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
I highly recommend Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine whenever the need arises for great orthopaedic surgeons.
AOSM is a very high quality medical facility. They handled my hip replacement both pre and post op with the utmost professionalism.
Dr. Cubbage & Staff replaced a disc that had been destroyed between my 4th and 5th vertebra. This is my 4th month since the surgery in January of 2018. I was very impressed with their dedication
Doctor Brooks is the best. His advice to get lubricant injected into my knees has made my life so much better. Kudos!
On Nov. 22, 2017, I had a spinal injection in my lower back and it was an instant miracle in my life!
Dr. Ryan Blalock is AMAZING! He went above and beyond to fix my 8 year old son’s severely broken arm with emergency surgery.
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
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!
So I was going to get on here and brag about what a great surgeon Dr. Cubbage is. But Cubbage is only 3/4 of the picture. He’ll fix you, but Karen is the one that will care for you and heal you!
Always treated promptly and kindly at AOSM. Thanks to Dr Mack and his team.
