Welcome to Orthopaedic Specialists of Austin

Orthopaedic Specialists of Austin OfficeWhat sets Orthopaedic Specialists of Austin apart? Our team is comprised of core specialists, each practicing exclusively in a specific field of orthopedics. This means that your exact needs can be taken care of with the most precise level of expertise. From head to toe, each part of the body is covered by a different fellowship-trained doctor, as it should be. For example, if you have both a herniated disc and carpal tunnel syndrome, you will receive treatment from both our spine specialist and our hand/wrist/elbow specialist.

Through innovative techniques, minimally invasive procedures, and advanced orthopedic surgery, our practice serves Austin, the heart of Travis County and Central Texas. In every case, OSA physicians draw from their concentrated knowledge base to provide diagnostic precision and individualized patient care. Our promise is to deliver an ideal treatment plan that integrates our conservative philosophy of utilizing the least invasive option for the quickest recovery possible.

What to expect as a research subject participant:
Each patient who qualifies as a potential research participant will be walked through an informed consent process by a member of our clinical research team. Your decision to participate in a study is completely voluntary; and if enrolled, you may decide to withdraw at any point without consequence.  Throughout your participation, our clinical research team will be there for you every step of the way, providing extensive and personalized follow-ups aimed at meeting your individual needs as well as those needs for the study.  Some studies involve nothing more than documenting routine follow-up for a particular procedure, while other studies ensure more detailed and long term follow-up and health monitoring are carried out in order to detect small changes which may occur with a particular technology.  If you have any questions related to research studies at TIHKS please contact our Clinical Research Coordinator: Jake Rabin at jrabin@orthoaustin.com.
