Hughston Clinic VisionWe are, and will continue to be, a nationally and internationally recognized center of excellence for research, education and training and quality treatment of musculoskeletal injury and disease.
The human musculoskeletal system is a truly astounding mechanism.
Made up of the body’s bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and other connective tissue, the musculoskeletal system’s primary functions include supporting the body in an upright position, allowing motion and locomotion and protecting vital organs, such as the brain and heart. The skeletal system also serves as the main storage system for vital minerals, like calcium and phosphorus, and contains the critical components of the body’s blood supply.
Keeping or restoring the human musculoskeletal system to its best possible condition is what Hughston Clinic is all about. The doctors who make up this unique practice have devoted their lives to the study of orthopaedics and the treatment of musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital conditions. In fact, few institutions anywhere in the world have assembled and sustained this level of talent in orthopaedic medicine.
Since we were founded in 1949, Hughston Clinic has sought to provide the most advanced orthopaedic services available to men, women and children of all ages and all walks of life. Today, Hughston Clinic comprises a number of leading institutions for the diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic conditions, as well as orthopaedic research, education and training.
Orthopaedic services are offered under the Hughston Orthopaedic Clinic and include specialized practice areas in spine, hand, joint, sports medicine and trauma. These are, in turn, supported by Hughston Diagnostics, which provides ultrahigh-resolution imaging through a 1.5 Tesla GE MRI machine; Hughston Sports, a state-of-the-art exercise and training facility; and Hughston Rehabilitation, an advanced physical therapy facility providing focused care in four specialty departments: Orthopaedics/Sports Medicine, Spine, Upper Extremity/Hands and Industrial Medicine.
Hughston Clinic also operates a network of 25+ orthopaedic clinics in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Indiana.
