Dr. Lawrence's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lawrence " I was born in Nashville and grew up in Memphis. My desire to become a physician started with my reading the missionary stories of Drs David Livingstone and Albert Schweitzer. I have been blessed with a lovely wife of over 30 years as well as three children. My passion in life is not just the care and treatment of the physical body through advanced orthopedic surgery but also the holistic care of my patients; physically, emotionally, and spiritually in Nashville and around the world on various mission fields."
