Living Better Stories


4 Flares 4 Flares ×

My name is Jeremy Statton. I am an orthopedic surgeon and a writer. My goal is to make a difference in your life by sharing my experiences and ideas.

Everyone of us is telling a story with our lives. Some tell better stories than others.

Living a life that is rewarding and full of promise and hope comes through hard work and planning.

It comes by being intentional and choosing a tougher route.

It comes through taking well calculated risks and not playing it safe.

I hope that the blog is a place where you can discover new ideas for yourself about how to get more out of life. Engage in the articles and the discussions and take a step towards living a better story.

I grew up in a small town in western Kentucky. After college I attended the University of Louisville School of Medicine. After completing a residency in Orthopedic Surgery I then went studied sports medicine at the University of Cincinnati and Orthopedic Trauma at Wilhelminenspital in Vienna, Austria. My practice is located near Atlanta, GA.

I am married to Amanda and and have seven incredible kids named Jesse, Noah, Sean, Mari Alice Eva, Grace and Jude. Sean, Eva and Jude were all adopted from China. You can read more about our trip to get them here.

I have guest-blogged for several other websites. To see a list of these click on my writing portfolio page.


I do consulting and speaking engagements for select organizations and events. I speak on topics related to Orthopedic surgery, relating to customers, how to be a better sales representative, and living better stories.

If you’re interested in having me come speak at your event or consult with your organization, please contact me via email.

  1. Hey Jeremy,

    I came across you from Jeff Goins blog. When I read that you were a surgeon who was a blogger it peaked my interest. Given that i’m Indian, you can probably imagine how much becoming a doctor is respected in my community. My sister is starting an anasthesia residency. I on the other hand am blazing a trail that doesn’t make much sense to most people in my life but it’s opened up a world of opportunities  that I never planned on.  I just wanted to say hello, and I look forward to reading more of your content. 

  2. Thanks for taking the time to say hello, Srinivas. Can you tell me more about the journey you are on?

  3. For sure. I actually started blogging in April 2009. As a byproduct of starting The Skool of Life, I also ended up creating a podcast called BlogcastFM. I’ve interviewed over 200 bloggers, authors, and social media experts. The show is sponsored by Livefyre and gets around 70,000 downloads a month. So I guess you could say i’m on the journey of building what I affectionately refer to as a media empire :).

  4. I understand that in some cultures being a physician is very desired, but 70,000 downloads a month is huge. I think that is a great story.

    Hi Jeremy,

    I also live outside the mundane.  I am a single mom to two (and hopefully three ) beautiful Chinese daughters. When I stand before Christ I will thank Him for the incredible blessing of living a life to the fullest with Him to guide me.  People ask why I chose this life – adoption instead of other  ways. But then they  meet the children and see I am so very, very blessed.  Years ago I thought I’ d be a wife and mother, but I don’t know if I would have ever met these lovely children – my wonderful gifts.  I’m a former NICU nurse, and faithful follower of Christ.  Blessings on your next adoption. My new little girl was on the HOLT website and recently was listed as I HAVE A FAMILY.

  6. What an incredible moment. Every kid needs a family. Every person needs to love someone else. Hearing about your story this morning really made my day. Thanks, Kathleen.
