CEO Paul Korth announces retirement
February 02, 2023
Dr. Jonathon Srour gained experience in a variety of fields while completing his training in foot and ankle surgery.
Srour joins fellow foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Christopher Juels at Tier 1 Orthopedic and Neurosurgical Institute.
“I experienced an ankle injury when I was younger and had a great outcome in getting it repaired,” he said. “I went on to participate in cross country and now, Irish step dancing, among other things.”
He earned his doctor of podiatric medicine degree from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in 2017, completed residency in Washington, DC, and completed fellowships in Virginia and California.
While in Washington, DC, he was a resident physician at Medstar Washington Hospital Center and Medstar Georgetown University Hospital.
He was a limb preservation fellow at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center’s division of vascular surgery and then went on to complete a fellowship in reconstruction, revision and limb preservation surgery of the foot and ankle in Richmond, Virginia.
“As part of Medstar’s vascular surgery service, there were plastic, general and podiatric surgeons,” he said. “I got to deal with surgical wounds, which gave me a new perspective on treating ankle and foot problems.”
He had the opportunity to train with his mentor, Dr. Laurence Rubin, in his private clinic in Virginia.
While at a conference, he connected with Dr. Chris Juels, foot and ankle surgeon at Tier 1.
“I mentioned I was looking around Nashville at job opportunities,” Srour said. “He spoke about Cookeville and how great it is.”
Joining the team at Tier 1 is a dream job, he said.
“Tier 1 is an excellent orthopedic and neurosurgical group with a strong desire for excellence and delivering the best patient care,” he said. “This field requires a team approach and good communication with others to get the best outcome.”
Srour is accepting new patients. Call 931-526-9518 to set up an appointment.
QUESTION AND ANSWER WITH DR. SROUR
What is your favorite place to travel?
I have to say, Israel is amazing.
What are your hobbies?
Play music, Irish step-dancing and distance running. I toured the U.S., Canada, Taiwan and Israel with Michael Flately’s Lord of the Dance and currently a dancer/musician with Hammerstep – Indigo Grey, an innovative fusion dance septet that took America’s Got Talent by storm leading to a viral YouTube video with 250,000 views in three weeks. Hammerstep aims to elevate dance to a new level, to act as a platform for personal and collective empowerment and to spark social progression in the process.
My fiancée is the director of a music school outside of Nashville where we currently live. My parents are still in Pennsylvania, and I have two brothers.
