Dr. Mathew distinguishes himself in the Houston community through his arthroscopic joint preservation procedures and minimally invasive muscle sparing robotically assisted hip and knee replacement surgeries.

All these factors drastically create a more natural feel and improve the recovery process with more function and less pain.
