Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fagelman "I believe in a conservative, non-operative approach to all orthopedic care when possible. Most shoulder problems can and should be initially treated with non-operative care.  Therapy is an incredible tool than can produce incredible results.  However, there are times when surgery is the best (not necessarily the only) solution to a particular problem.  It is my job to match the best treatment to each individual patient."

Dr. Fagelman and his staff are always very friendly and extremely prompt every time I have been in his office. Ortho Texas is a wonderful facility - always clean and the waiting area is quite comfortable. Dr. Fagelman replaced my shoulder and because of his care, I have recovered quite rapidly. I thoroughly trust his judgment and would definitely go back to him for any further orthopedic surgical needs. He is extremely proficient in his field. I would recommend him and Ortho Texas to anyone

I had excellent results from rotator cuff surgery performed by Dr. Fagleman. He and his staff are very kind, caring and professional. All my appointments were easily scheduled and I had very short wait times. I received detailed instructions about my surgery, recovery and rehabilitation afterwards. The physical therapy clinic at OrthoTexas is excellent. They took time for personal attention and provided complete instructions for home exercise. Great facility, spacious and plenty of equipment

Seven years ago I injured my elbow and was referred to Dr Fagelman by my family physician. I was very impressed with Dr. Fagelman ' s knowledge and his caring attitude. He always made me feel like I was the only patient he had. He never rushes and seriously listens to you. Earlier this year I fell and injured my wrist, hand and elbow. After a misdiagnosis by a wrist ortho the ER sent me to, I went to dr Fagelman who, correctly diagnosed the fracture and began treatment. He actually cares.

Dr. Fagelman is by far the best doctor I have had for any of my health care needs. He performed surgery on both my shoulders for a torn rotator cuff. His bedside manner is the best. He takes genuine care for his patients and answered all my questions. He was very thorough in explaining the procedures and the recovery. Also, his staff, Rich, his P.A., and Lisette, his assistant, are fantastic. They are both warm and friendly and very knowledgeable in their respective field.

I have used this Ortho Group numerous times. I had two knee surgeries with Dr Wheless(who has retired) and now have had my rotator cuff surgery with Dr Fagelman. My mother had numerous breaks and repairs in her last few years with a few of the other doctors. I would not consider going anyplace else and I would definitely recommend the group. I grew very fond of both doctors in the extended treatments after surgery. They made me feel like I was family and explained and discussed any questions.

Dr. Fagelman did a wonderful job with my shoulder (rotator cuff) surgery. This was the 3rd time I had torn my right shoulder and it was a mess. Now 5 months later I am back on the golf course with no pain. He was always very prompt with his office visits with virtually no waiting time. I highly recommend him!

Fagelman botched rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder, I wasted a year of my active life due to him, I am having the shoulder done again my a real shoulder surgeon in July 2017
in Frisco, TX |
Where to start... Dr. Fagelman has been working on both my shoulders over the last 8 months. First the left then the right. Rotator Cuff Tendon repairs and Biceps Tenodesis. Both Dr. Fagelman and his PA Rich are extremely knowledgeable and easy to understand. Bedside manner exceeds any doctor I have ever had to work with, my own or my spouse's. I would proudly recommend Dr. Fagelman to anyone in need of Orthopedic care to shoulders or elbow.
in The Colony, TX |
My first appointment with Dr. Fagelman was reassuring. I left feeling confident that he was capable of repairing my shoulder and restoring it (his estimate to 90% function).

Fagelman did two shoulder-bicep surgeries on me over a 12 month period. He is great at what he does. I was inquiring about a shoulder replacement due to arthritis and deterioration. Dr Fagelman actually talkme of it and came up with a better solution. Good bedside manner, and someone I would highly recommend. His PA Rich is alos top knotch. Class act all the way around.
