An Experienced Knee Doctor in Houston, TX, Can Diagnose and Treat Your Knee Pain
Knee pain can stem from a wide variety of causes.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Mills is exceptional. I would recommend him to anyone
Dr. Patel is a very good Pain Management Doctor. She is one of my favorite doctors.
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!
Completing forms online beforehand was quick and simple. I arrived 30 minutes prior to my appointment as requested, and was pleasantly surprised to be summonsed less than 10 minutes from arrival.
I was treated by Dr. Brooks, about a month ago, for a terrible pain on my right knee. He treated me and within 2 days I was like new. Now the pain started on my left knee. This time I went immediately to Dr. Brooks.
Dr. Tanous and everyone at Advanced Orthopaedics are great. The surgery to repair my knee injury and the treatment afterwards were handled amazingly well.
Each procedure done by Dr. Patel has been an improvement. Very pleased.
Everyone here is so professional and kind. Everything was explained to me so that could understand what had to be done.
Doctor Brooks is the best. His advice to get lubricant injected into my knees has made my life so much better. Kudos!
Very Knowledgeable and helpful. Went in for an appt. with Dr. Elbaz for tennis elbow. Needed prp injections and they didn’t have an opening til the following week, but since I traveled 2 hrs to their office
