About Us

Welcome to East Tennessee Orthopedics & Sports

Who We Are

East Tennessee Orthopedics & Sports is a leading provider of orthopedic care and sports medicine throughout the region. We’ve coupled our clinical expertise with the strength of the region’s top-performing health network, Covenant Health. What does this partnership mean to you? Access to an extensive network of specialists, the latest medicines, the newest technologies and advanced treatments.

Who and What We Treat

We offer family-focused care for adolescent and adult patients. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Gregory Hoover, MD, has more than 20 years experience specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves of the body. He has even treated professional athletes around the world. 

Not every orthopedic disease or sports injury requires surgery. Dr. Hoover creates personalized treatment plans for each patient. Your plan may require only conservative treatment, such as physical therapy and pain relief injections; but if your condition is more serious, you’re in great hands at East Tennessee Orthopedics & Sports. Regardless of what your treatment plan includes, we use current best practices in medicine, advanced technologies, and the latest treatments to keep you and your family active and enjoying life.
