  • Why do some providers have no ratings?
    At UTMB, a provider's ratings are only posted when she/he has a minimum of 30 completed surveys within the past twelve months. New-to-UTMB providers or individuals in less common areas of practice may be temporarily under this threshold. We set this baseline to ensure we offer the most accurate reflection of each Individual.

    Why No Ratings?

  • Dr. Weiss specializes primarily in Orthopedic Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, and Extremity Reconstruction, and due to his considerable fellowship training has a broad focus that includes the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle and foot. He has primary interest in treating sports injuries, but also treats traumatic injuries or fractures, and other degenerative or deforming conditions of the upper and lower extremity.

    Dr. Weiss completed 2 Undergraduate Science degrees (BSc Biochemistry & BSc Human Kinetics) and a Master of Science degree (MSc Biochemistry), while being involved in athletics and becoming Nationally Certified in Coaching, Fitness Training, and Exercise Physiology. He then pursued Medical School (MD) and Residency training in Orthopedic Surgery, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada (FRCSC), certified in Orthopedic Surgery.

    Dr. Weiss then completed his first Orthopedic Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy and Extremity Reconstruction fellowship in Canada (University of Alberta) before coming to Texas to complete a second Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship (Plano Orthopedics & Sports Medicine) accredited by the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) and the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM). He then proceeded to complete a third fellowship in Orthopedic Foot, Ankle and Lower Extremity Reconstruction (University of Texas Medical Branch, UTMB) accredited by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) before taking a position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery & Rehabilitation at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) - El Paso.

    In 4 years at TTUHSC, Dr. Weiss became Director of Research and Director of Orthopedic Sports Medicine & Arthroscopy for the Department of Orthopedic Surgery & Rehabilitation, and served as Associate Research Director for the combined William Beaumont US Army Medical Center/TTUHSC Orthopedic Residency Program (the only joint military and civilian residency program in the US). He was the Medical Director of Sports Medicine for University Medical Center (UMC) of El Paso, instituting a Sports Medicine Program that allowed him to be the physician and orthopedic surgeon for numerous high school sports programs, and teams from the University of Texas El Paso (UTEP). Dr. Weiss was also the orthopedic surgeon for the El Paso Locomotive professional soccer team, and cared for active duty members of the US Army.

    As TTUHSC El Paso is the only level 1 Trauma center in a roughly 300 mile radius, Dr. Weiss was also able to care for trauma patients and those with complex injuries requiring multiple ligament knee reconstructions, meniscal allograft transplantation, and complex shoulder, elbow, hip or lower extremity reconstructions relevant to both sports medicine and trauma. During his time with TTUHSC, Dr. Weiss became a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (FAAOS), and was recognized with his colleagues and first-responders who responded, and cared for the victims of the El Paso shooting in 2019.

    Dr. Weiss returns to UTMB with aims to further his teaching and research goals in orthopedic surgery, with a focus on sports medicine and basic science.

  • Dr. Somerson joined The University of Texas Medical Branch as Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery in 2016. He is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with special fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery. His philosophy is to treat every patient as he would like his family members to be treated, developing individualized treatment plans and listening carefully to the needs of each patient. Dr. Somerson is experienced with minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and elbow, rotator cuff problems, treatment of arthritis, joint replacement, repair of torn tendons, treatment of unstable joints, and repair of broken bones. He is currently the only member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons society to serve Galveston and the Bay Area, and is fluent in both Spanish and German.

    If non-surgical treatments are unsuccessful, Dr. Somerson uses the latest minimally-invasive techniques for treatment of shoulder problems, including rotator cuff tears and shoulder dislocations. He has extensive training in treating shoulder arthritis and is a high-volume shoulder replacement surgeon. For patients who have had prior shoulder replacement and are having difficulties, he is experienced with revision shoulder replacements.

    He underwent residency training at The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, a high-volume regional trauma center, where he gained experience in treating a wide range of orthopedic injuries, from high-impact motor vehicle collisions to everyday falls. He has a special interest in broken bones of the shoulder and elbow region and has published research and given lectures at national conferences on this topic. He also repairs a wide range of other broken bones, including hip, knee, ankle, and hand injuries.

    During residency, Dr. Somerson had the opportunity to train in the management of difficult elbow problems, including fractures, instability of the joint, ligament and tendon tears, and arthritis, with Dr. Anil Dutta and Dr. Bernard Morrey, two renowned surgeons in the field of complex elbow reconstruction. He underwent an elective rotation at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN to further his knowledge regarding advanced elbow surgical problems, including elbow replacement and elbow arthroscopy.

    He then completed a fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Washington Medical Center. Under the guidance of Dr. Frederick Matsen, he gained advanced training in the fields of primary and revision shoulder replacement and in-depth experience in the fields of rotator cuff repair, shoulder and elbow stabilization surgery, elbow replacement, and repair of humerus fractures. Dr. Somerson is trained in the ream-and-run procedure, a radically conservative treatment option for selected patients desiring a high level of activity after shoulder replacement.

    Dr. Somerson is actively engaged in research to further our understanding of shoulder and elbow problems. With over 50 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters, he is frequently invited to lecture on topics including reverse shoulder replacement and management of shoulder arthritis in active patients.
