More about Don Buford

Dr. Don Buford founded Texas Orthobiologics so patients can benefit from state of the art and evidence based nonsurgical treatments for conditions like arthritis, back pain, and sports injuries. By closely following clinical results from these regenerative therapies, Dr. Buford hopes to further refine the indications and treatments for many musculoskeletal conditions.

Our Institute's ultimate goal is to maximize our patients' quality of life and minimize their disability from any musculoskeletal condition. We strive to help our patients recover to their desired state of health without surgical procedure. We typically perform our regenerative orthopedic therapies in the office in procedures that takes less than 1 hour. In some cases, we use these PRP and bone marrow derived stem cell injections to assist, accelerate or augment the healing response in conjunction with a surgical procedure.

Dr. Buford has been in practice in Dallas for 20+ years and has been voted multiple times by Dallas area physicians as one of the best orthopedic surgeons. He has also been honored with selection to the Texas "Super Doctors" list multiple times, a list that only 5% of doctors in Texas are selected for.

Dr. Buford attended Stanford University for the first half of his college career. While at Stanford, he was a member of the baseball team and had a double major in economics and Human Biology. He then transferred to USC where he continued his athletic and academic pursuits. In 1988 he received the Woody Hayes NCAA Division I Academic All-American Award for being the single most outstanding NCAA Division I male student-athlete. After graduation from USC, he signed his first professional baseball contract with the Baltimore Orioles and also enrolled at UCLA Medical School. Since 2008, Dr. Buford has been training clinicians on MSK ultrasound and now orthobiologics as the Director of the MSK Ultrasound and Orthobiologics Course.
