Dr. Elkousy is the BEST Period
Fondren Orthopedic is the best of the best and Dr. Elkousy is no exception. I and my loved ones unfortunately have needed their services many times over the last 3 decades. I’m giving my highest recommendation to Dr. Eklousy. There is nothing better than feeling like you’re getting the best advice on the planet when you’re injured.

He was very thorough with my exam and gave me all my options. Didn’t try to lead me in any direction and let me decide the best option. Very knowledgeable in explaining everything to me with detail. Would highly recommend to anybody and would use him again if needed.

Elkousy is an excellent doctor!!! I have had an incident and my ACL was completely torn. He explained and let me know exactly what was wrong and what we were going to do to treat it. He asked me to go to physical therapy a month before the surgery. My surgery went very well and surprisingly I didn’t have any painful. The recovering was very fast and no pain at all. I didn’t take any pain killers medicine. I am very thankful and completely trust him. He is very knowledge and wonderful doctor. If I could give him more than 5 stars, i would.

I was referred by a friend. In one visit he had X-rays done and explained what was happening in my body. My old orthopedic in Angleton missed things due to not ordering an X-ray.

I twisted my knee six months ago while leaping of an escalator. Six months later the pain recurred and decided to see a knee specialist. Consider myself fortunate enough to have found Fondren Ortopaedic Group an Dr Elkousy. After an X-Ray and review he was very detailed and patient in presenting options. I am following those options and can report that 48 hours later I feel much better with the use of an oral anti-inflammatory. Hopefully once an MRI is approved by my Insurance company, we could isolate and treat the root cause currently suspected to be a meniscus or ligament tear. Five Stars so far for Dr. Elkousy.
