He also holds an interest in targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), a surgery that can alleviate post-operative nerve pain for amputees. Dr. Vial enjoys the complexity of upper extremity surgery and utilizes a multimodal, evidence-based approach to treatment. He believes that the best outcomes occur when the patient shares in the decision-making process; therefore, he prioritizes ensuring his patients understand their diagnosis and treatment options.
Originally from Katy, Texas, Dr. Brian Vial spent his childhood in the Cinco Ranch area. He graduated with his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 2010. He then moved to the Texas Medical Center in Houston to attend medical school at Baylor College of Medicine where he graduated in 2014. He went on to complete his orthopedic surgery residency at Baylor College of Medicine in 2019. He received the prestigious Bronze Hammer Award, given yearly to one fourth-year resident and voted on by faculty and peers in residency. This award provided the opportunity for him to complete an AO Trauma Fellowship in Barcelona, Spain, during his chief year. During his fourth year of residency, his chairman and program director selected him to represent the program at the AOA Resident Leadership Forum. Dr. Brian Vial then went on to complete his fellowship training at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2020. This was a unique experience as he trained with both plastic and orthopedic surgeons, affording him a wide breadth of operative skills for the hand and upper extremity. He is excited to move back to the Houston area and join our team here at AOSM in August 2020.
In addition to his medical interests, he enjoys spending time with his wife, new daughter, and labradoodle Barley. His personal interests include sports, trivia, traveling, world history, and movies.
