J. Michael Bennett, M.D.


PERSONAL STATEMENT
I’m focused on the care of my patients and helping them make well-informed decisions about their care.  As an orthopedic surgeon and a sports medicine physician, I specialize in treating injuries and issues affecting the shoulders, elbows, and knees, and some hand and wrist injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger.  I’m trained and experienced in using the most advanced medical procedures and technologies, but I prefer non-surgical or minimally invasive and arthroscopic treatments whenever possible. 

To help my patients understand the anatomy of their injuries and treatment options, I’ve created a series of patient education videos.  Please follow these links for collections of videos covering many shoulder injuries, elbow injuries, knee injuries and certain hand and wrist injuries.  I also treat arthritis affecting shoulders, elbows, and knees.  Please call 713-234-3152 for an appointment.
