  • Arthritis in hands and ankles
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Ligament repairs and reconstruction, including ACL, MCL, PCL and LCL

In addition, our surgeons specialize in traumatic injuries, as well as minimally-invasive joint replacements and procedures, including:

  • Femoral and tibial nailing of diaphyseal fractures, including hips
  • Arthroscopy for inflammation or acute and chronic injuries to the shoulder, knee, elbow, ankle, or wrist

Joint replacement

Joint pain can be caused by arthritis, tendonitis and/or bursitis and other issues. This type of pain may sometimes be debilitating and physical therapy and other options may not always be the best course of action.

  • Hip replacement: Hip replacement may be an option for patients suffering from chronic hip pain.
  • Knee replacement: We offer both total and partial knee replacement surgical options. Both of these procedures allow for the removal of affected areas of bone and cartilage.
  • Shoulder replacement: Shoulder surgery may be required due to pain coming from your shoulder joint or your rotator cuff. If you suffer from chronic shoulder pain, surgical options might include total shoulder replacement and reverse total shoulder replacement.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Almost all of our orthopedic procedures require some form of physical therapy and rehabilitation as part of the recovery plan.

Many patients will begin walking and stretching the day of their surgery to begin their physical therapy journey. Our physical therapists work with you at your pace to strengthen muscles and restore mobility.

Orthopedic care at HCA Houston Healthcare

Orthopedic doctors, called orthopedists, take care of your bones and joints. This includes knee pain, total joint replacement, issues that impact your spine and more. You might need to see an orthopedist if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, or if you've had a recent sprain, strain or broken bone.
