Philosophy:

Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Roger C. Sessions, MD, and the staffs at the ETMC First Physicians clinics in Henderson and Jacksonville are pleased to be able to make a difference in the lives of those they touch. “We’ve always tried to provide the most up-to-date care possible but in a small-town atmosphere so folks can stay near home to get their orthopedic care.”
Dr. Sessions finds fulfillment in helping people recover from injuries and fractures, and he takes particular interest in the senior population. “What I enjoy the most is being able to use joint replacement surgery to change the lives of people who are suffering terribly from arthritis. It’s just a real blessing.”
Computer navigation, one of the latest surgical innovations available at ETMC facilities in Jacksonville and Henderson, is being used by Dr. Sessions to aid in knee replacement procedures. “Computer navigation is becoming the standard of care for knee replacements, and fortunately we’ve been able to get the support from ETMC to do surgery this way. Services like these have really improved the care we can provide.”
