Sports Medicine


As an established resource for highly skilled orthopedic physicians, Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance is proud to offer a vast selection of treatment options for sports medicine in Nashville and its surrounding communities. Our very own Dr. A. Brant “Pinky” Lipscomb served as a team physician for the athletic department at Vanderbilt for more than 43 years. Not only did Dr. Lipscomb earn a reputation as the pioneer in making this type of medicine a widely accepted specialty, but he has also had a significant impact on TOA's sports therapy programs.
