  • 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?
  • Joint replacement providers understand adults, as well as seniors, and the challenges of aging joints, bones and muscles. Our goal is to help patients retain function and mobility.

    Arthroplasty and Joint Surgery services include:

    • Joint Reconstruction
    • Hip, Knee and Shoulder Arthroscopy
    • Hip Reconstruction and Replacement
    • Hip Resurfacing
    • Knee Reconstruction and Replacement
    • Partial Knee Replacement
    • Patient Specific Knee Replacement
    • Repair of Pelvic Fractures

    Joint replacement providers see patients 50+. If you are under 50 please see one of our general orthopedic providers and, if needed, they can refer you for more specialized treatment.
