Hip core decompression

Over 20 years ago, after being hospitalized in another hospital without a DX I went to him and he found the problem right away. He did surgery and I could walk again. Would go to him again if I still lived in the Houston area.

Unbelievable Surgeon

After suffering with knee pain, lack of mobility and being misdiagnosed by 3 other orthopedict surgeons, for over 3 years, I finally found Dr. Matsu who accurately diagnosed my problem and returned my life to me following successful surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Matsu.

Dr. Matsu performed a reverse shoulder arthroplasty on me, and saved me from loosing the use of my arm. This was after another doctor told me nothing could be done to help me. Dr. Matsu is a brilliant, caring surgeon.
