Dr. Beau SasserSoutheast Georgia Health System has launched, “Dr. Beau Sasser’s Sports Medicine Blog,” an online forum dedicated to educating the community on current sports medicine practices. Beau Sasser, M.D., board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery, is the blog’s featured author.

“My focus is not only to provide sports medicine and wellness information in understandable terms,” says Sasser, “but also to open a conversational forum to answer questions and utilize those questions as a springboard for future topics.”

A native of Glynn County and a graduate of Glynn Academy, Sasser received his undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. He earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia where he also completed both his internship and orthopaedic residency. Following his residency, Sasser received exclusive sports medicine training while in a fellowship program with the Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute.
