Orthopedic surgeon Dr. David M. Sedory has joined Optim’s network of renowned orthopedic physicians at Optim Orthopedics seeing patients at their Savannah, Richmond Hill, and Hinesville locations.
Most recently Sedory served as the chief of surgery at the Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart. From 2011 through 2017 he was the team physician/surgeon for the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment stationed at Hunter Army Airfield.
“I am excited to join the Optim Orthopedics team,” Sedory said. “I have had the honor to care for a vast array of patients, including our brave men and women serving our military, and look forward to continuing to bring that same compassionate care to my Optim patients.”
Sedory is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and believes that non-operative measures should be the first option in nearly all patients, but employs a wide variety of surgical techniques to get his patients back to their desired activities when conservative measures fail.
He is a specialist in arthroscopic surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder. His practice focuses on joint and cartilage preservation surgeries, including the treatment of hip impingement and labral tears, complex ligament reconstruction in the knee, meniscal repair and transplantation, rotator cuff repair and shoulder stabilization procedures, cartilage reconstruction and growth factor delivery using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow concentrate (BMAC).
In 2005, Sedory earned his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and completed his orthopedic internship and residency at Brooke Army Medical Center, now San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium.
During his time in San Antonio he had the honor of taking care of many of our country’s injured soldiers and amputees coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan. He obtained additional training in hip arthroscopy and hip preservation surgeries in Nashville, Tennessee, and at Duke University and has performed hundreds of arthroscopic hip surgeries since 2013.
He and his wife, Stacey, live in Richmond Hill and have one son who attends Savannah Country Day School. Sedory enjoys spending time with family and friends, golfing, fishing, fitness and being near the coast.
