Parkridge Bone And Joint Opens East Brainerd Specialty Orthopedic Office With Walk-In Clinic

Monday, July 22, 2019

Parkridge Bone & Joint has opened a full-service orthopedic office and walk-in clinic in East Brainerd. Located at 1510 Gunbarrel Road, Suite 120, the office joins Parkridge Bone & Joint locations in Hixson and downtown Chattanooga to create a network of specialty orthopedic clinics throughout the city. 

"Board-certified physicians Martin Redish, MD; Chris Pankiw, MD; and physician assistant Lauren Milleville, PA-C, provide comprehensive orthopedic treatment options and are now accepting new patient appointments," officials said.  "While nonsurgical strategies are frontline options for many patients, Drs. Redish and Pankiw provide surgical care at Parkridge Medical Center and Parkridge East Hospital. An on-site walk-in clinic allows patients with non-emergent injuries to receive specialty care with no appointment necessary."

“Orthopedic injuries can significantly affect quality of life, and it’s important for our community to have access to the highest-quality orthopedic care,” said Dr. Pankiw, an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hand and upper extremity conditions. “As a native of Soddy Daisy, I’m proud to offer expanded access to specialty care here within the greater Chattanooga area.”

The new location offers state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, six updated treatment rooms and a completely renovated office space.

“Patient satisfaction is among our chief priorities,” said Dr. Redish, a founding member of Parkridge Bone & Joint and leading practitioner of minimally invasive partial knee replacement. “From the friendly front-office staff and a supportive environment to leading-edge treatment, we want to make sure our patients receive the care they need from providers who are committed to helping them achieve their goals.”
