G. Brian Holloway, M.D.

Shoulder Surgery Specialist



Dr. G. Brian Holloway began his practice at Knoxville Orthopaedic Clinic in 1998 after finishing his shoulder fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Holloway came to Knoxville as the first fellowship trained shoulder specialist. As a shoulder specialist, he is particularly experienced with rotator cuff tears, the arthritic shoulder, instability of the shoulder, and sports injuries of the shoulder. He has been performing arthroscopic repair of the shoulder for over 20 years and performs about 100 shoulder replacements per year.

Dr. Holloway is a frequent presenter at various orthopaedic conferences on the shoulder. He is an instructor for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons on open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Dr. Holloway has also had numerous articles and studies published in various medical journals. He is also a co-inventor of a novel shoulder prosthesis that maximizes bone preservation.

Dr. Holloway was elected as a member of the prestigious American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons in 2014. He is one of only a few surgeons in the East Tennessee area to receive this honor. The American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) is an invitation-only society made up of leading national and international orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in surgery of the shoulder and elbow. The association is an educational body responsible for the development of scientific programs, organization of current knowledge, standardization of nomenclature, and publication of scientific materials.

Dr. Holloway’s wife Kathy is a physician with Knoxville Pediatric Associates. They have two children. In his spare time, Dr. Holloway enjoys running, cycling, golf and boating. He has completed several marathons and completed a full and half Ironman competition.

What patients say about Dr. holloway

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can continue doing the job that I love as a school resource officer in regards to keeping staff and children safe through the day in order for them to be able to learn and grow. December 03, 2018, while enjoying some time with my grandchildren, I fell while having fun and roller skating at the age of 58. On January 24, 2019, Dr. Holloway did my rotator cuff surgery which required (9) anchors due to the extent of my injury. After my surgery, I honestly wondered if I would ever be normal again and return to the job I love. I was told that an injury such as mine can take up to a year to fully recover from. Dr. Holloway immediately assigned my physical therapy after surgery where I was fortunate to meet two great ladies, Katie and Tammy. I can't say enough about these ladies and actually all the staff at the Old Weisgarber location. With their help and encouragement I was able to return to my job after approximately two and a half months. The positive and reassuring outlook of these two ladies made me want to show up and give it my all each time. I have to be 100 percent to do the job that I do and I give all credit to Dr. Holloway and the therapy center staff to help me get back to what I do best. They have my undying gratitude.
