Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance is the largest orthopaedic surgery group in Nashville and Middle Tennessee, and one of the largest in the nation. We are proud of our growth and it all started from humble beginnings when our founder, Dr. George Carpenter, Sr. opened the first orthopaedic practice in Nashville in 1926. Ninety plus years later we are advancing the practice of orthopaedic surgery throughout Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. TOA has always been driven by the desire to find new ways to ensure the highest level of conscientious, quality patient care. Service and complete musculoskeletal expertise in all dimensions of delivery is our goal. As your healthcare partners, we encourage your questions and concerns at any time during your treatment. The physicians of TOA concentrate on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Our practice strives to provide the full spectrum of care from initial diagnosis of all musculoskeletal disorders, through treatment, rehabilitation and education to prevent future injury. Our goal is to restore each individual to an active and functional life. Our team of physicians provides comprehensive orthopaedic care with expertise including sports medicine, joint replacement, spine, hand, wrist and elbow, foot and ankle surgery, shoulder surgery, pediatric orthopaedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and arthroscopy and trauma care. We also have ancillary facilities that provide for your MRI and hand therapy and physical therapy needs. We all lead active professional and recreational lives that may be hampered by injuries, arthritis, aches and pains in our bones and joints. Our team of orthopaedic surgeons is available to help you return to your active lifestyle.
