Orthopedic Surgery | Male | 48 years old

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!Read more

Very rude
in Bowling Green, KY |
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.

Dr. Patton's Care Philosophy

I seek to provide appropriate care for your Orthopedic issues, hopefully by nonsurgical approaches. If appropriate, surgery may be considered if necessary.

Dr. Patton says...

Half of my practice deals with joint replacement procedures and arthritis.  

I have performed anterior total hip replacements since 2009 and have found this procedure to be more beneficial to the patient in terms of quicker recovery and less pain when compared with the more traditional posterior approach.  I perform approximately 100 anterior hip replacements per year.

I also perform total and partial knee replacements frequently and have done so since 2000 when I started my practice in Orthopedic Surgery.  I average 200 of these procedures per year.  

Most patients are able to leave the hospital after a one night stay and go home to receive additional therapy.

Shoulder replacements are a smaller part of my practice, but this procedure along with reverse shoulder replacement for rotator cuff problems and fractures are procedures I have been performing for several years.

Dr. Patton says...

Anterior hip replacement 

Total and partial knee replacement 

Shoulder rotator cuff repair

Knee arthroscopic surgery and ACL repair

Fracture repair

Bunion correction and other foot surgeries
