Northern Light Orthopedics and Northern Light Inland Hospital are pleased to welcome William Bassett, MD, the only fellowship-trained surgeon in the state performing complex pediatric orthopedic surgery. Thanks to a partnership with Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, where Dr. Bassett also sees patients, he will now be available to our central Maine community. 

Dr. Bassett treats benign bone tumors, club feet, foot reconstruction, fractures, hip dysplasia, leg length discrepancy, lower extremity deformity, and scoliosis.

Dr. Bassett joins our Orthopedics practice, located at 25 First Park in Oakland. Contact your Primary Care provider for a referral or call 207.861.7862 for more information. 

Dr. Bassett earned his medical education from Drexel College of Medicine, completed a residency in Orthopedic Surgery at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Orthopedic Residency, and a fellowship in Pediatric Orthopedics and Scoliosis at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. 

He is proud to provide subspecialized surgical care to patients throughout Maine. Dr. Bassett says, “My goal as a pediatric orthopedist is to help children retain and regain their childhood by enabling families to take part in activities that they enjoy, while improving patients’ overall quality of life. I help families understand complex problems while providing realistic and attainable goals.”
