Providing Comprehensive and Personalized Orthopaedic Care

Joint pain in your knees or shoulders can be incredibly disruptive to your life. Not only can pain interrupt your daily activities, but you might also find yourself worried about what’s causing your pain and what you can do to improve it, or worried about long-term effects. After all, knees and shoulders allow you to bend, reach, and walk comfortably—pain can disrupt your activities and may make you worried about what will happen down the road.

Maybe you’ve heard that you need to visit a specialist, but still find yourself wondering what kind of doctor to see for shoulder pain or what doctor treats knee pain. Choosing a shoulder or knee specialist in Memphis, TN—especially for surgery—can be overwhelming and frightening. You need to find someone well qualified and skilled, but also empathetic and welcoming—you need an orthopedic clinic ready to see you as a person, not just a patient.

One way that we do this is by approaching each of our patients holistically. At Titan Orthopedics, we see each person as a full and complete individual.
