Hometown Surgeon Completes First Outpatient Total Hip Replacement at Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee Surgery Center

The recent completion of the first outpatient anterior total hip arthroplasty at Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee Surgery Center in Franklin, TN, was an especially notable accomplishment for orthopaedic surgeon Brian Perkinson, M.D., one of the center’s twelve surgeon-owners.

The procedure opened the door to serve growing demand in the area for total hip surgeries in an outpatient setting, but also had personal significance for Dr. Perkinson.

“I’m from Franklin, I grew up in this town,” he explains. “I’ve had the good fortune to be able to come back and practice with the orthopaedic group that took care of me when I was a kid. To be a part of bringing this cutting-edge technology and an amazing facility to my hometown, serving my own family and friends, has been a blessing in my life and a milestone in my career.”

Still in its first year of operation, Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee Surgery Center is a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center (ASC) just 17 miles from Nashville. While growing up, Perkinson’s father was a banker in Franklin and his mom, a teacher in the local high school. Perkinson is an accomplished orthopaedic surgeon, having completed approximately 250 total hip procedures annually at the hospital, about 20% of them on an outpatient basis, over the past 4-5 years.
