Many small towns and rural communities are facing a shortage of available healthcare services, but Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinic is working to bridge that gap. Their two clinics in Oak Ridge serve not only Oak Ridge, but the outlying areas as well.
Recently, two new fellowship trained surgeons have joined their staff and have clinics at the TOC Oak Ridge location.
Earl Anderson, Chief Executive Officer, says, “We’ve been a part of the Oak Ridge community for many years. Access to health care is so important. By providing fellowship trained doctors with specialized skills we are able to reach more people in the community who need orthopedic care.”
Two of the newest additions to TOC’s staff are Justin C. Kennon, MD and D. Hunter Hamilton, MD.
Dr, Kennon completed his Shoulder and Elbow fellowship training at Mayo Clinic. He sees patients of all ages with all different kinds of issues.
“It’s rewarding to help people with a difficult joint problem, says Kennon. I trained at the Mayo Clinic and learned to handle shoulder and elbow conditions from the best in the world. I feel patients today deserve a specialist who is an expert in their field; but I also know that they can appreciate someone with a genuine faith, caring, and compassion that is a product of my southern upbringing.”
Dr. Hamilton completed his Insall Scott Kelly Joint Reconstruction Fellowship at New York University Hospital for Joint Disease.
“Joint reconstruction affords me the opportunity to develop relationships with my patients as they struggle with joint pain. Once their pain is affecting their quality of life and limiting their ability to do the things they enjoy, I have a solution that successfully and predictably reduces their pain, improves their function, and can give them their life back,” explains Hamilton.
Both Kennon and Hamilton came to East Tennessee because they were looking for a community where they could, not only build their practices, but also raise their families.
Hamilton describes his feelings about being back home, “The people of East Tennessee are warm, welcoming and gracious. The natural surroundings are beautiful and offer ample opportunity to experience God’s creation. We are very excited to be here and have enjoyed being back home in Tennessee.”
