A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Joseph Cox attended Birmingham-Southern College where he majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry. After graduating Cum Laude with Honors with a Bachelor of Science, he went on to attend medical school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham followed by an Orthopaedic Residency at Wright State University in Dayton, OH. During his residency, he also did a year of research where he worked on both basic science and clinical orthopaedic studies. He completed a fellowship at the Texas Back Institute in Dallas, TX where he gained specialized training in the treatment of complex spinal pathology, minimally invasive surgical techniques, and total disc replacement. Dr. Cox has published several peer reviewed scientific articles on various orthopaedic topics, as well as a book chapter on Cervical Disc Arthroplasty. Additionally, he has spoken at national and international conferences on topics including sacroiliac joint pathology, cervical myelopathy, and the psychology of spine surgery.

Outside of work, Dr. Cox loves spending time with his family. He and his wife have a 4 year old daughter and a new-born son. They are very excited about living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast as they both love southern food and culture and being outside in the sun and water! With the new move to the coast, Dr. Cox plans to improve his basic sailing skills that he picked up in college. He also enjoys playing the guitar, golfing, and fishing in his free time.
