Dr. Ragon 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 grew up in Jackson and was class valedictorian at Jackson Christian. He served four years in the U.S. Navy where he was stationed in Guam and Pensacola, Florida, before joining West Tennessee Bone & Joint. He and his wife, Amy, have two children, Will and Jane Claire.
