Dr. Cason earned his Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, before attending The University of Mississippi School of Medicine for his Doctor of Medicine degree. After medical school, he went on to complete his residency in orthopaedic surgery at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine in Chattanooga.
