Minimizing Downtime with Effective Treatments

Our specialists offer treatments focused on safety to both reduce downtime and help you achieve long-term performance goals. We always consider the injury, objective of the patient, and the full spectrum of treatment options available. Whenever possible, our team offers nonoperative treatments before recommending surgery.

If surgery is appropriate, you can rely on our sports medicine specialists to determine the right procedure for you. We are experts in highly advanced arthroscopic and minimally invasive procedures – particularly involving the shoulder, knee, and hip.

Our expertise in arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery translates into faster recovery times (sometimes days, versus weeks) for you. We are also among a handful of orthopaedic surgeons in North Texas offering arthroscopic hip replacement surgery.
