Dr. Ravdel performed an orthoscopic knee surgery on my right knee back in 2012, and now thanks to Dr. Ravdel , I have to have a complete knee replacement. I would never recommend this Dr to anyone. He had a poor bedside manner as well. Plus you really can't understand him.

After searching hi and low for a good orthopaedic doctor/surgeon, I took a gamble and headed for the inner city. West Tidwell and North Sheppard in Houston. Dr. Arnold Ravdel MD is one of the nicest and most fascinating people I've met in quite a long time. History buff, he knows his stuff. He answered all my questions, followed me to the ER for additional x-rays and a hard cast. When he compressed my ankle, it hurt, but I started laughing just so he wouldn't stop.
