I was so impressed with Katika Gonzalez, her ease of scheduling, contacting my insurance company and her knowledge made me feel very comfortable with all my questions, and there were a lot. Everything was seamless when all the scheduling was done. I left the office without any questions and above all a piece of mind.
Thank you for sharing your experience with our team. We are glad to we were able to make the scheduling process seamless. We greatly appreciate your support & recommendation and hope to continue working with you. If you need anything for the future, please let us know and we would be happy to help.

I called for days to try to get an appointment to see Dr Elbaz, no one returned my call. I was in so much pain, I went to his office. I was literally crying with pain and he refused to see me, said he did not have time. And did not refer me to anyone. Said he didn't know who to refer me to. Horrible horrible Doctor!! Do not go to him!!
We apologize for your negative experience with our team. We understand your frustration with the service provided. We take all of our reviews as feedback on how to improve our business. It is not our intention to provide such an experience. We want to make things right for you. If you could give me a call at 281-664-2129, I would like to speak with you further regarding this matter. Thank you.

Dr. Elbaz says...

Alain Elbaz, M.D. relocated his practice from Montreal, Canada and has practiced orthopedic surgery in Houston, Texas since 1998. He joined Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine L.L.P. in 2001. Dr. Elbaz graduated from the University of Montreal in Orthopedics in 1993. He is ABOS board certified

 

Dr. Elbaz has practiced orthopedics and sports medicine with increasing emphasis on the treatment of shoulder disorders. He obtained extra training in open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery in Lyons, France with Dr. Gilles Walch. He is very conservative in his approach. He uses the most advanced, and least invasive techniques. He routinely performs arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs and arthroscopic Bankart repairs. In addition he is one of the few surgeons in Houston, Texas that has trained in Lyons, France to perform the Latarjet shoulder stabilization procedure.

 

Dr Elbaz also has a keen interest in hip replacement surgery. He has performed many hip replacements but was unsatisfied with the most common techniques because they involved cutting through healthy muscle and tendon. He trained in the anterior muscle sparing hip replacement procedure with Dr. Joel Matta on two occasions in Los Angeles , California. This operation allows the surgeon access to the hip joint without cutting into any muscle and with the aid of real time x-ray he is able to place the components in the optimal position and assure optimal leg length.

 

He enjoys practicing at advanced orthopedics because of the emphasis that is placed on providing patients with the most current, peer-reviewed treatments in a friendly down to earth atmosphere
