About Dr. Alonzo Sexton

Dr. Alonzo Sexton believes that “our job is to help patients find what they’ve lost.” Whether that’s getting them back to work, a sport they love or even just being able to play with their grandkids, Orthopedics is a specialty designed to improve quality of life. A huge part of what determines an individuals overall health are their behaviors (i.e. exercise, diet and smoking). He believes we have an obligation to encourage our patients to live active lives and achieve the recommended levels of exercise (150 minutes /week). Dr Sexton serves as a second opinion physician for the NFL Players Association, was awarded Castle Connolly Top doc award in 2023 and had been team physician for the University of Georgia, Georgia State University and Clark Atlanta University. He also has a passion for alleviating health disparity in communities in need.
