Alain Elbaz, M.D., FRCSC, FAAOS, ABOSBoard Certified, American Board of Orthopaedic SurgeryCertified in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine

Dr. Elbaz graduated from the University of Montreal in orthopedic surgery in 1993. He is American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS) certified, Canadian Board certified (FRCSC) and holds a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Orthopedic Sports Medicine. In addition, he is board certified in Canada, and Israel. He holds active licenses to practice orthopedic surgery in Texas, Israel, and Canada.

Alain Elbaz, M.D. moved from Montreal, Canada and has practiced orthopedic surgery in Houston, Texas since 1998. He became a founding partner of Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine and North Cypress Medical Center.

Dr. Elbaz has practiced orthopedics and sports medicine with an emphasis on minimally invasive treatment of shoulder, upper extremity, knee, and lower extremity disorders. He is very conservative in his approach. He uses the most advanced, and least invasive techniques. He has routinely performed arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs and arthroscopic Bankart repairs. In addition, he was one of the few surgeons in Houston, Texas that has trained in Lyons, France to perform the Latarjet shoulder stabilization procedure.

Dr Elbaz is a recognized expert in the new field of biologic orthopedics and orthobiologic agents. Orthobiologics is a part of medicine, which uses natural substances, or biologics, from one’s own body to treat musculoskeletal injuries, tendon injuries, muscle injuries, (and) osteoarthritis.

He believes that orthobiologic medicine is going to change the landscape of orthopedic surgery. He has performed PRP treatments since 2003 and then started using bone marrow concentrate and fat as a source of progenitor cells and growth factors. Currently he uses both PRP/PRF (platelet rich fibrin) for most treatments as a source of cells and growth factors. For more complex or chronic cases he will use bone marrow concentrate or adipose tissue (fat). Often, he will combine arthroscopic surgery with orthobiologics to enhance healing and avoid joint replacement. He has used the combined treatment since 2003 and is very satisfied with his results. He has done over 10,000 ultrasound guided injections since 2009.

Dr Elbaz made Aliya to Israel in 2020. He visited the country many times with his family and fell in love with the land and the people. He would like to bring his own perspective related to musculoskeletal care to Israel. He recently obtained his license to practice medicine from the ministry of health and has been granted his specialist certificate (board certification).
