When it comes to world-class orthopaedic care, Bone and Joint of Tennessee is a familiar name throughout the region, but that isn’t the only thing the physicians and providers of Bone and Joint Institute are known for. They’re also well-recognized for their deep commitment to the community.

“From having a presence on the sidelines of Williamson County football games in the fall to providing college scholarships to supporting organizations near and dear to the Bone and Joint family, giving back is part of our DNA,” said Casey Davidson, M.D., orthopaedic surgeon and physician chair of the Bone and Joint Fund of the Williamson Health Foundation.

Established in 2018, Bone and Joint Institute is part of the Williamson Health family and is led by nationally recognized physicians with expertise in orthopaedic surgery, arthroscopic surgery, joint replacement, sports medicine and spinal surgery. In addition to its state-of-the-art facility on the Williamson Medical Center campus, Bone and Joint Institute also operates orthopaedic urgent care and physical therapy clinics in Brentwood, Nolensville, Thompson’s Station and West Franklin. Being involved and giving back to these communities is so important to the physicians and staff at Bone and Joint Institute.

On October 28, Bone and Joint Institute will be hosting its second annual Skeleton Gala in Liberty Hall at The Factory in Franklin. Featuring dinner, drinks, a silent auction and dancing to the dynamic band Burning Las Vegas, the black-tie Skeleton Gala has quickly emerged as Bone and Joint Institute’s primary fundraiser. Funds raised from the event benefit the Bone and Joint Fund of the Williamson Health Foundation.

“We don’t just provide services to the community….we are part of the community,” said Davidson. “Our team loves being able to help great organizations that serve the area, support local students and also honor our late founder Dr. Craig Ferrell.”

One of the primary beneficiaries of the Skeleton Gala is the Craig Ferrell Memorial Scholarship fund. Named in honor of Dr. Ferrell, these scholarships are given to Williamson County high school students who are pursuing a college degree in health sciences. Other organizations who have benefited from the Bone and Joint Fund include Friends of Franklin Parks, Brightstone, Forrest Spence Fund, Deer Run Camps & Retreats and A Vintage Affair.

“The response to our inaugural event last year was tremendous, and we are looking forward to a bigger and better event this year to be able to continue to support the communities where we live and work,” said Davidson.

 Tickets for the 2023 event are still available at $275 per person. More information can be found at
