The Team


  • "I was VERY impressed with Dr. Winchell, as he was the most caring physician I have ever been to. He spent approx. 30 minutes with me to fully understand what my problems were and how, moving forward, what my options were for treatment. I have been to other doctors in Savannah and I did not receive the genuinely caring treatment that I received from Dr. Winchell."
    ~Vitals.com testimonial.
  • "I feel like a new person after both hips were replaced by Dr. Winchell. Dr. Winchell is an excellent orthopedist, as well as a swell person. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who needs them. His office staff, x-ray technician, nurse and assistant (Chad) are always pleasant, efficient and helpful."
    ~Jeanelle S.
  • "I am 71 years old and I strongly recommend Dr. Mark A. Winchell for this procedure (both hips replaced) and have been more than satisfied with his service and his team."
    ~Gene H.
  • "I am a 56 year old male who was suffering with osteoarthritis in both knees. I was apprehensive about having my knees replaced at my age but after researching the ceramic technology employed by the Journey knee I was satisfied the knees should last the rest of my life. I now enjoy life more than I have in years. Also, I cannot thank Dr. Winchell enough for the excellent care and for changing my life for the better. You are a true healer in every sense of the word and the world is a better place for having you practice your craft."
