Knee Replacement Surgery Performed at Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine of Houston, TX
Knee replacement surgery may be recommended for people who are experiencing a significant reduction in their quality of life as a result of a chronic condition such as arthritis or a traumatic knee injury such as a compound fracture. At Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we perform knee replacements for residents of Houston, Texas, and other nearby areas, using today’s latest techniques to improve patient outcomes.
During knee replacement surgery, the damaged portion of the knee joint is removed and the surface of the bone is smoothed over. In a partial replacement, only one part of the knee is operated on; in a total replacement, three separate parts are addressed. Partial knee replacements can be less invasive than total knee replacements for patients who are good candidates for the procedure. A small device is then implanted to replicate the natural shape and structure of the joint and facilitate a normal range of motion.
At Advanced Orthopedics, our Houston facility has a team of board-certified and double-board-certified orthopedists who specialize exclusively in knee surgery. These medical professionals perform knee replacement surgery using both traditional and minimally invasive techniques. The minimally invasive approach is considered in many situations for its ability to provide a number of benefits, such as:
- Better aesthetic outcomes
- Lower complication rates
- Faster healing
Minimally invasive surgeries can also have shorter recovery times than their traditional counterparts. On average, Advanced Orthopaedics’ patients spend just 1.16 days in the hospital after total knee replacement surgery and just 1.02 days in the hospital after a unilateral knee replacement.
If indicated, we can also use a custom knee replacement implant that’s been tailored to the patient’s unique anatomy, leading to a higher degree of comfort and long-term performance. As a result of our individualized care, Advanced Orthopaedics has helped thousands of patients live more comfortable and active lives since our founding in 1983.

What Our Patients Are Saying
When I started, I couldn’t put any weight on my right leg and now I can do virtually anything. While I hope to not need future therapy, this is without a doubt the place I will return to in the future.
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.
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’ve been going to this office to see Dr. Blalock 4 months. He has done 4 different hand surgeries some in February and 1 in April. I probably will need another surgery next year and Dr. Blalock will be my surgeon.
Great experience with Dr. Tanous and staff. Telling our entire family and friends about my husband Mel ‘s injury and the kind and expert care we received . Our thanks and appreciation .
This office did everything they could to get me in timely after a very bad sprain on my ankle. I saw nurse practitioner Stuart who is very thorough and x-rays and explaining everything to me.
I’ve been with this orthopedic group since 2014. I’ve never had a bad experience with the doctors or the staff. Dr. Drew Fehsenfeld did my shoulder surgery in 2016 and he did great!
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. 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
Yes, I would certainly recommend Advanced Orthopedics & Sports Medicine to family & friends.
