Celebrating Veterans at BJISG!

Honoring All Veterans… Past, Present, Future & Our Very Own!!!

We wanted to take this time to sincerely thank all Veterans for everything you’ve done for us individually and as a nation! The Bone & Joint Institute of South Georgia is blessed to have five Veterans on staff including: Dr. Matthew Valosen (Army), Dr. Amber Aragon (Army), Angela Roberts (Air Force & Army), Ceci Mook (Army) & Rhonda Landon (Navy).

Dr. J. Matthew Valosen joined the Bone and Joint Institute of South Georgia (BJISG) after beginning his career as a U.S. Army Orthopaedic Surgeon. He was previously the Chief of Orthopaedic Surgical Services at Winn Army Community Hospital in Ft. Stewart, GA. 

During his military service at Ft. Stewart, Dr. Valosen became the chief of the orthopaedic surgical clinic, was deployed to Iraq where he was awarded the Bronze Star, and implemented many advances in specialty musculoskeletal care for the Army soldier.

In 2001, Dr. Aragon joined the U.S. Army under the Health Professions Scholarship Program. She earned her M.D. degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN, in 2004, where she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, and graduated first in her class.

Dr. Aragon served five years at Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart, two years of which she served as chief of the orthopaedic surgery service. She was deployed to Afghanistan in 2013 as the only trauma orthopaedic surgeon of a forward surgical team.
