Brian M. Tonne, M.D.
Brian M. Tonne, M.D., joined University Orthopaedics in 2012. At an early age working at his family’s business on the Ohio River, Brian recognized his passion for helping people and fixing things and appreciates the opportunity to continue to do both as an orthopaedic physician today.
He graduated with honors from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio with an undergraduate degree and continued on to earn his M.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 2006. Dr. Tonne completed an internship in general surgery and a residency in orthopaedics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. He also recently completed a fellowship in orthopaedic traumatology at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Dr. Tonne specializes in pelvis and acetabular surgery, as well as intra-articular fractures around the knee and ankle. Being able to intervene and restore function to injured patients is what drives him in his daily work.
Brian routinely performs hip and knee replacements in addition to responding to traumatic musculoskeletal injuries within the Trauma Center at The University of Tennessee Medical Center. He is working towards a faculty position for UT as well as for AO, a premier organization dedicated to the improvement of care of patients through education and research.
Brian and his wife Tessa, have three children. They enjoy spending time together outdoors and for Brian, especially boating and skiing.
