Dr. Chandler is among a select number of physicians in the United States who are trained in the Oxford uni-compartmental knee system. The Oxford system is less invasive than regular knee implants, reduces recovery time and improves mobility after surgery. It also is the only FDA-approved, free floating, meniscal uni-compartmental knee system available in the United States.

He has been practicing at Bone & Joint Specialists, PLLC, in Paris, Tenn., since he started the clinic in 2000. A Paris native, Dr. Chandler is proud to serve his hometown. With his affiliation with West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic, he says, “patients will continue to receive the same great compassionate care from the same staff in the same location.”
