East Tenneessee Hand Surgeon Paul Gorman MD It is with mixed emotions that I am closing Trinity Hand Specialists on 7/1/19 and retiring from solo hand practice after 14 years of treating patients at the region’s first and only hand surgical clinic. I have been privileged to have thousands of wonderful patients and have immensely cherished the clinical trust of both patients and area employers.

I presently do not know if or when I will resume working once the practice shutdown is completed in coming months but, for now, I am looking forward to enjoying more time with my immediate, extended, and church families and friends.

Please note:

  • If you need further clinical follow-up after 7/1/19, there are six other orthopaedic hand surgeons in the Tri-Cities, and all of the orthopaedic groups now provide walk-in clinics without requiring an appointment.
  • This website will remain operational at least until 12/31/19 and all further communication should be directed here – records requests and non-urgent messages. As always, call 911 or go to an emergency room for medical emergencies.
  • Your medical records are confidential, and a copy can be transferred to another physician or released to you or another person you designate only with your permission. Click here for an online authorization form.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me either online or by calling the office. If you call at a time that the office is closed (our hours will vary until 7/1/19), your message will be returned on the next business day.
