Common Orthopaedic Problems:

UTMB Health’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation serves the orthopaedic needs of patients from southeast Texas and the Gulf South region with access and facilities on the UTMB campus as well as our mainland clinics in South Shore Harbor, Victory Lakes and Houston.

Our staff consists of nationally and internationally recognized specialists devoted to quality adult and pediatric patient care, comprehensive medical education, and innovative research encompassing muscles and bones, from head to toe.

Patient care solutions include non-operative management, as well as surgical intervention when appropriate, to treat musculoskeletal injuries and diseases ranging from pulled muscles to broken bones to traumatic injuries to worn-out joints.

We treat feet, shoulders, pelvic fractures, replace ankles, hips, knees, and finger joints. We help carpal tunnel, scoliosis, back pain, sports injuries, recommending non-surgical therapies when possible. But, when surgery is needed, we offer the latest in technology, including minimally invasive surgery, state-of-the-art computer-guided techniques, innovative implants and instrumentation.

If you have an orthopaedic problem or question, UTMB Orthopaedics has the answer for you!

Think muscles, joints and bones. It's about getting your life back.

If Eleanor isn't moving, she isn't happy. There's skiing, wakeboarding, rock climbing, and the more down to earth activities like biking to the store. When she needed surgery on her ankle, she was worried.

She came to UTMB Health and benefited from a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, doctors, nurses, and physical therapists who knew that Eleanor needed aggressive treatment to return to her active lifestyle. They kept her informed at every step. "I'm a Nurse Practitioner. I practice what I preach about staying active and healthy. When it came time for rehab, the people here made sure I stayed with the plan. You get out of it what you put in."

Today, Eleanor is back to her old tricks, which also happened to include kicking up her heels and dancing at a friend's wedding.

Whether it's working in ortho, neuro, or any aspect of the musculoskeletal system, UTMB has gifted clinicians. These are the doctors and surgeons who teach others their art, using the very latest equipment, technology and techniques.

It's about getting your life back. Your life. Whether that means gardening, hiking, fishing, playing guitar, typing on a keyboard, extreme sports or just lifting your grandkids, our team is ready to return you to the things you love to do.

If something isn't right, do what Eleanor did. Take charge of your health and call us at 800-917-8906 to work wonders for you.
