Our History

Dr. William “Butch” Mulherin founded AOC in 1966. Athens Orthopedic Clinic started in a small building on South Lumpkin Street with only two exam rooms and one nurse. Shortly thereafter, the office moved to 125 King Avenue in 1972. Our King Avenue building was renovated twice. A two-story building was built in 1982 next to the original one story building. Some years later, a second floor was built on the original building, bringing the size to 16,000 square feet.

Our Patients Say It Best!

Stellar orthopedic care
I have had three surgeries here in the past three years, two lower back and one neck. Dr. Tally and Skye are awesome, and they have provided excellent care. The front office staff is welcoming and incredibly efficient. When I went to Athens Neurological for neck and back issues, I was accustomed to waiting over an hour at each visit. At AOC, I have never waited more than ten minutes in the waiting room. For most visits, I have x-rays, see the doc, and out the door in less than 30 minutes total! I would highly recommend AOC to anyone looking for stellar orthopedic care.
Jeff, Lower Back Surgery
They all get an A+
I was a bit nervous about the whole knee replacement thing, but I am glad that I chose AOC. All of the staff have been awesome. Thanks Dr. Mandfredi for giving me a new knee and improved quality of life. Thanks to David and the nurses for constant care and encouragement. They have the best Physical Therapy group I believe I have ever been involved with. They are very professional and tough. Thanks a lot to Megan Stines for putting up with my complaining, but making me do the work, no matter how much I tried to get out of it. They all get an A+. I would recommend them all to anyone who is looking for an Orthopedic clinic to go to.

I highly recommend them!
Dr. Register performed arthroscopic surgery on my knee. He was attentive and fixed me up. His PA, nurse and PT were always helpful. The anesthesiologist was awesome as was the clinical staff. Thank you! I highly recommend them!
