FOUNDERS

OUR MISSION

 

Our mission is to abide by the Hippocratic Oath and provide our patients with the highest service quality in accordance with the highest medical and ethical standards for the profession. Our mission is also to attempt the alleviation of pain and suffering for patients afflicted with arthritis and similar joint diseases utilizing and developing new technologies to improve the care of patients with those diseases.

 

OUR VISION

 

Patient education is crucial in our practice, and we are committed to promoting and supporting our patients with all available information about treatment options and to answer questions about medical risks and facts for informed decision-making about their treatment. We respect patients’ rights to privacy and any requests regarding their healthcare.

 

 

WHAT MAKES US SPECIAL
  • The Talent of Our Physicians. Highly trained and proficient in specific sub-specialized areas of orthopaedics so they can serve patients efficiently and with the elevated skills that make a difference in patients' recoveries and future quality of life. Our physicians focus on specific areas of the body and are not generalist; this means your physician is an expert in the area of the body on which you need treatment. It also means that we perform more surgeries on specific injuries than any other physicians in Mississippi. Our mission is to provide a technically and personally superior experience. In order to achieve this objective, all seventeen physicians have developed a highly refined area of expertise to facilitate better patient care and state-of- the-art orthopaedics.
    • Mississippi Sports Medicine physicians are world experts in their sub-specialty fields
    • Our surgeons were the first of five in the United States and first in Mississippi performing Outpatient Joint Replacements
    • Our surgeons perform over half of the Total Joint Replacements in Mississippi
    • First surgeons in Mississippi to perform an outpatient anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. With our continued refinement, this procedure is now done routinely as an outpatient procedure.
    • First surgeons in Mississippi to perform an outpatient single level minimally invasive lumbar fusion
    • Our spine surgery specialists are pioneers in performing surgery through smaller incisions with minimal blood loss

 

  • Focused on Your Specific Injury. Our sub-specialized focus allows each surgeon to be more knowledgeable in the diagnosis, repair, and physical rehabilitation of related problems. It also makes Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center a “one stop shop.” for our patients and their families. Our physicians' sub-specialty areas include:
    • Foot & Ankle
    • Hand & Wrist
    • Hip & Knee
    • Hip & Knee Replacement
    • Shoulder & Elbow
    • Spine

 

  • Patient Cross-Referrals. Our physicians have the advantage of being able to cross-refer within the practice to the most appropriate sub-specialist to treat a patient’s underlying issue. Thus, the patients receive better care because they are treated by a physician who has developed greater experience in their particular diagnosis.

 

  • No Referral Needed. You have the opportunity to have a highly trained, sub-specialized physician, NO referral required. Just call to schedule an appointment with any of our physicians.

 

  • We Train Other Physicians. Physicians come to the Mississippi Sports Medicine Fellowship Programs from all over the United States and Canada to receive training from the best physicians in the country - our Mississippi Sports Medicine physicians. Additionally, our physicians participate in UMMC Orthopaedic resident rotations attributing to the knowledge and effectiveness of physicians as they complete their residency programs and move into practice serving future patients.

 

  • Technically Advanced Patient Facilities. We have created facilities that serve every aspect of our patients needs from injury event to treatment and surgery to rehab and return to fitness - all  conveniently positioned for easy use for our patients.
    • Largest Orthopaedic Joint Center in the United States and the first in Mississippi
    • First of three centers in the United States to perform Orthopaedic Joint Replacements
    • State of the art Surgery Center with advanced equipment allowing us to recreate in 3-D that helps our physicians better evaluate deformities and formulate a plan of action
    • Three MRIs
    • Three Physical Therapy and Performance Center locations
    • First and only private Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) in the United States to get Blue Cross/Blue Shield Specialty Center of Excellence designation for outpatient Joint and Spine surgeries.
    • First in Mississippi to offer Telehealth service to our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic

 

  •  Locations Positioned for Patient Convenience. With locations conveniently placed in Jackson, Madison, Flowood, and satellite locations in Brookhaven, Ruleville, and Yazoo City, we are positioned to help patients statewide with our caring staff of over 350 employees.
    • We offer three locations for urgent care. Our Urgent Ortho Care locations in Jackson, Flowood, and Madison offer fast diagnosis when you are injured on the job, on the field, or in your backyard. We're even open on Saturdays for your convenience.
    • Our Flowood location even has its own Coffee Shop to serve patients
