Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance (TOA), of Nashville, Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics (TOC), of Knoxville, and Mid-Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic (MTBJ), of Columbia, have combined under the name Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance (TOA), making TOA one of the largest networks of orthopedic care providers in the country.

The three Tennessee-based orthopedic practices joined to usher in a new era of orthopedic care that is centered around providing greater access and delivering expert orthopedic services to meet their patient’s unique and evolving needs.

Combined, the group has 107 physicians and a staff of more than 800, with 27 locations in 17 counties, serving patients from the Great Smoky Mountains in Sevierville to the Tennessee River in Waverly. In addition, the combined group offers 11 orthopedic urgent cares, providing a valuable alternative to the emergency room in each community they serve.

“Three years ago, we decided to take a step forward in a partnership with TOC and MTBJ, with the ultimate goal of becoming a unified TOA. I’m excited to announce that this goal has come to fruition beginning January 1, 2024,” said Rob Simmons, TOA chief executive officer.

“Combining the strengths and talents of our providers in these three markets, will allow us to enhance our patient’s access to quality orthopedic care and keep TOA at the forefront of innovative sub-specialty orthopedics across the many communities in the Middle Tennessee and East Tennessee markets.”

Serving patients in Columbia and Middle Tennessee, Mid-Tennessee Bone and Joint Clinic is devoted to the quality care and health of patients through focused attention on their orthopedic well-being. Founded in 1975 in Columbia, Tennessee, Mid-Tennessee Bone and Joint Clinic provides a complete range of orthopedic services including the treatment of fractures, total joint replacement, arthroscopic surgery, spinal surgery and sports medicine.

Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics has provided orthopedic excellence in East Tennessee for over 20 years with 32 board-eligible/board-certified physicians and locations in Knoxville, Lenoir City, Oak Ridge and Sevierville.
