About Our Program

In a move to increase access to convenient, high-quality and comprehensive orthopedic care, joint replacement surgeries once performed at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center are now performed at the Joint Center - Memorial Hermann Orthopedic and Spine Hospital (MHOSH). Centrally located in Bellaire, Texas near The Galleria®, this facility brings Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center’s exemplary standards for patient safety, quality and excellence to a facility that is focused solely on orthopedic and spine care.

From affiliated physicians with academic appointments at McGovern Medical School to Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center support personnel, healthcare providers at MHOSH are well versed in the latest scientific literature, research and treatment options in orthopedic surgery. In addition to educating the next generation of orthopedic surgeons, affiliated physicians and staff are dedicated to helping patients undergo inpatient procedures that restore or improve functionality and allow them to return to an active lifestyle. The convenient central location and small size make it ideal for outpatient surgery. 

While joint replacement surgery is performed at Memorial Hermann Orthopedic and Spine Hospital, pre and post-operative appointments are scheduled in the joint center affiliated surgeons’ clinics, located in the Texas Medical Center. 

The Joint Center and its affiliated physicians offer a full range of non-surgical and surgical options to consider, including:

In addition to total joint surgery, MHOSH affiliated physicians specialize in neurosurgery for spine-related conditions, sports-related spine and orthopedic conditions and injuries. Patients have access to the very latest surgical technology, including minimally invasive, arthroscopic and endoscopic procedures, as well as computer-assisted guidance for joint surgery and spine surgery.

Onsite imaging services (radiology, MRI, CT, fluoroscopy and digital X-ray), in addition to physical and occupational therapy, translate to convenience for patients both pre- and postoperatively. Patients also have a choice to rehabilitate close to home with Memorial Hermann Health System’s extensive network for physical therapy at convenient locations throughout Greater Houston.
