Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

When it comes to taking care of your body, nothing beats experience. Dr. Bryan performs over 230 total knee replacements and 50 uni-compartmental knee replacements annually. The Houston Business Journal recently named Dr. Bryan as one of Houston's top surgeons for knee replacements based on a national study reviewing more than 16,000 surgeons nationwide along with 3,575 hospitals. The research, compiled by nonprofit ProPublica, was gathered using Medicare payment data from 2009 to 2013. It looked at eight common elective surgeries performed typically on healthy patients. They reported using an adjusted complication rate to discover where a surgeon falls. Dr. Bryan was one of only a handful of physicians named in the article. He attributes his success to years of experience, attention to detail and strong patient communication. "I can't overstate the importance of the patient's role in their recovery. Properly preparing patient's for a successful surgery and rehabilitation are essential for a healthy recovery."Read more

Several family members have had knees and shoulders replace by Dr Bryan so it was a no brainier when I started having knee trouble. Dr Bryan and his staff are the most professional in the business. I had to have a meniscus tear repaired and Dr Bryan did an awesome job. I checked into the outpatient center at 5:30 am and walked out of the hospital at 10:30 am the same day with little to no pain.

I really like how personable Dr. Bryan and his staff are. They take such good care and treat you like a person and not a number. I highly recommend Dr. Bryan!
