I have had four surgeries performed by three of the docs at FOG (they need to change their name). I initially chose Dr. Cain (knee specialist now deceased) because he was the Oilers ortho doc. He was the slight of build guy who used to run out on the field when a player went down. Since that first surgery in 1982 (cartilage, right knee), I have had two additional cartilage repairs, another right knee in 2002 and a left knee cartilage last month. In addition, I have had a right shoulder operation and several visits for plantar faciitis. No problems and a quick recovery. I have recommended several of my friends that I compete against and they have had similar experiences. The Texas Orthopedic Hospital facility is first class, just like the docs. They ain't cheap but do you really want a cut rate doc to cut your body? One final note If you don't use Fondren Orthos. use someone that just treats your injury and NOTHING ELSE. If you go to a specialist that says he/she does it all (shoulders knees, hands, etc,), leave that office as soon as possible.
