New Chattanooga Bone and Joint Center represents a new landmark
in the care and convenience of orthopaedic patients in Chattanooga
and surrounding region. Located at 1809 Gunbarrel Road between
the Women's East Pavilion and Memorial Atrium, the Orthopaedic
Center encompasses nearly 13,000 square feet and will serve
as the main offices of Chattanooga Bone and Joint Surgeons,
P.C. While also including Stubbs Prosthetics and Orthotics and
Benchmark Physical Therapy. It can be easily accessed from I-75
on either the East Brainerd or Shallowford Road exits.
Bone and Joint Center will be the first of it's kind in Chattanooga
to offer complete orthopaedic, orthotic/prosthetic and physical
therapy services under one roof. It's inception can be traced
to Dr. Martin Redish, the founder of Chattanooga Bone and Joint
Surgeons which also includes Dr.'s Bruce Short, John Nash and
"Dr. Redish talked about building a free standing office
on Gunbarrel Road the first day I met him", recalls Dr.
Short" six years later his vision, though modified and
hopefully enhanced by his partners, has now been realized".
"By combining multiple services with easy access, convenient
parking and a comfortable setting Chattanooga Bone and Joint
Center was entirely and specifically designed for the orthopaedic
patient," notes Dr. John Nash. "One particularly nice
feature is the weather protected front door drive and drop off
capability for the patient and easy single level parking for
the drivers" he adds. Dr. Redish also points out, "The
waiting room was intentionally oversized to provide maximum
comfort for the patients to whom comfort is difficult to come
Not to be minimized is the aspect of obtaining orthopaedic care,
physical therapy and orthotic/prosthetic services at a single
location. "Quite often the mobility of an orthopaedic patient
is severely hampered," notes Dr. Bruce "and combining
these services at a single location should prove highly advantageous
and convenient for the patient".
