Dr. Doug Albracht
Dr. Doug is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who enjoys getting to know his patients on an individual level. During medical school, he fell in love with the technical and mechanical aspects of orthopedic surgery.
“Orthopedics is like carpentry on the human body. I enjoy the challenge of treating fractures and orthopedic injuries. Above all, I enjoy using my God-given talents to help others,” he says.
Dr. Doug has strong roots in the Panhandle. A native to Amarillo, he attended Amarillo High School before moving on to the University of Texas, Austin and then on to medical school in Ft. Worth. He then did his residency training in York, PA with several orthopedic rotations including pediatrics at A. I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE. Albracht Orthopedic Surgery was birthed in Dumas where Dr. Doug practiced for several years. After practicing briefly in TN and IL, he recently returned to Amarillo to once again practice with his brother.
Dr. Doug is a general orthopedic surgeon with interests in rotator cuff repair, total joint replacement and knee arthroscopy. He has been certified with specialized training in partial knee replacement as well. Additionally, he treats sports related injuries and fracture care to the extremities. He enjoys seeing his patients improve drastically after surgery and return to an active lifestyle.
Dr. Doug and his wife, Melissa, are the parents of four children, Makenzie, Colton, Nathan and Mabrie. Mabrie was adopted from China at 2 1/2 years of age.
