Dr. Cole is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with a certificate of added qualification in hand surgery. He treats problems from the shoulder to the fingertip and routinely makes himself available for urgent care evaluation of acute injuries. Dr. Cole served as the 2011 President of the Tennessee Orthopaedic Society (TOS). During that time, the TOS was awarded the State Society of the Year Award by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Dr. Cole is involved in the Memphis non-profit scene and previously served as the 2016 President of Carnival Memphis.
