Location Information


Dr. Russell’s parents always supported him from the time he was a young child through his journey in medical school and specialty training. During his elementary and high school years, Dr. Russell played sports and, unfortunately, incurred injuries. He spent lots of time with orthopedic physicians and at that point knew he wanted to become an orthopedic surgeon.  

As a board certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Russell specializes in joint replacement surgery, sports injuries and trauma. He is amazed how much surgical procedures, such as shoulder replacement surgery, have changed and significantly improved over the years. For the first 24 years of his career, Dr. Russell practiced in Lansing and was chairman of the orthopedic department. Although it was a hard decision to leave Lansing, he is very glad that he moved his practice to Battle Creek. 

In his free time, Dr. Russell and his wife enjoy spending time with their six children and seven grandchildren.

214 Patient Satisfaction Reviews

The ratings displayed below are an average of all patient responses to the Clinician and Group Practice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) survey.

The CG-CAHPS survey is used by hospitals and medical practices across the country and was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Bronson Healthcare’s CG-CAHPS survey is administered by Press Ganey. Surveys are sent to randomly selected Bronson patients after they have had an appointment with a Bronson physician in an outpatient practice setting.

The comments and star ratings you see here reflect the views and opinions of patients who have completed and returned their surveys. Press Ganey independently compiles the data and forwards it to Bronson to be posted.
