The practice specializes in surgical and nonsurgical treatments of sports-related and traumatic injuries of the musculoskeletal system, and serves 13 counties in South Georgia from four locations. 

 

“It’s an honor to be included in the 2015 class of the Bulldog 100. To have Bone & Joint recognized for its strengths in business from an acclaimed institution like UGA is very rewarding,” said Kenerly. “The Bulldog Top 100 is a highly sought-after accolade, and I am grateful to be among a select few UGA graduates chosen. This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Dr. J. Matt Valosen, Dr. Christopher Swanson, Scott Rowell, PA-C, and Stephen Hutcheson, PA-C.
