Southern Tennessee Regional Health System Lawrenceburg officials are pleased to announce the addition of two new specialists to the medical staff. 

“It is exciting to be adding a podiatrist and pediatrician to our staff, “said hospital CEO, Adam Martin.  “It is important to have these services available in our community where patients can receive this type of specialized care right here at home.  These physicians will be a tremendous asset to the hospital and the community.”

Dr. Barksdale has joined the staff at Southern Tennessee Orthopedic & Spine Center where he will specialize in the fracture of the foot and ankle, reconstructive surgery of the foot, bunion and hammertoe treatment, congenital foot deformity correction, diabetic foot care, sports medicine, and treatment of common foot conditions such as heel pain/plantar fasciitis, ingrown toenails, corns, calluses, bone spurs, and more.

Dr. Bello has joined the staff at Southern Tennessee Pediatrics and she specializes in the care of children from infancy to eighteen years old.  Her services include preventive care, well child exams, sick visits, children’s injuries, immunizations, acute illnesses such as flu, strep, fever and ear infections, allergies, and more.  She has a particular interest in the treatment of obesity and eating disorders, asthma, and mental health care.
