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"

Dr. Elbaz has been treating my shoulder for five years. In that time he has worked diligently to find alternatives to surgery to minimize all the downsides of a surgical repair. I appreciate that he takes the time to explore alternatives that minimize recovery even when it means less money for him....more
