Learn More About Jason Determann, MD
Dr. Determann is a Fellowship Trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and treatment of the shoulder and elbow. Injuries to the arm seem a natural fit for this former star pitcher for the LSU Tigers. After a string of national and SEC honors, Determann’s own elbow injuries led him to forego his senior season and a draft by the Boston Red Sox to attend medical school instead. He trained under some of the nation’s leaders in sports medicine, providing care for professional athletes as well as the NFL Carolina Panthers at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, NC. For many years Dr. Determann has served as team physician for the Fairhope High School Pirates. He joined Gulf Ortho in its merger with Bayside Orthopaedic Sports Medicine & Rehab in 2023.

Dr. Determann’s LSU career was as celebrated for academics as the pitcher’s mound. Described by the university’s athletic department as “the absolute best of what a student-athlete should be,” he led the Tigers to two College World Series appearances and an SEC championship while maintaining the team’s highest GPA. ESPN named Determann to its Academic All-American Team and he was recognized as the SEC Baseball Scholar Athlete of the Year. After “Tommy John” elbow surgery his freshman year, an interest in orthopaedics began. If surgery could return him to pitch successfully, he determined he would do the same for other athletes one day.
He and wife Emily are proud parents to four, and on Saturday mornings you’ll find him watching his own crew on the diamond at Fairhope Baseball Park.
