We have twelve orthopedic doctors in Nashville and Franklin, TN. These orthopedists are board-certified and have completed fellowships across the country under the tutelage of the best orthopedic doctors of the last few decades.

Some of them, like our founding physician, Dr. Burton Elrod, are even pioneers in the field of orthopedics. Dr. Burton Elrod was one of the earliest adopters of arthroscopic surgery in the late twentieth century. Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that involves using a tiny camera to see the inside of a joint. Staying up to date with the latest technology and surgical techniques has remained a priority for our entire orthopedic clinic.
