Married with 6 children, Dr. Young is originally from Texarkana, but he and many members of his extended family now call Birmingham home. While he focuses on a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and the surgeries to treat them, his background as a former athlete has led to a particular interest in sports medicine.

“We place a high value on the trust that is given to us by our patients. We see our patients’ involvement in their own care as critical to the healing process, and we value their opinion as much as they value ours. It’s a partnership.”
