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.
