Meet Dr. Jonathan Shults

Dr. Jonathan Shults grew up in South Florida. An athlete throughout his life, he played water polo and was a high school wrestler at Miami Sunset Senior High.

Upon graduation from the University of Florida in Gainsville, he returned home to South Florida, earning his M.D. at the University of Miami School of Medicine. He then completed his surgical residency at the famed Oschner Clinic in New Orleans (now part of the Oschner Health System) before entering private practice.

Dr. Shults has worked in South Carolina at the South Carolina Orthopedic Institute in Orangeburg. He practiced with South Louisiana Medical Associates and at the Bayou Orthopedic Center in Houma, Louisiana for over ten years, while helping to train orthopedic residents in the Oschner Health System.

Dr. Shults is now performing surgeries at Coastal Empire Orthopedics and lives in Savannah with his wife, Geneva, and their three children.

A competitive runner and cyclist himself, Dr. Shults understands the passion and dedication of athletes at every level. His goal is always to get our patients back in the game, performing pain-free at the level to which they are accustomed.

We work with young athletes, with middle-aged men and women who work and play as if they were kids, and with older patients who hope to remain active throughout their golden years. “There’s a lot to do here on the coast, lots of interesting people,” Dr. Shults says. “We are here to make sure that they get to enjoy all that Savannah, its islands, and our coast have to offer.”
