Dr. George Sutherland, MD is a sports medicine specialist with over 16 years of experience in the medical field. Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, he graduated with honors from Eastern Virginia Medical School. After graduation, he completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at LSU Medical Center in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Dr. Sutherland received his fellowship training from the Hughston Sports Medicine Clinic in Columbus, Ga. He is trained to treat and identify all forms of injury to your musculoskeletal system including the bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and joints. After making a diagnosis, Dr. Sutherland will resort to surgery when all other treatment options have already been exhausted or ruled out. His expertise in performing shoulder and knee reconstruction is unsurpassed.

“In my practice, I cover pediatrics, trauma, and sports medicine. I have a lot of experience in a lot of different areas,” Sutherland said. This cross-training between trauma and sports injuries has given him a uniquely well-rounded perspective. Patients might need the attention from Dr. Sutherland for torn ligaments, sports injuries, fractures, sprains, and more.

Dr. Sutherland performs surgery at Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, S.C., Hilton Head Hospital on Hilton Head Island, S.C., and Doctors Hospital of Tattnall in Reidsville, Ga.; he performs outpatient surgery at Optim Orthopedic Center in Savannah, Ga. He is currently seeing new patients at the Hilton Head Island location every Thursday morning.
