Any houston or tx doctor for osteotomy
« on: June 08, 2004, 05:09:42 PM »
Does anyone know of a doctor in Texas (preferably in the Houston area) who would be a good choice to do a osteotomy (HTO)? I went to one doctor in Houston who was recommended to me by my OS. But, the doctor recommended a Unispacer instead and was pretty negative about an osteotomy. He said the only doctor who has alot of experience with osteotomy is in NY.

HI Sue, I used to work with a OS many  years ago.  I have recently had a lot of problems with my left knee. I live in Austin and had some surgery done here.  I went to San Antonio to see Dr. John Alan Evans,  he is recommending an osteootomy on me. I am a 39 year old active female . I would highly recommend him . Tell him Kat and Micky sent you. He will be doing my operation this summer. Good luck

Check out the Fondren Orthopedic Clinic on Main St, Houston. Dr Mark Brinker is the OS specialist, works hand-in-hand with Dr Gregory Stocks (TKR/PKR specialist, did my PKR in Sept), and Dr Robert Fain, knee joint specialist (was knee Dr for the Oilers when they were in town)
I would crawl to Houston from Beaumont before I would go to any other knee dr, and I have been to several prior to meeting them.
