Nashville Regenerative Orthopedics - Franklin, TN
Franklin, TN 37067
Nashville Regenerative Orthopedics and Dr. Ethan Kellum are pleased to announce the joining of Dr. William Newton to their staff. The addition of Dr. Newton, a Board Certified physician in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation as well as Pain Medicine, will enable the practice to expand their regenerative medicine treatments to include spine procedures.
Having practiced in the Middle Tennessee area for over 8 years, Dr. Newton has become a regional leader in interventional spine treatments. “We have limited options within our current healthcare model to address spine pain,” Newton states. “I have witnessed firsthand the impact opioids have made on patients and the community.” Dr. Newton has always practiced with a very conservative opioid philosophy and hopes that access to non-surgical, no-opioid alternatives to spine pain will aid in changing the current practice models.
A native of New York, Dr. Newton completed his Masters Degree in sports medicine from Illinois State University and acquired his Medical Degree from Midwestern University in Chicago. Dr. Newton was awarded a Health Professional Scholarship from the US Army for his medical school training, after which he completed residency in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Dr. Newton completed 7 years of service in the Army Medical Corps and served as the Assistant Chief of Physical Medicine and Pain Management at Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Augusta, GA. He was honorably discharged in 2009 with the rank of Major. While serving, Dr. Newton was awarded the Army Commendation and Meritorious Service Medals.
Dr. Newton trained at the world-renown Centeno-Schultz Regenexx clinic to bring the art of regenerative spine intervention to the region. He hopes that providing these cutting-edge procedures will provide an alternative to surgery and medications, while significantly improving function and quality of life.
Dr. Newton resides in Christiana, TN with his wife and two daughters. Much of his free time is spent on their farm or watching and supporting his daughters in their sport of equestrian competition.
