Dr. Elkousy is a board certified orthopedic surgeon with subspecialty certification in sports medicine and a proud member of the Fondren Orthopedic Group and Texas Orthopedic Hospital. His practice has particular experience in addressing injuries of the shoulder, knee, and proximal hamstring ruptures.
The rotator cuff is a group of tendons in the shoulder that provide support and enable a wide range of motion of the shoulder joint.
The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major stabilizing ligaments in the knee.
Proximal hamstring tears are uncommon injuries, but when they occur, they can be disabling.
Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which an arthroscope is inserted into the shoulder joint. The benefits of arthroscopy are smaller incisions, faster healing, a more rapid recovery, and less scarring. Arthroscopic surgical procedures are often performed on an outpatient basis and the patient is able to return home on the same day.
I freaking love this man. He was my surgeon when I was 15 years old. I had broken fibula and torn the ligaments in my ankle. i was down for nearly 6 months, but Dr. E, as I call him, took very good care of me. being 15 at the time, my favorite part about the whole ordeal was that after surgery number 2. He gave me option of keeping them which I still have today, nearly 6 years later. In total Dr. E performed 2 surgeries, the first being drilling a metal plate onto my fibula and holding it with 7 screws/pins and inside my ankle he placed another 2 screws/pins. 3 months later, he went back in my ankle and replaced those 2 screws with smaller ones, so I wouldn't have any complications down the road, which I am happy to say thus far I haven't. Dr E was the first surgeon I have ever had seeing as I have never been sick before/injured before, so of course I was nervous, but he made my experience wonderful with his caring touch.
After Dr. Elkousy repaired my daughter's ACL LCL torn knee so beautifully, I went back to him first thing when my son broke his collarbone in a snowboarding incident. Once again we experienced an extremely positive pre-surgical and surgical experience with Dr. Elkousy and Fondren Orthopedic Group. The administration / staff / nurses / pa and doctor were attentive, caring, professional and talented - would definitely use him again. He has a peaceful, kind and very knowledgeable / professional demeanor. I highly recommend him for knee and shoulder injuries. The construction of the building was somewhat off-putting as it shut down one elevator, but the lobby staff were very kind and helpful and worked hard to help people get where they needed to be, and showed us other stairs and elevators to keep the interior traffic flowing.
