About Dr Stahlman

My Life

I am happily married to a wonderful South Carolina native. We have an active lifestyle enjoying exercise, cycling, cooking, gardening, and all manner of shooting sports. I have raced triathlon, cycling races, and have completed 2 marathons. A lifelong tinkerer, I've even designed and built several award winning bicycles from bamboo. I am also an NRA certified pistol instructor. I grew up in California but my family has a long history in Nashville. I have been in practice with Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance since 1996.
