Alain E. Elbaz, M.D.
Alain Elbaz, M.D. relocated his practice from Montreal, Canada and has practiced orthopedic surgery in Houston, Texas since 1998. He is one of the four founding members of Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine L.L.P (2001). Dr. Elbaz graduated from the University of Montreal in Orthopedics in 1993. He is ABOS board certified in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.
Dr. Elbaz has practiced orthopedics and sports medicine with an emphasis on the treatment of shoulder disorders. He obtained extra training in open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery and total shoulder replacements in Lyons, France with Dr. Gilles Walch in 2004. He performs in office ultrasound exams and ultrasound guided injections. He routinely performs arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs and shoulder instability surgery. He performs primary and reverse total shoulder surgery. He has performed thousands of shoulder procedures over the past 25 years.
Dr. Elbaz has performed many anterior hip replacement surgeries. He is a founding member of the North Cypress Total Joint Center where he introduced anterior hip replacement surgery. He prefers this type of hip replacement because it is more accurate and can be done without cutting any muscles which leads to a much faster recovery. Currently, he uses Double Mobility hip replacement which virtually eliminates the risk of hip dislocations, gives a more natural feel and allows patients the confidence to return to sports and other activities.
Dr. Elbaz has done knee replacements for over 25 years using the best and most recent technologies. Over the last 4 years, he has used the medial pivot knee system because of the more natural feel and stability. In addition, he uses computer generated custom instruments which helps achieve greater accuracy and better outcomes. For people with unusual knee anatomy, he does Conformis custom knee replacements.
Finally, Dr. Elbaz is an expert in the use of PRP (platelet rich plasma) and other biologic therapies such as bone marrow concentrate and Lipogems. He has been using PRP since 2003 in surgery and then in the office. With the use of these biologic therapies he has avoided more aggressive treatments in patients not wanting surgery, or patients who because of associated medical conditions are not candidates for surgery.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Patel is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. She is pretty good at her job. She makes it plain and simple. She is also very thoughtful. I was very glad to have met her.
Dr. Alain Elbaz is one of the most progressive orthopedic surgeons in the state. I’ve received PRP injections and hyaluronic acid injections in my aging and damaged joints allowing me to continue my daily jogging
Dr. Patel has been a great Doctor for me. When I was referred to after discussion we decided to do injections in my back.
I was at your office yesterday saw Dr Mack & Dr Brooks I had a great visit with them. My right knee feels GREAT! today.
My son and husband have both been seen here. The staff is very polite and helpful. Dr. Mohr performed my husband’s back surgery.
So I was going to get on here and brag about what a great surgeon Dr. Cubbage is. But Cubbage is only 3/4 of the picture. He’ll fix you, but Karen is the one that will care for you and heal you!
Dr. Patel has been great at my pain relief. She doesn’t force me to take any meds I don’t want, or injections. She will give me the injection I want when I need it. Great friendly Doctor.
It has been eight weeks since my partial knee replacement and now I realized just how much I was missing. Having it done has made such a difference to my life. For a start my leg is now straight and my knees actually touch!
I have to give everyone 5 stars from the front office and staff to Dr. Blalock and Dr. Patel all were great with very professional service.
Advanced Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has, at 76, virtually given me a new lease on being mobile and active. I have seen Dr’s Tanous, Patel, and Cubbage for an assortment of neck, spine and hip problems.
