Dr. Heather Taillac is a board-eligible, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in upper extremity surgery. She is excited to bring her expertise to help patients return to work, caring for their families, and doing the things they love.


Dr. Taillac grew up in Franklin, TN. She received her medical degree in 2016 at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, LA, where she was honored to serve as Administrative Chief Resident in her final year. She then completed a fellowship in upper extremity surgery at the University of Florida under the mentorship of Drs. Paul Dell and Thomas Wright.


In addition to general orthopedics, she will be providing specialized care for a wide range of conditions affecting the upper extremity, including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren’s disease, trigger finger, soft tissue injuries, fractures, sports-related injuries, nail bed injuries, nerve and tendon lacerations, and more.


Outside of work, Dr. Taillac is a mom, wife, artist, and equestrian. She enjoys painting, competing in showjumping events, and spending time with her family.
