TOA Update


 

Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance, the largest orthopaedic surgery group in the state, continues to expand.


Urgent/Injury Care

Earlier this year, TOA opened an Urgent Care/Injury Care Clinic in their oneC1TY offices to provide expert treatment for sudden injuries to bones, muscles, or joints. Supported by TOA's network of surgical specialists, the clinic provides patients with access to specialty care without appointments and after normal practice hours.

TOA officials said the goal was to provide convenient and immediate access to non-emergent care for sports, recreational, home, or work-related injuries. Everything from strains, sprains and dislocations to broken bones, fractures and more acute injuries, can be assessed onsite. In addition, the clinic offers casting, X-ray, MRI, and CT services.

TOA's Urgent Care/Injury Clinic is open 9 am-7 pm Monday-Friday and 9 am-noon Saturday. The clinic sees both adult and pediatric patients with fellowship-trained pediatric orthopaedic surgical specialists available for consultation.

He is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee, and complex shoulder reconstructions including anatomic and reverse total shoulder replacements.
