Having been the region’s bone, joint, and muscle experts since 1997, our specialty-trained doctors, surgeons, and medical staff strive to keep Appalachian Orthopedics as one of the best orthopedic practices with top doctors and surgeons. Our roots as a Tri-Cities institution of exceptional orthopedic care go back more than 50 years, when Dr. Sam Huddleston and Dr. Robert Strang, Sr., were the first orthopedic doctors in those cities, and since the late 1990s, when three separate offices merged to form Appalachian Orthopedics, our goals have always been to provide patients with the specialized care they can trust and to deliver the compassionate, individualized orthopedic care patients deserve.

At Appalachian Orthopedics, we know that injuries occur when least expected. That’s why our doctors and physician assistants proudly offer extended clinic hours for patients with acute orthopedic injuries at our OrthoAccess Walk-In Clinic with no appointment necessary.

Available at Bristol Midway, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Johnson City, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Kingsport, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., our providers and physician assistants at our OrthoAccess Walk-In Clinic are able to provide sports medicine care and treat sprains, fractures, and injuries of the knee, hip, and more.

At Appalachian Orthopedics, we specialize in keeping patients active.
