Thomas Alexander, MD

As a board certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, Thomas Alexander, MD, specializes in sports medicine with a focus on treating the musculoskeletal injuries of the shoulder, elbow and knee.

Since joining Optim Orthopedics in 2015, he has helped thousands of patients recover from injury, restore pain-free flexibility eroded by age and wear, and return to full mobility and the lifestyle they enjoy.

Dr. Alexander treats patients for a wide range of conditions to include shoulder tendinopathy, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, shoulder arthritis, SLAP tears, AC joint injuries, meniscus tears, knee arthritis and ACL tears. Some of the procedures he performs are arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, arthroscopic labral repair, ACL reconstruction, meniscal repair, total and reverse arthroplasty, superior capsular reconstruction, and total knee replacement.

He serves as Team Physician for the Savannah Bananas, Savannah Country Day School, Savannah State University, St. Vincent’s Academy, St. Andrews School, Claxton High School and Pinewood Christian Academy.

While treating athletic injuries is his forte, he equally advocates for measures designed to prevent injuries in athletes, working alongside them to ensure best practices that will keep them out of his office.

Dr. Alexander earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, graduating with honors in 2009. He completed his residency at the Campbell Clinic of the University of Tennessee. He went on to complete a shoulder reconstruction and sports medicine fellowship at the prestigious Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas in Greenville. Dr. Alexander is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He sees patients in Savannah, Bluffton, Pooler, Claxton and Reidsville.
