Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center’s Orthopedics Program Nationally Recognized by U.S. News & World Report

Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center has been nationally ranked in the top 50 orthopedics programs in the country. “Memorial Hermann | Rockets Orthopedics provides personalized high-quality care for all ages and abilities, athletes and non-athletes alike,” said Timothy Couture, vice president of the Orthopedic Service Line at Memorial Hermann Health System. “We are extremely proud to see our orthopedics program receive national recognition, validating the hard work and dedication of our Orthopedic Surgeons, Hospital Operations team and Service Line team display on a daily basis.” 

Memorial Hermann | Rockets Orthopedics’ team of affiliated physicians, orthopedic surgeons, therapists and trainers work with patients to develop individualized and comprehensive treatment programs – from injury prevention and evaluation to orthopedic surgery and post-injury rehabilitation – that are designed to help patients of all ages and physical conditions return to leading active lifestyles in a safe, effective and timely manner. Of course, one does not need to be an athlete to receive orthopedic care from Memorial Hermann, but all patients can expect to receive the same, unparalleled care that the Houston Rockets have relied on for their athletes for nearly 20 years.
