Inland Hospital welcomes Dr. Brian Abbott to Northern Light Orthopedics
We are pleased to welcome Brian Abbott, DO, to Northern Light Orthopedics
in Waterville, located in the Medical Arts Building attached to Northern Light Inland Hospital.
Dr. Abbott provides non-surgical orthopedic/sports medicine care, including evaluation and treatment of sprains and strains, non-surgical fracture management, osteopathic manipulation, diagnostic and interventional musculoskeletal ultrasound, and more.
Dr. Abbott has been practicing for 18 years, most recently in Helena, Montana. He is board-certified in Family Medicine and Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulation. In addition, he holds a certificate of additional qualification in Primary Care Sports Medicine and is a Registered Musculoskeletal Sonographer.
Dr. Abbott earned his medical degree at the University of Pikeville Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine and his undergraduate degree at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. He has completed fellowships in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulation and Primary Care Sports Medicine.
“I enjoy connecting with patients, partnering with them and helping them navigate their medical issues. Helping them towards their goals and seeing them succeed is what makes the job satisfying,” says Dr. Abbott.
In college, Dr. Abbott initially had thoughts of becoming an athletic trainer or physical therapist but found that osteopathic medicine was the perfect fit for him. “The tenets of osteopathic medicine really appealed to me – that is the body is a functional unit, it has the propensity to heal itself, structure and function are interrelated and treating a patient is based on these tenets. I have been happy practicing non-surgical orthopedic care with this holistic approach.”
Outside of medicine, Dr. Abbott enjoys trail running, mountain biking, and camping and hiking with his wife and two sons.
