Dr. Cole is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing treatment of the hand, wrist and elbow. He treats all ages and makes himself available for urgent care appointments. While Dr. Cole is trained to care for the most complex upper extremity problems, no issue is too simple. Non-surgical treatment can lead to healing for many conditions and surgery is needed only in select cases. New surgical innovation and mini-open techniques are available for many problems such as carpal tunnel and thumb arthritis.

Following the lead of the late Dr. Bill Bourland, Dr. Cole continues to support and nurture a strong team approach at the OrthoSouth Hand Center at Briarcrest. This includes a close working relationship with the 3 on-site hand therapists. For a hand, wrist or elbow problem, see the right physician…right away. If Dr. Cole is out of the office, the Hand Center has two other hand surgeons available to help out.   

Dr. Cole served as the 2011 President of the Tennessee Orthopaedic Society and in keeping with his strong love of Memphis and children’s charities, he served as the 2016 President of Carnival Memphis. Away from the office, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his family and friends. He is a frustrated golfer but won’t give up the game any time soon.
