Biography

Jake J. Porter III, M.D., MPH, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon at Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery, earned his medical degree at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, and completed his residency at Atlanta Medical Center, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in Atlanta and a fellowship at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pittsburgh. Prior to joining the Health System, Dr. Porter presented his Master of Public Health (MPH) at the New England Science Symposium at Harvard Medical School and was inducted into the Tennessee Gamma Chapter of Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor, a rare honor for a third year medical student to receive.

When Dr. Porter isn’t researching or practicing medicine, he enjoys watching the Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldog’s games. Fascinated by the human anatomy and how it “works like a machine,” his research focuses primarily on foot and ankle surgery. After completing his fellowship training, he wanted to choose a Health System with the most advanced technology as well as a practice that kept patients’ best interest at heart. Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery’s friendly environment combined with its patient-centered approach made it a perfect match. Dr. Porter sees patients at their Brunswick and St. Simons Island locations.

Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery, a strategic affiliate of Southeast Georgia Health System, has three convenient locations. For more information, call 912-466-7340 in Brunswick, 912-466-5570 on St. Simons Island or 912-576-6355 in St. Marys.
