"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." Originally from Texas, Dr. Morrison came to Nashville in 1996 for his orthopaedic residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He completed his training in 2001 and was recognized as an outstanding resident in the education of medical students by the Vanderbilt General Surgery Department. 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, MA. This program provides specialty training in joint replacement surgery. Dr. Morrison has authored several articles and book chapters in leading joint replacement publications. He lectures nationally and internationally. His expertise is in primary and revision replacement surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder.
