Dr. Patton's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Patton "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!"

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!
