AllSpine Surgery Center opens in Newnan

Dr. Shahram Rezaiamiri of AllSpine Surgery Center announces the opening of a Coweta location, which will begin seeing patients Aug. 19.

AllSpine Surgery Center is a one-stop shop pain and spine center. "From evaluating patients with the most basic conditions such as a simple back spasm, to the most complex surgical conditions such as spinal cord compression and tumors, we cover the entire spectrum of spinal diseases,” said Rezaiamiri.

AllSpine’s team consists of spine fellowship trained neurosurgeons, interventional spine specialists, and rehab physicians.

The Coweta location, at Thomas Crossroads, will be AllSpine’s fifth location in the Atlanta area. Other locations include Fayetteville, Stockbridge, Buckhead, and Riverdale.

“We are extremely excited about bringing our comprehensive and effective spine program to the Newnan and Peachtree City market,” Rezaiamiri said.

SouthTowne General Motors Superstore in Newnan has wrapped up a successful season with the Sharpsburg Youth Baseball League.

SouthTowne provided the league with new equipment, a monetary contribution and an opportunity for community members to raise funds for the league through a test drive fundraiser.

“We’re glad we were able to extend Chevrolet’s commitment to spreading joyful play to the members of our community,” said Jim McGraw, vice president of systems and operations for SouthTowne General Motors.
