Dr. Elbaz's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Elbaz "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"

I saw Dr. Elbaz who diagnosed an injury to my left knee as a meniscus tear. Dr. Elbaz advised that he thought the tear could be repaired with physical therapy. After a second opinion from another surgeon who insisted it could not be repaired with physical therapy and I would have to have surgery. I heeded Dr. Elbaz's recommendation to do the physical therapy and it worked. The tear completely healed and the use of my knee was returned to normal.

As a nurse practitioner I am very careful who I choose as my doctor. I always research the doctor's background and awards, but most of all I ask other nurses and doctors. I have been a patient of Dr. Elbaz for 5 years for hip arthritis which recently caused severe pain and hip replacement. Dr. Elbaz has extensive experience and expertise in anterior hip replacement which has a fast recovery. I have recovered and am active without pain! He has a great personality, and is friendly and supportive.

You did my Right Hip Replacement 9 years ago in Cypress Texas. It is still great. No problem. However my Left Hip needs replacement. I live in Henderson Nevada. I am seeing Dr Rick Woodworth. I am planing to have my left hip replaced 28 April. I hope the procedure is as successful as your. Any words of wisdom? John Kent 281 796 1183 Born Montreal: December 05, 1942 Johnadamkentsr@att.net

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.

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!!
