David L. Wassell, MD

4.5 out of 5

Born and raised in Little Rock, Dr. David Wassell earned a BS in History from the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO before pursuing his medical education. As an Air Force Captain and F-16 Fighter Pilot with the Arkansas Air National Guard, he flew combat missions as part of Nato PeaceKeeping operations over Bosnia in 1996.

Upon receiving his medical degree from the University of Arkansas College of Medicine in 2001, Dr. Wassell completed his internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.

An avid artist, Dr. Wassell was drawn to the creative and reconstructive nature of orthopedics. He enjoys “fixing” people – either by treating their injuries or by reconstructing the effects of aging and in the end giving back their quality of life.

Dr. Wassell is an enthusiastic duck hunter and still enjoys flying when he can. He has many hobbies but counts being a husband and father to his 2 young children as his most important calling.
