Holston Medical Group (HMG) announced today the opening of the HMG Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic located in Sapling Grove, 240 Medical Park Blvd., Suite 1500, Bristol, TN, to bring high-quality, cost-effective orthopedic and sports medicine specialty care to Bristol.
HMG’s new clinic provides convenient, walk-in access to orthopedic and sports medicine providers as well as advanced diagnostic outpatient care and physical therapy. The clinic is the organization’s latest physician-owned and led service to be offered in the Bristol community. Soon to follow will be the Renaissance Surgery Center re-opening which is planned for this month at Bristol West located in the Pinnacle.
“In effort to provide much needed access to patient-centric, orthopedic resources to the Bristol community, we are working to develop services that can deliver high quality care at a low cost,” said Scott Fowler, M.D., FACOG, president and CEO, HMG. “The addition of the orthopedic and sports medicine walk-in clinic and outpatient surgery center will support this effort.”
Alongside current HMG orthopedic and sports medicine providers – Lindsay Remy, M.D., sports orthopedic surgeon; Ashraf Youssef, M.D., orthopedic hand surgeon; and Emily Campbell, M.D., sports medicine physician – Brain Scardo, PA-C, orthopedic physician assistant, has joined the team at HMG, also providing care at the new orthopedic clinic. A Bristol native, Scardo is an experienced interventional radiology technician turned orthopedic physician assistant.
“I love that I am able to work with patients in need of quick relief, helping them with their issues early on,” said Scardo. “It’s satisfying to see their progress and work with them over time. I am excited to be a part of delivering convenient access to orthopedic needs in my hometown community while partnering with some of the region’s best in orthopedic and sports medicine care.”
