Dr. Blackwood graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with Highest Honors and obtained his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia where he served as class representative for the Association of American Medical Colleges. The Roswell, GA native completed residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where he received subsequent recognition of outstanding service by an Orthopaedic Surgery Resident as recognized by peers, staff, patients, or faculty. During his training, Dr. Blackwood treated patients associated with the MLB (Milwaukee Brewers) and numerous collegiate and high school athletic teams.
Dr. Blackwood completed a Foot and Ankle Fellowship in Grand Rapids, MI under the distinguished Drs. John Anderson and Donald Bohay, and John Maskill. Dr. Blackwood was fortunate enough to train under internationally recognized physicians, who are on the forefront of research and education for orthopaedic foot and ankle care.
Dr. Blackwood’s passion for orthopaedics started at a young age. The Academic All-American baseball player and 2018 Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame inductee, was drafted in the 26th round by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2005. He elected to return to Georgia Tech for his senior year in which he helped lead the Yellow Jackets to the College World Series, and is the only athlete to ever be named Mr. Georgia Tech.
From maintenance care to reconstructive surgery, Dr. Blackwood’s goal is to be the first and the last stop for your foot and ankle care.
Dr. Blackwood and his wife, Sara, have two children and are looking forward to becoming active in the Oxford community.
