Houston Orthopedic Specialist


Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorder.


Our Houston Orthopedic Specialists develop effective, minimally invasive treatment plans and surgical techniques specific to each patient. Our ongoing efforts to find the least invasive and most effective treatment for injuries and conditions most frequently seen in our patients have resulted in studies responsible for early diagnosis and treatment of early degenerative joint conditions, as well as improved implants and joint restructuring procedures.


Our Houston Orthopedic surgeons, physicians, assistants, therapists and staff work closely as a team and take great pride in the training, knowledge and capabilities we represent.
