Experience a Legacy of Excellence and Exceptional Hip Care.

Serving the needs of Dallas, Frisco, and the surrounding areas, our hip doctors are world-renowned leaders who are dedicated to providing patients with the specialized hip care they need to get back to an active, healthy life.

Having dedicated their practices to offering patient-centered care, our hip doctors understand that while surgery, such as hip replacement or arthroscopic surgery, may be the best treatment for one patient, another patient may benefit more from a nonsurgical solution, such as an X-ray–guided injection, anti-inflammatory medication, or physical therapy. That's why our specialists are committed to listening to each patient to fully understand their needs and goals before developing a personalized treatment plan.

If surgery is recommended for you and your injury or condition, rest assured that our hip surgeons continue to uphold excellence by keeping up to date with the latest advancements in technology, surgeries, and techniques.
