About Dr. Jonathan A. Isbell

I went to medical school knowing I wanted to specialize in orthopaedics. I was intrigued by orthopaedics and sports medicine in particular because I loved helping active people continue doing the things they enjoy. Being able to have such a profound impact on someone’s life is a very gratifying line of work.

My success comes from helping my patients return to doing the activities they enjoy without pain or limitations. The relationships that are developed and multidisciplinary, teamwork approach utilized are especially satisfying.

When I began searching for a place to begin my career, my wife and I knew we wanted to stay close to home. Southlake Orthopaedics has a very strong reputation having served this community for many years and offered a fantastic location and opportunity to begin my career. I’m excited to be a part of Southlake Orthopaedics and help grow their already stellar reputation.
