Welcome & History
Thank you for visiting our website, and your interest in our practice. I have had the great fortune of serving thousands of patients of Alabama and their families for over forty years.
In the mid 2000's, I decided to re-work our practice, and begin a different way to provide services to our patients. It became clear that serving our patients, in their communities, was what our patients wanted.
Our patients were tired of visiting large hospital campuses, paying for parking, and having to navigate long corridors while on crutches. Thus, you will find us in seven locations close to your home.
We appreciate you trusting us with your orthopedic needs, it is our goal to help you through whatever injury you may have, and to make the experience as painless as possible.
