"He is a visionary leader with a keen understanding of our business, and we are delighted to welcome him to the Resurgens Orthopaedics team."

Under Dr. Gleason and Dr. Lundy's leadership, Resurgens Orthopaedics cemented its position as one of the most trusted brands in Atlanta and one of the top 10 largest orthopaedic practices in the country. During their tenure, Resurgens Orthopaedics was consistently named a top workplace by several prestigious publications, topped numerous "Best Of" lists annually and its doctors were recognized as best-in-class by the Castle Connelly awards, among many others.
