Dr. Gonzalez is a native of San Antonio, and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School. After obtaining his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas at Austin and Medical Doctor Degree from The University of Texas Health Science Center Medical School at San Antonio in 1980 he promptly entered the United States Army. His army career spanned over 21 years of dedicated service. He received advanced surgical training at Brooke Army Medical Center, completing an internship in General Surgery, and then completing his Residency in Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Gonzalez advanced further and completed a two-year fellowship that included Basic Science Research and Sports Medicine Surgery at the distinguished United States Military Academy at West Point. His first assignment was as a flight surgeon in Korea. Here he flew helicopters as a Captain and was chosen to serve as the officer in charge of the U.S. Army's largest health clinic in that country.

Being a former professional athlete, Dr. Gonzalaez has performed numerous injections and operations on my knees throughout the years. Dr. Gonzalez and Christine Decker made sure that I had all of the resources available to recover to the greatest potential. I can still function athletically and in day to day life thanks to this team. A++ individuals with compassion and understanding of all the available options that are present for each individual situation.

Totally would recommend Dr. Gonzalez and his staff to friends, family and patients for their compassionate and knowledgeable services. From the first phone call to walking out the door after my appointment I had welcoming and excellent service. I was informed of my options for treatment and not pressured into any rush decisions. I was able to go home with medical advice and discuss with my family surgery options. I felt like I had known Dr. Gonzalez for years but it was just my first time visit.
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr Gonzalez was very attentive, thorough, and knowledgable. He took the time to listen and answer all my questions. He explained my condition very clearly, and went over my options. His staff was also very friendly, and accommodating. They were able to schedule the same day. Would definitely recommend him!
