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.

What Our Patients Are Saying
I just think that this is the best health care facility to this day. I truly appreciate all the PT, so far they are consider it.
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. 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.
Excellent care and attention to patients. I recently had a total hip replacement and I am able to walk 6 weeks after surgery with no cane.
I have found the staff to be courteous and professional. Lynn and Julie were wonderful to work with and took good care of me. And Dr. Brooks and Dr. Mack are excellent
Dr. Mihu is the most intelligent and polite Dr I have ever visited. Her and her nurse Nicole made me feel so welcomed. I have never encountered a doctor who knew so much and asked so many important questions
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.
I have been fighting chronic knee pain for ten years following a knee replacement, a bone infection, and subsequent knee revision surgery. After a number of failed solutions to pain relief, Dr. Patel introduced me to RF
For the first time in many years and many knee operations on one leg I am without any knee pain. This is a result of a procedure performed by Dr. Patel.
Always treated promptly and kindly at AOSM. Thanks to Dr Mack and his team.
