About South Texas Bone & Joint

In 1972, South Texas Bone & Joint (formerly Orthopaedic Associates of Corpus Christi) was established to provide multi-specialty, musculoskeletal healthcare services to patients in the immediate and surrounding coastal communities. For over 40 years, we have prided ourselves on providing orthopaedic excellence and have continued to

strive towards finding the best and most-qualified surgeons, physicians, and Board Certified staff. It is with great honor that we continue our mission to serve the citizens of South Texas and beyond.

As a way to continue providing excellent care, our company has expanded within the community by opening numerous Priority Care Clinics. They offer walk-in, no appointment necessary, musculoskeletal-specific care designed with a focus on treating acute orthopaedic injuries. Our Board Certified Sports Medicine Physicians are equipped with immediate digital x-ray technology, musculoskeletal and diagnostic ultrasound, as well as direct patient referrals to any of our renowned surgical teams. This creates a seamless approach to providing efficient and quality care as we treat your specific injury.

Our sub specialty orthopaedic surgeons perform over 4,000 surgeries each year. From minimally invasive arthroscopic interventions to total joint replacements (and everything in between) our team of doctors will offer the most advanced and appropriate type of care for your needs.


Our doctors believe in the healing power of the body and distinguish between when surgery is necessary and when it 

is not the best course of action. Non-surgical treatments options can include - Physical Therapy, Orthobiologics, Pain Management, Casting / Bracing, etc.

Our team also provides Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. Our clinic first opened in December of 2015, and since then has gained major momentum towards building a strong and successful Board Certified team, that not only works hand-in-hand with our team physicians, but with all other referring doctors in the Coastal Bend community. Our fully licensed physical therapy staff helps to aid in your rehabilitation process, following your specific injury or surgical protocol. Our goal is to guide and provide you with the tools you need as you restore your mobility, strength, and overall function. This gives you the continuum of care you deserve as you continue your journey to a healthy recovery and back to an active lifestyle.
