Dr. Jason Klein is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and fellowship-trained elbow and shoulder doctor at Carrell Clinic in Dallas and Frisco. As a shoulder and elbow surgeon, Dr. Klein is an expert in rotator cuff repair, labral repair, all elbow tendon repairs, and shoulder and elbow fracture fixation. He also has exceptional experience in total shoulder arthroplasty (joint replacement), including anatomic total shoulder and reverse total shoulder replacement. He is dedicated to helping anyone experiencing shoulder pain or elbow pain and provides specialized diagnostics and treatment for the whole spectrum of elbow and shoulder conditions. Dr. Klein has extensive training and experience in the care of shoulder and elbow instability, labral tears, arthritis of the shoulder and elbow, trauma, shoulder and elbow fractures, clavicle injuries, and acromioclavicular joint injuries, including shoulder separation. In addition to advanced shoulder and elbow surgery, Dr. Klein also provides the latest in evidence-based nonsurgical care options for joint injuries.

Dr. Klein was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. He attended Greenhill School and proudly graduated as part of the school’s Forever Club. His interest in Orthopaedic Surgery has many origins. As a young kid, he loved rounding on patients and attending high school football games with his father, his role model and a well respected Orthopaedic Surgeon in Garland, Texas. Next, Dr. Klein overcame his own set of knee and elbow injuries sustained while playing tennis, baseball, and football that ultimately required the excellent, personalized care of the W.B. Carrell Clinic physicians and staff. Watching his father counsel patients at the time of their injuries as well as learning from his own experiences with injury ultimately inspired his pursuit of a career in Orthopaedic Surgery.

After graduating from Greenhill School with the Bernard Fulton award, Dr. Klein attended Duke University. He walked on to the tennis team and later graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Biology and minors in Spanish and Chemistry. His Spanish minor allows him to communicate with Spanish-speaking patients. He attended medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and went on to match at Jackson Memorial Hospital / University of Miami for Orthopaedic Surgery Residency, successfully couples matching with his wife. During his last year of residency, Dr. Klein was appointed academic chief resident. To become a subspecialized elbow and shoulder doctor, he was fortunate to complete a world-renowned fellowship in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery at the Rothman Institute / Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. There he learned the most advanced techniques in modern open reconstructive and arthroscopic shoulder and elbow surgery from many of the world’s experts. His training covered shoulder replacement, shoulder and elbow trauma care, labral and biceps surgery, and tendon repairs of the elbow, including biceps, triceps, extensor, and flexor tendons. In addition, he published a number of papers within the field of shoulder and elbow and presented his research at conferences across the country. Following his fellowship training, Dr. Klein returned to Dallas to join the W.B. Carrell Clinic.

Dr. Klein is available to see and treat patients with shoulder and elbow pain and related problems throughout the Dallas, Plano, and Frisco, TX, area. Specializing in shoulder and elbow surgery, he offers appointments at our offices in Dallas and Frisco.

In his spare time, Dr. Klein enjoys spending time with his wife, dancing with his 3 young girls, and playing tennis and golf.
