Dr. McDonald was excellent. My situation was a broken tibula at the ankle, a simple fix with a boot. But it was handled very professionally and very amicably. I'm glad I didn't have a more serious problem by which to judge him, but I am very pleased!

My experience with Dr. McDonald was outstanding. I came to Texas Orthopedics after a motor vehicle accident that dislocated my knee. I had little to no range of motion in my knee after the initial emergency surgery done at another hospital. Dr. McDonald quickly assessed I was dealing with scar tissue and performed arthroscopic surgery. The difference between when I went in and now is night and day. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. McDonald, his staff and the team at Texas Orthopedics.
