Thomas E. Tompkins, MD

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement Specialist

BIO

I am a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon affiliated with Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance and began my practice in 1986.


I attended Vanderbilt University on a football scholarship. After my orthopaedic residency at Vanderbilt, I completed a fellowship in total joint replacement surgery. I am a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, an organization focusing on joint replacement surgery.


I specialize in adult hip and knee replacement surgery. In addition, I have extensive experience in general orthopaedics, shoulder and arthroscopic surgery.


I served as a team physician for the U.S. Figure Skating Association and have traveled internationally with various elite teams.


My wife, Kathy, and I have five children. I enjoy traveling, cooking and golf.
