Why Convenient Care Matters How On-Site Procedures Can Benefit You

Our state-of-the-art facility can perform multiple surgeries, physical therapy, splinting and casting, and radiology at our Fort Worth location, providing patients with a convenient, less expensive way to undergo treatment. 

Safe and Effective

Our state-of-the-art procedure rooms allow us to perform surgery that is as safe as those performed in traditional operating rooms, and can produce the same or even better results.

Avoid Anesthesia

Many of our in-office procedures require no anesthesia. This means you don't have to worry about side effects like nausea, you can still drive to and from your appointment, and you can eat or drink like normal before your visit.

Familiar Location

You can have your consultation, surgery, and physical therapy sessions in one convenient location, allowing you to feel more comfortable with the office and our staff. 

Reduced Cost

Receiving surgery in a hospital setting carries many extra costs. Surgery in our Fort Worth location eliminates these extra costs, making our treatments more affordable for our patients.

Learn More About Our Costs Before Treatment Our Fort Worth Practice Strives To Make Care Affordable

We are aware of how expensive medical care can be. We want every patient to live a pain-free life with full mobility. We strive to make our treatments affordable and provide patients with payment options.


We have partnered with CareCredit® financing to help break your costs into no or low-interest monthly payments.

Our Practice

Because our specialists can perform many orthopedic surgeries at our Fort Worth location, we can provide your care for half the cost of a traditional facility.

Outside Facility

We use ambulatory surgery centers, so you can still receive the same level of care without the hospital fees if your orthopedic surgery cannot be performed at our Fort Worth location.

Orthopedic Surgery for All Conditions from Shoulder to Fingertip

While we always start with the least invasive treatment possible, sometimes surgery is necessary. Our orthopedic doctors will review your symptoms and condition during your consultation at our Fort Worth practice to determine if orthopedic surgery is right for you. 

Shoulder Surgery

When shoulder pain and immobility can't be treated with physical therapy, surgery might be necessary to restore your quality of life. Our orthopedic doctors specialize in the treatment of several shoulder injuries and conditions like arthritis, bone fractures, rotator cuff tears, and joint replacement.

Elbow Surgery

Overuse of the elbow (tennis elbow) is common in sports medicine and orthopedics. While athletes like tennis players are known for being at risk, any profession or activity that requires repeated joint rotation is susceptible to this painful condition. Our physicians can treat tennis elbow and other issues like ligament tears, broken bones, and more to eliminate your pain and restore your range of motion.

Hand Surgery

Our hands are involved in almost everything we do. It is important to seek treatment when they lose mobility and function or cause pain. Our specialists can treat hand injuries, degenerative medical conditions, and more through surgical and non-surgical treatments.
