Dr. Sasser Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sasser Jr "I was born and raised in Glynn County and spent most of my childhood growing up on St. Simons Island. After graduating from Glynn Academy and finishing my undergraduate degree in English literature from Washington University I attended the Medical College of Georgia for both medical school and orthopedic residency.

Dr. Sasser preformed a reverse shoulder replacement and a hip replacement for me, with both being very successful . I give him and his staff a "AT A BOY AND GIRL" for the info and care he and staff have given me, post procedures, especially calling me at home to check on how I was healing.

Dr. Sasser has a wonderful bedside manner. He is very upfront. He shares with you what to expect (good and bad) from an injury. He is very thorough. He is also very easy to talk to. He repaired both of my daughter's ACL's and she has recovered very well..

I went to the emergency room thinking I had a twisted knee—instead I had two broken bones. And compartment syndrome. Dr. Sasser performed emergency surgery —and saved my life. I continue to improve and look forward to a great recovery.
