Terrebonne General Medical Center has welcomed a new doctor to its team.
Dr. Nathan Patrick has been announced as part of TGMC's orthopaedic staff.
Dr. Patrick is fellowship trained in hand, wrist, shoulder and elbow surgery.
He's a graduate from the University of Toledo with the highest honors, summa cum laude. Dr. Patrick says his motivation and enthusiasm for medicine allowed him early acceptance into medical school at the University of Toledo, an accolade reserved for only a select few candidates.
He completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Penn State in Pennsylvania where he was chosen to serve as the Academic Chief during his final years of training.
Following residency, he then went on to complete two additional years of fellowship training in hand and upper extremity surgery at both the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Rochester in New York – training under renowned surgeons.
Dr. Patrick has been involved with numerous research projects and new developments in hand and upper extremity surgery, and TGMC President and CEO Phyllis Peoples said he will be a huge asset to TGMC's team.
“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Patrick to Houma,” said Phyllis Peoples, President and CEO. “His immense experience in hand and upper extremity surgery will be a true asset to our medical staff and community.”
Dr. Patrick is excited to move to South Louisiana with his wife, a plastic surgeon, and begin caring for our community. Dr. Patrick’s interests include: spending time with his family, hiking, traveling, CrossFit, and New Orleans sports. He is also committed to caring for the underserved in our community and will be involved in many outreach opportunities. He will practice at Gulf Coast Orthopedics in Houma.
