Physicians: Jay Cook MD

Dr. Jay B. Cook completed 9 years as a U.S. Army Orthopaedic Surgeon, during which he served as Chief of Orthopaedic and Podiatry Surgical Services at Winn Army Community Hospital in Fort Stewart, GA. 

He was also privileged for a year to be the designated physician for the 1st Battalion Army Rangers at Hunter Army Air Field. His tenure in the military has allowed him to develop well-rounded surgical skills while acquiring extensive experience with sports medicine and trauma procedures. Dr. Cook has experience treating injuries from hand to shoulder and from foot to hip, both with arthroscopic and open approaches. Upon separation from the army, he spent three years in Jesup, Georgia, where he grew even more fond of the coastal Georgia people and community. Dr. Cook subsequently joined the University of Florida to be the medical director for a new Central Florida orthopaedic practice in Leesburg, Florida. He served in this role for 2 years, blessed to be able to be close to extended family for that time before feeling that the Lord was calling his family back up to Georgia.


Dr. Cook was born in Texas to a military family and has lived in seven states and two countries, but fell in love with the south when his father was stationed at Ft. Gordon in Augusta, GA. It was there he first watched his father perform surgery and knew from then on God was calling him to be a surgeon. He graduated from Leesburg High School in Central Florida in 2001; he earned his BA degree in Religion from Furman University in Greenville, SC in 2005. Dr. Cook joined the US Army prior to medical school and upon graduating in 2009 from Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, LA he became a third generation Army physician. He completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii in 2014 and was subsequently stationed at Ft. Stewart, GA. From there he deployed to Iraq in 2015 and earned a Bronze Star. After his return, he became the Chief of Orthopaedic and Podiatry Surgical Services and was recognized multiple times for policy changes made that improved patient care, patient satisfaction, and clinic efficiency.

Dr. Cook is a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery and of the Arthroscopy Association of North America. He has had the privilege of training under some of the nation’s leaders in sports medicine injuries and arthroscopic procedures. He’s received further training in robotic joint replacement from nationally renowned instructors. His research has been published in medical journals and presented at national meetings on topics ranging from various shoulder and knee injuries to pediatric fracture care.
