Dr. Tennant's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tennant "Josh grew up just outside of Greensboro, North Carolina, on his family's small farm with four younger siblings. He enjoys both sport and work that allows him to be outside, as well as involvement in his community through his church and other volunteer and service opportunities like Samaritan Health Center in Durham. He particularly enjoys spending time with his wife, Melissa, and three young boys, ages 7, 5, and 3."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tennant "As an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist, I rely both on cutting edge technology as well as tried-and-true principles of care. My focus is on foot and ankle orthopaedic surgery, although I also do general orthopaedic surgery and trauma. My favorite thing about my job is getting to know as people the patients for whom I care."
