LOUISA, Ky. – Orthopaedic care from Marshall Health is now available five days a week in Louisa, Kentucky, thanks to a new partnership between Marshall Orthopaedics and Three Rivers Medical Center.

Akshay Goel, M.D., has been named an assistant professor in the department of orthopaedic surgery at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. Goel, a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon, cares for patients with a variety of orthopaedic conditions, including arthritis, fractures, sports-related injuries and more. He is experienced in total joint replacement, minimally invasive surgery and arthroscopy. 

"We are thrilled to add Dr. Goel as a full-time faculty member of Marshall Orthopaedics,” said Ali Oliashirazi, M.D., chair of the department of orthopaedic surgery at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “As a result of this partnership, Three Rivers Medical Center has demonstrated its commitment to providing high quality orthopaedic care to patients in the greater Louisa community.”
