Experience Matters

Dr. Gautsch has performed the most successful, computer assisted, muscle-sparing, minimally-invasive, outpatient Total Knee Replacement surgeries in Middle Tennessee [more than all others combined]. Dr. Gautsch has now performed over 10,000 successful surgeries, over 15,000 procedures!

Technique Matters

Dr. Gautsch’s unique rotator cuff suture technique remains the strongest in formal testing of arthroscopic shoulder repairs. College athletes and others continue to seek Dr. Gautsch for highly successful arthroscopic shoulder labral and instability repair, and arthroscopic knee cartilage and ACL surgery.

Location Matters

The Indian Lake Surgery Center, with state-of-the-art Operating Rooms, designed by Dr. Gautsch, has hosted more outpatient Knee Replacement patients than any other Middle Tennessee surgery center. BlueCross BlueShield has reached an agreement with Indian Lake Surgery Center to be one of their first PREFERRED Outpatient Surgery Centers for Joint Replacement and other surgeries. This includes all BlueCross BlueShield and Anthem patients from across the country.
