my right elbow first and when that one healed, he did the left elbow. He is also a wonderful person!

Dr. Fogle and his entire staff are wonderful. I fractured my tibial plateau in June and both he and his PA-C gave me excellent care throughout the entire process. I had surgery and several follow-up visits. On every occasion, he has had impeccable bedside manner and has clearly explained all aspects of my injury. I am continuing treatment with his office for arthritis pain in both knees and he has referred me to another physician for knee replacements next year.
in Duluth, GA |
Dr. Fogle is an excellent clinician but he also has a great bedside manner. He explains diagnoses and proposed treatment in a way that is understandable and he willing to answer questions and concerns. He is also quite kind and is truly interested in the concerns of his patients.

Dr. Fogle surgically repaired 3 torn tendons within my rotator cuff using arthroscopy. It took 18 long weeks to recover (just as Dr Gegle said it would), but I am almost back to normal with very small scars. Nice job Doc!
in Alpharetta, GA |
Dr. Fogle is such a warm person. I had my ACL reconstruction done by him last week and am extremely thankful to god and him for work that has been performed. I am recovering very well thanks to his great work. He is very calming and that helps me out big time. He explains all the options i have and once i ask his recommendation, he is very assertive and gives his reason as to why he recommends a particular option. I had complete trust with the way he interacted with me.

I am a 50 year old male who has been athletic my whole life. I recently had surgery on my shoulder for a rotator cuff tear, partial bicep rupture as well as some other degenerative issues. I was impressed with every step of the process, from the initial appointment and diagnosis to the surgery and now recovery physical therapy. I put this surgery off for years, ultimately making the inevitable worse, and am now very happy with the outcome! I look forward to working our for many more years!
in Atlanta, GA |
We selected Dr. Fogle for a soccer-caused broken fibula and torn ligaments on both sides of the right ankle. He and his office staff of supporting doctors and nurses were helpful, efficient, patient and competent. The ankle was repaired surgically, healed quickly, and rehab was started immediately so this unhappy, painful and trying experience was made much more bearable and better by this capable surgery and rehab group! Thank you all for your dedication.
in Sharpsburg, GA |
Dr. Fogle was recommended to me by my primary physician after I severely injured my shoulder in a fall while working at our lake house. Although nothing was broken I had torn my front rotator cuff and my upper rotator was torn completely and retracted. Dr. Fogle patched it all back together, scraped away a bunch of arthritis, and relocated my bicep. Although I still have some time left before I'm back to 100%, I am very happy with the results and progress I've made.
Ready to do it again. Everybody was great. Dr. Fogle is awesome and let me know just what to expect.

Dr. Fogle says...

At a young age, I sought to become an engineer as I enjoyed fixing and building things.  That all changed when I was in college.  I envisioned a career that would positively impact people.  Once I discovered the medical specialty of orthopaedic surgery, it seemed to be the perfect combination of caring for people and using engineering principles.

As native Atlantan, I attended The Westminster Schools, spending my senior year abroad in Germany. I majored in economics at Stanford University prior to studying medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.  After five years of orthopaedic residency training at Emory University, I served in the US Navy as the staff orthopaedic surgeon in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and cared for wounded Marines at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, California.

I am happily married with three young children and enjoy my kids' activities, cars, golf, wakeboarding, scuba diving and fishing.

I also firmly believe in Resurgens' Mission, which is to provide excellent, patient-focused and comprehensive musculoskeletal care to the Atlanta community and surrounding areas.

Dr. Fogle says...

After medical school and residency, I completed an extra year of specialized training, a fellowship, in shoulder and elbow surgery.  This opportunity allowed me to learn advanced techniques from outstanding orthopaedic surgeons at the University of Southern California.  I was also fortunate to have extensive experience in treating knee and shoulder problems at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, CA.  These injuries ranged from sports injuries to trauma.
