We have over 70 years of experience treating athletes, providing a quick diagnosis, and getting them started on treatment immediately. We also treat weekend warriors. Being pain-free and returning to a pre-injury level of activity are two of our sports medicine treatment goals.

Patient convenience is important to us. Watauga Orthopaedics has a walk-in clinic for adult and pediatric patients needing urgent orthopedic care in all three locations. Our walk-in clinics are open from 8 am to 8 pm every weekday and from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday in our Johnson City office. Diagnostic and rehabilitation services are available on-site. Next year, we are scheduled to open the region’s only Center for Advanced Bone and Joint Surgery in Kingsport – an outpatient facility where our highly trained team of surgeons can perform advanced same-day orthopedic surgeries.
Watauga Orthopaedics is always evolving and has responded to a need for virtual care, and have expanded our offerings to include an after-hours virtual clinic. You can connect with an orthopedic specialist from anywhere for non-life-threatening conditions outside clinic hours and on weekends.
