Hand, Wrist and Elbow Specialist of Houston, Dr. David Hildreth, Now Available in Katy and Sugar Land to Meet Growing Demand

One of the Leading Dupuytren's Specialists in Houston and Named Among the Prestigious List of Texas "Super Doctors," Dr. Hildreth Works to Meet Growing Need for Local Accessibility

HOUSTON - A growing demand for hand, wrist and elbow specialist Dr. David Hildreth, who once practiced exclusively at the Texas Medical Center, has prompted the growth of offices in Sugar Land and Katy. The renowned Houston orthopedic surgeon formerly of Baylor College of Medicine and The Methodist Hospital System is working to meet growing demand since joining The Richmond Bone & Joint Clinic.

Dr. Hildreth is not only available to patients in Richmond, but also now in Sugar Land and Katy. The Sugar Land office is located at 15035 SW Freeway, near Williams Trace Blvd., and the Katy office is located at 21222 Kingsland Blvd.

An original founder of the Tennis Elbow Institute of Houston and among the first Eaton-trained Dupuytren's physicians in Houston, Dr. Hildreth has served as lead investigator in studies changing the treatment options available for many common hand, wrist and elbow conditions.

A published author who served as an associate professor at The Methodist Hospital System and Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Dr. Hildreth stays ahead of "standard of care" to bring his patients such advanced treatment options as Needle Aponeurotomy (NA) and non surgical XIAFLEX® injection therapy in the treatment of Dupuytren's Contracture, as well as less invasive treatment for carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes, sports injuries and degenerative joint conditions.

"Practicing at a specialized orthopedic clinic such as RBJC, we have the advantage of offering the latest treatment options far more rapidly. We devote a tremendous amount of time studying the new techniques and technology within the industry to remain ahead of current 'standards'," said Hildreth.

"These new offices are a response to patients wanting personalized care and easier access to a higher quality of medical services in their neighborhood. We're pleased to be able to provide them with this increased accessibility," added Hildreth.

Featured in "Medical Advances" of Newsweek magazine and named for the fifth consecutive year among the Texas Monthly list of Super Doctors and H Texas magazine's Top Docs, Dr. Hildreth and his staff establish personalized treatment and rehabilitation programs for hand, wrist and elbow patients suffering from both common and specialized injuries and conditions.
