"The medical community is constantly seeking new methods to better care for those in need. Research in joint replacement not only improves the quality of care we can offer our own patients, but when shared with the national and international community, this commitment to innovation improves care for all joint replacement patients."
Dr. Morrison joined SJRI in August of 2002 after completing his Otto Aufranc Fellowship in Adult Reconstructive Surgery at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. The program provides specialty training joint replacement surgery.
As a surgery resident at Vanderbilt Medical Center from 1996 until 2001, Dr. Morrison was recognized as an outstanding resident in the education of medical students by the Vanderbilt General Surgery Department. Drs. Christie and DeBoer had the opportunity to work closely with Dr. Morrison during his residency.
Although Dr. Morrison has a special interest in joint replacement surgery, he provides surgical care to patients with a broad array or orthopaedic injuries and conditions including arthroscopic surgery and trauma.
