Upson Regional Medical Center has announced the addition of a new orthopedic surgeon to its medical staff.
A native Georgian, Dr. Brandon Boyce will have offices in Thomaston and Barnesville and will begin seeing patients August 15.
“A community and service area our size will definitely benefit from an additional orthopedic surgeon,” said David Castleberry chief executive officer. “Having a new practice and new specialist will better prepare us for the increased demand we expect as the population in our service area ages.”
Dr. Boyce comes to Upson with an impressive list of accomplishments. The standout Wofford College basketball player already holds several patents for orthopedic medical devices he developed over the course of his academic career.
After earning his Doctorate of Medicine from the Medical College of Georgia in 2005, Dr. Boyce completed his Residency in Orthopedic Surgery at West Virginia University Medical School in 2011. Most recently, Dr. Boyce was one of two chosen for the elite Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship with the Aspen Sports Medicine Foundation.
“We welcome Dr. Boyce back to his home state of Georgia. He will help improve access to orthopedic services in our service area, and he will be particularly helpful in increasing access for patients to receive orthopedic care locally,” Castleberry said.
Dr. Boyce will have offices in Suite E of the Tyler Building on 612 W. Gordon St. in Thomaston and Suite 206 of the Barnesville Medical Office Building at 100 Hwy. 18 West in Barnesville. For an appointment, call 706-647-3030 or 770-358-1860.
“I look forward to the opportunity to provide the highest quality, cutting-edge orthopedic care to the people of Upson and surrounding counties,” Dr. Boyce said. “More importantly, my wife, Audrey, and I are looking forward to becoming a part of such a wonderful and caring community.”
