Professional-Fully Met My Expectation

I am a hockey player and I injured my shoulder playing May 27th 2016. Dr. Garside knows sports. He knows hockey. I am back on the ice in 5 months. I still have few more months of strengthening but should be back to same-level of play where I was playing prior to the injury.


The process worked like clockwork. MRI, surgery, rehabilitation and follow ups. All professional-fully met my expectation. I highly recommend Dr. Garside. Especially for sports injuries.

High Praise for TOA Franklin Physical Therapy Team

"I recently had the experience of attending Physical therapy at TOA Franklin Physical Therapy. I would like to compliment the staff at this facility, Angela Whittaker, Jill Gruenke, and Austin McCarthy, for the excellent care and treatment that I received. As a retired Physical Therapist myself, with over 30 years experience, I was very impressed by their clinical knowledge and expertise. I will require additional orthopedic surgery in the coming months and look forward to once again attending Physical Therapy at this facility."

A picture is worth a thousand words

My daughter, Jaden, dancing en pointe as Clara in the Nutcracker just a few years after Dr. Yu performed surgery to remove an extra bone in her foot. If you have any questions about the skill of Dr. Yu; a picture is worth a thousand words. What the picture does not show is the level of compassion and patient education he showed through the whole process!

Thank you, Dr. Yu.

Second knee replacement this year, great outcome. Thank you, Dr. Burton.

Dr. Burton,


Thank you for the second time this year for the great outcome I have had with my knee replacement. It will be seven weeks tomorrow since surgery and I am just almost back to normal. I am absolutely amazed at how fast and how well this one has gone! The first one went well, but this one has been even better. I think having the other knee in good shape and knowing what to expect probably helped, but I really have had very little pain or soreness this time once I got over the initial swelling.


I can actually walk without thinking about every step I take because of the pain. I can sit in the floor with my legs straight out in front of me. It has been years since I could do that! I can go shopping and stand in line with no pain. Until someone has lived with pain that affects your quality of everyday life, they really have no idea what a difference it makes. I will say I believe it also depends on the person and how determined they are to get better. It would be very easy to just sit back and do as little as possible, especially for the first couple of weeks after surgery, but I have been and still am determined to have the best outcome possible.

Also, Sarah has been great throughout this whole process to answer any questions I had regarding surgery, medications, etc. She’s awesome! I was also impressed with St. Thomas Midtown. I was treated well there and felt like I received quality, compassionate care.


I know I will be seeing you again, but just wanted to be sure I told you just how much I appreciate all you have done for me once again.

Best regards,

- Kathy Reece

"After nine surgeries, I can say that your team is unparalleled."

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the wonderful staff at Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance. You've given me the mobility to enjoy life two times, and both were pressuring circumstances. After nine surgeries, I can say that your team is unparalleled.
