IF YOU LIVE AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE, YOU RUN THE RISK OF INJURY

No one wants to think about it, but if you are an athlete, are active, or are always on the move with work and family, you can put tremendous pressure on your knees, your hips, your shoulders, your back, your ankles and feet, even your hands and wrists. Over time, or suddenly without warning, injury can occur.

DR. EDWIN TAEGEL UNDERSTANDS

Should the unthinkable happen, and any of these areas is injured to the point where an arthroscopic or orthopedic surgeon may be called for, you can feel safe and secure in the hands of long-time Houston arthroscopic and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Edwin Taegel.

With an emphasis on sports medicine for recreational athletes, Dr. Taegel understands, and has treated such conditions as:

• Shoulders – Impingement Syndrome, AC Arthritis, SLAP Lesions, Rotator Cuff Tears, and Dislocations
• Knees – Meniscal Tears, ACL Ruptures, Subluxing & Dislocating Pateliae (kneecaps), and Joint Surface (articular) Defects
• Hips & Joints – Fractures, Arthritis, Degeneration Requiring Replacement Surgery
• Low Backs – Arthritis, Sciatica, Lumbar Disc Disease
• Feet – Flat Feet, Bunions, Corns & Calluses, Hammer Toes
• Hands – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Trigger Finger

HOUSTON’S VETERAN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

Dr. Taegel has been handling sports medicine and general orthopedic issues for teens, adults, and senior citizens since 1968. In private practice as an orthopedic surgeon in Houston, he has performed tens of thousands of procedures.

He prides himself on being a caring, personable, empathetic orthopedic surgeon who feels great joy and personal satisfaction from returning his Houston patients to active health.

HOUSTON’S PIONEER ARTHROSCOPIC SURGEON

In addition to his experience as a general orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Taegel is one of the original pioneers in the field of Arthroscopic Surgery in the United States. Starting in 1973, he, along with several other surgeons in private practice, helped develop the minimally invasive technology that was later adopted by hospitals nationwide.

This makes Dr. Taegel an arthroscopic surgeon with a difference. He’s been there since the beginning, and has seen the role of the arthroscopic surgeon, and the surgery itself, expand throughout sports and orthopedic medicine. Widely published, Dr. Taegel continues to be a voice on the cutting edge of new advancements in the field.

YOUR ARTHROSCOPIC AND ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

Practicing mostly from his convenient, easily accessible Houston office (free and plentiful parking!), Dr. Taegel brings a simple philosophy to his role as orthopedic surgeon and arthroscopic surgeon: to provide the treatment and procedure you need (and only what you need) carefully, quickly, and compassionately…

SO YOU CAN GET BACK TO YOUR ACTIVE LIFE.
