Consult With a Knee Joint Specialist in Houston, TX
Knee pain can be a sign of an injury or arthritis, both of which can potentially worsen without treatment. In either case, it’s best to seek prompt medical attention from a joint specialist. This medical professional has the focused training and experience necessary to diagnose and address a full spectrum of joint conditions, some of which can be difficult to identify and complex to treat (for instance, “arthritis” is an umbrella term that refers to more than 100 specific joint conditions). Additionally, many joint specialists concentrate their practice on a specific joint, such as the knee.
If you’re in the Houston, Texas, area, you can consult with an experienced knee joint specialist at Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Our well-respected team includes Thomas L. Tanous, Jr., M.D.; David R. Mack, M.D.; Alain E. Elbaz, M.D.; and Drew M. Fehsenfeld, M.D., Ph.D.
When to see a knee joint specialist
Here are some symptoms that should be brought to the attention of a knee joint specialist, especially if the discomfort persists for more than a few days or several painful episodes occur during one month:
- Knee pain, swelling or stiffness
- Redness or warmth around a knee
- Difficulty moving a knee or performing daily activities
An accurate diagnosis from a joint specialist is the first step toward finding an effective treatment plan for knee pain. Additionally, some knee conditions require prompt action. For instance, certain types of arthritis can lead to permanent joint damage if left untreated.
If you’re experiencing knee pain or other symptoms, a knee joint specialist at Advanced Orthopaedics can get you started on the road to relief. Contact us to request an appointment with Dr. Tanous, Dr. Mack, Dr. Elbaz or Dr. Fehsenfeld at one of our offices in the Houston, TX, area.

I flew in for my appointment in the middle of Covid. He was recommended as a top ortho by my employer’s medical concierge team. He is incredible… surgery a breeze on my knee… zero pain the next day. His team and office staff are top notch – on par with Mayo Clinic. We are fortunate to have doctors like him…
Dr. Tanous is the ultimate professional. He was well read, personable, and has provided excellent treatment. He was highly recommended to me and I highly recommend him for orthopedic care and treatment.
Dr. Mohr saved my life. I was told I would never walk again and he took my case. He is the best surgeon in the world. Visits are great, he explains everything to where I understand everything. He’s the best.
I have been going to Dr. Fehsenfeld for almost 10 years now and he has been nothing but amazing. He always gives his patients the time they need and sits down and talks with them about their injury and different recovery options. He has done both of my knee surgeries and I have had no issues with them and quick…
Dr. Mack and all the staff are professional and courteous. Dr. Mack came highly recommended, and I was very satisfied with his diagnosis and subsequent treatment. I would recommend him without reservation.
Dr. Fehsenfeld is one of the best. He talks to me on a regular level, & he performed ACL surgery on my oldest son. My boy recovered back to 100% within no time. I went to see about my shoulder, & I was in/out within an hour. That includes X-ray, diagnosis, talking, and the remedy. Dr. Drew is the most…
We brought our son to see Dr. Tessier for a medial epicondyle stress fracture on his throwing elbow. Dr. Tessier explained in detail the extent of the injury and thoroughly answered all of our questions. He developed a treatment plan to help him move towards recovery so that he can be back on the field next year. We have seen…
I’ve seen Dr. Brooks twice now for both of my shoulders and he has given me injections both times. I’m extremely impressed by his injection skills and I always get relief from them. I highly recommend Dr. Brooks, and his MA is very sweet and caring. They also have X-ray and ultrasound on site, which makes things easier.
Dr. Mack and his staff has been a blessing to me and my family. His patience and listening ear has greatly enhanced my quality of care and confidence in his abilities as a surgeon. I undoubtedly recommend him to anyone who is in pain and considering surgery as an option. I am sure your questions will be answered and your…
We did not have an appointment, but I was concerned my son had broken his hand. I called and was given an appointment within an hour. Dr. Vial was great, the person who did his cast was wonderful, and we were in and out within an hour. Fantastic staff and excellent customer service!
