How we helped the region’s 3rd largest orthopedic surgeons’ group reach peak performance

Company Overview


OrthoAtlanta is the 3rd largest orthopedic surgeons’ group in the Southeast, with eight locations across Georgia. Their practices provide top-quality orthopedic care to professional athletes and families alike.

On the surface, it sounds like OrthoAtlanta was exactly where they wanted to be. But they were frustrated by their inability to further their growth.

That Achilles heel, it turns out, was that they were entirely invisible to a large section of their market.

With an impressive local presence and the reputation to match, there was no reason why OrthoAtlanta couldn’t reach a wider audience. They turned to Cardinal for help.

The Problem

No social media presence, no paid advertising

After a few consultations and an audit of their marketing strategy, we discovered three areas that needed improvement:

  • The client had absolutely no social media presence
  • They had never utilized paid advertising to complement their marketing efforts
  • They did not rank well for key phrases focused on Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeons

Armed with that knowledge, we got to work designing a cutting edge marketing plan that would enhance OrthoAtlanta’s online presence to better serve their current patients while helping them grow their practice within their market.

The Solution

An effective marketing campaign uses organic, paid, and social channels

An effective marketing campaign uses organic, paid, and social channels to deliver results.

As part of our PPC strategy, we built out a comprehensive keyword list, built an extensive negative keyword list, and ran bid optimizations on a daily basis to ensure our client got the best possible return on investment.

Our paid advertising strategy not only helped OrthoAtlanta see results fast, but the results of that campaign helped shape our long-term organic approach.

As part of this organic strategy, we added OrthoAtlanta to key local physician directories and launched a variety of link-building campaigns that focused on digital PR, press releases, and on-site technical SEO strategies.

Through constant analysis and an embrace of agility, we provided the type of results OrthoAtlanta has long been after:


in the ranks for all of their targeted market keywords


Monthly web visits (from 3,909)

40% lower

average cost-per-click than their competitors while maintaining first-page Google ad placements


additional qualified leads to their website monthly

The Results

OrthoAtlanta Is Synonymous With Atlanta Orthopedics

With nearly 90% of U.S. adults using the internet to find doctors and answers to healthcare questions, having a strong digital presence is key to the success of any medical practice.

For OrthoAtlanta, it took a more comprehensive approach to digital marketing to help them break through the plateau they’d be stuck on for so long.
