Meet Our Team at Georgia Knee Institute

Personalized care that prioritizes patient comfort and outcomes.

Under the leadership of Dr. Kevin T. Lie, our team proudly offers innovative, minimally invasive interventions for knee-related concerns, including genicular artery embolization (GAE)—an optimal alternative to total knee replacement—and advanced arthroscopic techniques.

We are passionate about delivering near-immediate knee pain relief using non-surgical treatment alternatives. We help our patients regain mobility, improve function, and return to doing the things they love faster, and with confidence.
