Our Chief Orthopedic Doctors: Dr. Prager & Dr. Whittenburg

Dr. Prager is an experienced orthopedic surgeon who has practiced in Texas since finishing his training. His undergraduate degree was obtained at the University of Pittsburgh where he obtained his B.S. in the Honors program of Biology. Dr. Prager attended medical school at New York Medical College. While at medical school Dr. Prager became interested in orthopedics and completed his residency at Wayne State University in Detroit. Always having an interest in sports, Dr. Prager then received a fellowship in sports medicine and arthroscopy at Saint Frances Medical Center of the University of Illinois. He also completed an A-O Trauma fellowship at Queens University Medical Centre in Nottingham, England. Dr. Prager is an assistant clinical professor at the University of Texas Southwestern School of Allied Health.

Dr. Whittenburg attended the University of North Texas majoring in Computer Science/Engineering with emphasis in Biology and Chemistry in 1990. Fulfilling a lifelong dream to become a physician, he then entered the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth and graduated with honors in 1996. During his first year of medical school, his father developed a severe disability from rapidly progressive hip arthritis, requiring a hip replacement at a relatively young age. Dr. Whittenburg was impressed with the difference that joint replacement can make in the lives of people with osteoarthritis. As a result of this experience, Dr. Whittenburg decided to dedicate his career to helping people with similar conditions. Training included a general internship year in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This was followed by four years in Chicago in Orthopedic Surgery residency where he received training in total joint replacement, orthopedic trauma, hand, spine, and pediatric orthopedics.
