W. Stan Ragon, Jr., M.D., West Tennessee Bone and Joint Clinic’s newest orthopedic surgeon, will begin treating patients in the outpatient satellite clinic at Bolivar General Hospital, 650 Nuckolls Rd., in September.
Dr. Ragon, who is Board Certified in Orthopedic Surgery, joined West Tennessee Bone and Joint Clinic in August.
