Houston Physicians' Hospital Orthopedics
At Houston Physicians’ Hospital, our orthopedic physicians focus on injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. This complex system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. It’s what allows you to be active and provides support and stability for the body. Every bone, tissue, and tendon in the body is a part of the skeleton system and a potential contributor to an orthopedic condition. Our orthopedic surgeon treats the bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that aid in movement in patients of all ages. We use technologic advancements, such as robotic surgery, to allow our orthopedic surgeon to perform complex procedures with more precision and control. This causes treatment and recovery to become much more efficient.
