August 30, 2021

OrthoSouth today welcomes Dr. Tyler W. Fraser to the practice as its newest orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon. He will see patients at the group’s clinics in Memphis (Primacy Parkway location), Germantown, and Bartlett.

A native of Arlington, Dr. Fraser earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Rhodes College and his medical degree from University of Tennessee Health Science Center. He completed his orthopedic residency at University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Chattanooga and his Foot and Ankle Fellowship at UC Davis/Reno Orthopedic Clinic before moving back to Shelby County this year to begin his specialty practice at OrthoSouth. He has authored a number of research papers on foot and ankle issues, including hindfoot and midfoot arthritis, turf toe, toe deformities, and related surgical techniques.

“We’re very proud to have Dr. Fraser join our team to fill out our foot and ankle practice,” said Dr. Owen Tabor, one of OrthoSouth’s medical directors. “It’s gratifying, too, when a physician is able to return to his home to serve the community that raised him.”

For his part, Dr. Fraser had this to say: “I’m excited to get to work, and very happy to be joining a group of doctors I’ve known and respected for a long time. Their dedication to delivering a patient experience that includes empathy, compassion, and sincerity, truly sets them apart. It feels good to be a part of that kind of team.”
