      Dr Hearon and his staff provided excellent care. I am very happy with the results of my carpal tunnel surgery and would highly recommend Dr Hearon.

      Dr. Hearon and his staff were awesome to work with. From my shoulder surgery all the way through the long 6 month recovery period. I had minimal if any discomfort at any point. And the rehab, although long, was conducted very professionally with my PT. Hope I never have to see them professionally again LOL, but they are all great people!? Show less

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Hearon's Care Philosophy

      Dr. Hearon is committed to delivering the best possible orthopaedic care to his patients using nonoperative methods and the latest proven surgical techniques. As a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), his practice philosophy is consistent with the Principles of Medical Ethics and Professionalism advocated by the AAOS. The tenets of his practice philosophy are as follows: (1) Provide individualized, patient-centered care. (2) Educate and empower patients. Patients and family members are educated regarding diagnosis and treatment options. (3) Conservative treatment first. Elective surgical treatment for non-emergent orthopaedic problems is always the option of last resort. (4) Establish realistic expectations. Patients should thoroughly understand the expected results of treatment. (5) Optimize care delivery. Care is delivered in a compassionate manner, respecting the patient and patient privacy at all times.
