New Specialized Orthopedic Surgeon Comes to Abilene

Abilene, Texas – Odessa native, Brian Sager, MD, has joined Abilene Bone and Joint as their newest surgeon.  As a hand specialist, Dr. Sager will be the first, and only, fellowship trained hand and upper extremity surgeon in the Big Country.

“Having Dr. Sager as part of the Abilene Bone and Joint surgical team brings a depth of specialized services unique for a mid-market community like Abilene.  Those who are in need of concentrated hand orthopedic surgery will be able to stay in Abilene for the surgery therefore eliminating travel and related expenses when seeing a specialist in larger markets like Dallas or Houston,” explains Dr. Shannon Cooke, managing partner of Abilene Bone and Joint.
