Accepting new patients

I have been fortunate to practice Orthopedic Surgery in Bowling Green since 2000, having lived away for several years in Nashville and St. Louis for school and training. My practice has been extremely rewarding since then, literally helping thousands of people over the years. My partners and I strive to make your experience in our office as seamless as possible, as we realize dealing with medical issues can be a hardship. My wife and I are from Bowling Green and have two wonderful children, unfortunately now grown adults. We love this community and plan on staying for years to come. Welcome to my Healthgrades site--I look forward to assisting you with your Orthopedic problems!...See Less

in Bowling Green, KY |
Dr. Patton is a great orthopedic surgeon. He's treated me for an Achilles' tendon repair, MRSA infection and 2 total knee replacements. I strongly recommend him to all of my friends. Often in physical therapy I'll talk with people who are rehabbing a knee replacement. I have noticed on multiple occasions that my post -op is going much better than people who had different surgeons. People who I talk with are amazed at how well my recovery is going compared to theirs. He fabulous.

He was amazing during my entire ordeal w/hip replacement surgery in Aug, 2016. He was again wonderful when my hip dislocated in September, 2016. He truly cares, answers questions & does excellent work. I'm so thankful I chose him!
Thanks Kara! That means a great deal to me.
