We bring unmatched expertise in the areas of:



Gold Seal of Approval

The Erlanger Orthopaedic Institute is a Gold Seal of Approval® Certified Center of Excellence for Primary Hip and Knee Replacement designated by The Joint Commission. This certification is for Joint Commission-accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals, and ambulatory surgery centers seeking to elevate the quality, consistency, and safety of their services and patient care.

What does this mean for you? It means your injury or condition gets the focused expertise it needs – with options for advanced treatment not available anywhere else. More often than not, these options don’t involve surgery. But when surgery is required, our team stands apart with minimally invasive solutions that reduce your pain and recovery time.

The Erlanger Difference Is Academic

Our orthopaedic surgeons serve as faculty of the University of Tennessee College of Medicine, one of the most successful academic programs in the nation. We are the region’s only teaching orthopaedic program. This puts you in touch with more breakthrough techniques and clinical trials – all firmly supported by the rigorous standards of evidence-based medicine. At Erlanger, you receive care from experts who train tomorrow’s doctors, and who research tomorrow’s techniques. Talk with us about the best surgery or treatment options for your knee, hip, foot, ankle, hand, or fracture.
