Personal Statement

Dr. Stafford is a board certified orthopedic surgeon with a primary focus on joint replacement surgery. This includes the latest and most current technology involving hip, knee and shoulder replacement. He performs anterior approach hip replacement, as well as total knee and robotic assisted MAKO partial knee replacements. Complex arthritic shoulder conditions are also treated utilizing either conventional or reverse total shoulder replacement as indicated.

These procedures are performed at Memorial Hermann Memorial City’s recently opened Center for Advanced Orthopedics. This is an impressive state-of-the-art facility dedicated to providing patients with an exceptional hospital experience. The entire process from pre-admit testing, pre-operative informational seminars, perioperative care, pain management and Physical Therapy Joint Camps have all been carefully optimized and streamlined to provide a goal-oriented, rapid return to functional recovery.

A native Texan, Dr. Stafford was raised in the greater Houston area. He completed both medical school and residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch - Galveston, graduating in 1998. He became Board-Certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery in July 2000. Dr. Stafford was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons during ceremonies held at the Academy's 69th annual meeting in 2001. Dr. Stafford participates in the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery Maintenance of Certification program, completing the rigorous requirements and becoming recertified in 2011.

Along with his interest in joint replacement, Dr. Stafford also practices General Orthopedics. He performs a variety of minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures addressing non-arthritic shoulder and knee conditions.
