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."

I've had a total knee replacement in 2016, before the surgery Dr Lawrence asked me if he could say a prayer with me, and I knew then I was in GOD'S hands. I would recommend him highly. I had a scope done my shoulder. Dr Lawrence, thank you so much for everything. Mrs Jackson.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lawrence's for 20+ years. He has treated various conditions and has done arthroscopic surgery on my knee and repaired a completely torn rotator cuff with great success. Dr. Lawrence has always been patient, kind and compassionate. He takes the time to explain things...more

I've been seen by Dr. Lawrence for a shattered elbow and rotator cuff/shoulder injury. Dr. Lawrence is very professional and takes time to explain everything and answer any questions which is rare to find. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Lawrence.
