Dr. Blais' bio
This content was provided by Dr. Blais "Dr. Robert Blais attended the University of Miami School of Medicine and received his medical degree from the University of Florida in Gainesville. He completed his internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery and a member of both the American Medical Association and Travis County Medical Association. Dr. Blais has assisted people with serious injuries to their arms and legs for many years. This includes setting and fixing broken bones and repairing and reconstructing damaged joints. He is one of only eight orthopedic surgeons who treats patients with severe bone injuries at University Medical Center at Brackenridge. He uses arthroscopic and standard incision techniques to repair damaged joints. Dr. Blais performs an innovative procedure for shoulder replacement surgery using reverse shoulder implants for patients with damaged rotator cuff muscles. He can also treat arthritic hip joints using anterior incision hip replacements, which results in a much faster recovery for his patients. Dr. Blais has performed many endoscopic carpal tunnel releases for carpal tunnel syndrome."
This content was provided by Dr. Blais "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."
