David Saxton, MD

Dr. Saxton enjoys the variety in orthopedics. He has a strong interest in sports medicine, but also treats general orthopedic needs. As a result, he performs a variety of procedures, including knee and shoulder scopes, fracture repair, knee and shoulder replacements, and ACL reconstruction. As part of his commitment to sports medicine, he provides sideline coverage at area high school games and was Head Team Physician for the OKC Barons.

 

When it comes to patients, Dr. Saxton treats them as if family, advising them as if they were his own family member. Managing expectations and helping patients to understand what to realistically expect when they have recovered, is absolutely essential to a good outcome.

About Dr. Saxton

Dr. David Saxton attended the United States Air Force Academy, where during his senior year, he became a national champion in parachuting. He has also spent time as both a jumpmaster and instructor in parachuting. His calm and composed nature may come as a result of all those jumps.

 

Before becoming a physician, Dr. David Saxton was a hospital administrator, it was during this time socializing with physicians at the hospital, that he first considered becoming a physician himself. 

 

Dr. Saxton and his wife, Dr. Elisa Crouse, enjoy staying active and being outdoors.
