Williamson Medical Center and the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee announced this week the addition of another skilled orthopedic specialist to the provider team at the Bone and Joint Institute.
Jim Fiechtl, M.D., who specializes in primary care orthopedics, will begin seeing new patients July 8 and will have clinic hours available in both Franklin and Thompson’s Station.
“I was attracted to Williamson Medical Center and the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee primarily because of their shared commitment to being an integral part of our community and providing outstanding healthcare for our community,” said Fiechtl, a Williamson County resident. “That patient-centered focus and collective desire to take care of all patients, treating each patient individually to the best of our ability is what drove me to this profession and this group.”
“We are excited to welcome Dr. Fiechtl to our medical staff at Williamson Medical Center,” Williamson Medical Center CEO Donald Webb said. “He shares the passion of our health system and medical staff for providing exceptional care and an outstanding patient experience. It is the expertise of our providers and the outstanding patient-centered care we provide that leads patients to choose us first.”
Fiechtl treats patients with all types of sports injuries, including concussions, and non-surgical orthopedic problems. He completed his medical training at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center and a residency program in Emergency Medicine at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. He completed a fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine at Vanderbilt University and earned a master’s of management in healthcare from the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt.
As a primary care orthopedic specialist, Fiechtl works with patients to treat their orthopedic problems with the most conservative approaches possible as well as alternative therapies like acupuncture and yoga.
“Dr. Fiechtl brings a wealth of expertise to the Bone and Joint Institute,” Bone and Joint Institute CEO Darren Harris said. “Many of the individuals who seek care with our practice will not need surgery, and Dr. Fiechtl is highly skilled in effectively managing non-surgical orthopedic problems.”
Fiechtl, who particularly enjoys working with athletes of all ages and levels, said his goal is to help patients heal and return to the activities they want to do as quickly as possible.
“That is the most gratifying part of my job,” he said.
Fiechtl is the team physician for Page High School. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family being outdoors, playing tennis and watching the St. Louis Cardinals. He also enjoys volunteering through their church.
