Dr. Brian Coleman

Dr. Brian Coleman, an orthopedic surgeon with HCA Florida Atlantis Orthopedics, has been installed as the president of the T. Leroy Jefferson Medical Society, a professional organization that focuses on helping underserved populations in the community by promoting health education programs, youth mentoring programs, speakers on health issues, as well as health fair medical screenings for school children and adults. The organization also provides scholarships for deserving students and other healthcare, education and youth development services.

“I am honored to join such an esteemed organization comprised of some of the most prominent healthcare leaders in this state,” Coleman said. “This collective has accomplished so much to address the disparity of healthcare in our minority communities here in Palm Beach County in the last 15 years.”

Coleman said there is still much to do to elevate what he calls “the best-kept secret in Palm Beach County,” and in his position as president, he hopes to increase transparency and communication with political leaders in the state while generating significant community and corporate support for the society’s various programs.

Coleman is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, with expertise in foot and ankle surgery, sports medicine, fracture repair/reconstruction and gait analysis. He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society. He was recently honored by Legacy Magazine as one of South Florida’s top black healthcare professionals for 2022.
