Dr. Malek and his staff are very professional, they are all very caring to the patient. Dr. Malek did a total right hip replacement on me in December of 2017, I never had any pain, not even from the incision, I don’t know how he did it, but it has been 3 months now and I never had any pain. I will recommend Dr. Malek and his office to anyone that needs a joint replaced. They treated me very, very well.

Dr Malec's repair of a Intertrochanteric fracture left femur was efficient and minimally invasive. His mannerism is respectful and he has the heart of a teacher.

Dr. Malek and his team were very good to my family and took great care of my mothers tibial break, his attention to detail, bedside manner, and thorough explanation of every aspect of her surgery truly left me in awe. We were at the TexSan and the Phys Therapy along with Dr. Malik's team had clear goals for my mom !! Kudos

Following many months of treatment for back issues which were supposed to be causing my horrific right left discomfort and weakness, I was referred to Dr. Malek for another diagnosis. He replaced my hip (not my back!) joint on the right side and has literally given my life back to me. His sweet, professional staff always seem glad to see me and are ultra-helpful in every way. Dr. Malek is a dynamic, intelligent, caring surgeon I can recommend without any reservations whatsoever.
