Lincoln Health System is pleased to announce board-certified general surgeon, J. Dennie Crabtree, Jr, MD, FACS,   has joined Lincoln Medical Group Specialty Associates, a Fayetteville based multi-specialty practice.

Dr. Crabtree will bring more than 20 years of general surgery experience to the practice and will offer a wide variety of surgical services including endoscopy, breast surgery, and advanced laparoscopic surgeries at Lincoln Medical Center.

Dr. Crabtree has practiced general surgery in Middle Tennessee for his entire career with his primary practice located in Tullahoma, TN.  From 2016-2018, Dr. Crabtree operated a satellite clinic in Fayetteville and provided the community with much-needed surgery care after the retirement of Fayetteville’s long-term general surgeon, Dr. Ted Cobb.

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Crabtree to LMG Specialty Associates,” said Lincoln Health System CEO, Russ Spray.  “Having a second general surgeon in the community will help us provide specialty care for the residents of Lincoln County, reducing the need to travel for care.”

Dr. Crabtree earned his medical degree in Johnson City, TN, at ETSU’s James H. Quillen College of Medicine.  He completed his residency in general surgery at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine – Chattanooga Unit and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

Dr. Crabtree and Dr. David Crump of Lincoln Medical Group Surgical Associates will serve as Fayetteville’s only general surgery providers.

Patients can schedule an appointment with Dr. Crabtree at Lincoln Medical Group Specialty Associates, located at 108 Medical Center Blvd., Suite 175 by calling 931-433-2909. Visit for more information.
