Hip, Knee, and Joint Replacement Specialist
Born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama, Dr. Baird completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he gained valuable experience in diagnosing and treating injuries and disorders. He subsequently completed his fellowship in adult reconstruction of the hip and knee in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has a special interest in joint replacement surgery when nonsurgical treatment is ineffective.
What motivates Dr. Baird as a physician is the opportunity to work with patients of all ages and provide care that helps them resume the activites they enjoy.
His interests outside of work primarily involve outdoor activities, including hunting, fishing, and running.

"Everyone was exceptionally helpful and pleasant to deal with. Congratulations for building a great team!" -- Bruce K.
"The first time that I was seen at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., was when I was in the third grade at J.E Turner Elementary. I was playing outside on the playground and fell off of the monkey bars. My mom took me to the ER at Providence and they referred me to this group. I got a small pink cast, my very first one ever. I saw Dr. Taylor. The second time that I was referred to your group was when I was in the fourth grade. We had went to the firework display at MGM High School where I again was playing on the playground at the park behind the school with my brother. He was pushing me back and forth on the sliding bars and pushed a little too hard. I fell off of the bars and broke my elbow. I went to see Dr. Baird this time. I like going to the office in Airport. The staff there are the friendliest people that you could ever meet and make the whole awful experience into something fun." -- Brianna W.
