I absolutely love going to Dr. Blais. He has your interest at heart. He is a very kind person and he listens to you. I have never been rushed. One thing I like is he asks you questions as well and I appreciate that so much. Sometimes we as patients forget to mention something. This doctor truly cares about his patients and I feel very good when I leave the office . He is one my favorite doctors that I have ever had and and I’m 69! I would recommend him to everyone. His staff is wonderful too. I go to the Lakeway office most of the time but I will go further to see him . I really have to trust my doctors (I am extra picky) so I hope this helps people feel like they have found the right person.

I have seen Dr Blais a few times in the last couple years and him and his staff are extraordinary. I have only the highest praise from my experience and would highly recommend anybody who is dealing with knee shoulder or elbow issues to put their full trust in him and his highly experienced staff.

Dr. Blais always allows me to be part of the decision-making process for my care. I really like that a lot. He’s very intelligent, but mostly, I appreciate that he knows his stuff. He also gives the time you need to ask questions.

Excellent! He's a good doctor, the kind that puts a patient at ease, explains what's up, and cuts to the chase on what to do. Put your hands in his hands (if you have a hand ailment, as I did).

Dr. Blais is very professional. I feel a sense of comfort when discussing my knees. He carefully examines my knees even when I feel pain. He provides options for me. I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Blais as my ortho doctor!

I rolled my ankle while running at Town Lake. I called Texas Orthopedics and they were able to get an appointment at 8:00am the next morning. I was so relieved because we were going on vacation the day after that. Dr. Blais was prompt and spent time examining my ankle and explaining the x-ray results.. He then explained what a torn ligament is. My only complaint is that when I got home I couldn't read the notes he gave me because of the handwriting. The office helped with that. : )

About Me

My specific areas of interest include total joint replacements and I perform direct anterior hip replacements. I also perform reverse total shoulder arthroplasties. I also have extensive training experience with musculoskeletal trauma involving the upper and lower extremities. I provide services at the Level I trauma center in Austin at Brackenridge Hospital and have been on staff there treating tauma patients for many years. My approach to patient care is very conservative and I like to have patients involved in the decision making process and I welcome patient input into their conditions and we provide extensive preoperative counseling prior to nonemergent surgical intervention. I believe in trying nonsurgical methods first, such as injections, physical therapy, and bracing prior to major surgery.Less...
