Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Blais' Care Philosophy

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.
