Dr. Conway is a Board Certified and Fellowship-trained Sports Medicine Orthopedic Surgeon practicing in Fort Worth, Texas, currently specializing in sports and active lifestyle medicine, with an emphasis on upper extremity sports medicine, baseball medicine, and complex shoulder and elbow reconstruction. He is nationally recognized as an authority on shoulder and elbow injuries in overhead athletes as well as an expert in the care of elbow injuries in professional rodeo.
I had an excellent experience considering I was there because I destroyed my elbow. I met with different surgeons and while I got the same opinions, Dr. Conway spent time to go over the procedure and what to expect afterwards. He went into detail about all the options which made me feel more comfortable before he repaired my elbow. He made sure I was happy and healthy before he released me to work. 5/5 recommend if you find yourself needing a great surgeon.
There are no words to explain what an awesome experience my son has had with Dr. Conway. His professionalism, training and his ability to relate to younger patients is outstanding. He is a meticulous surgeon and truly cares about his patients.
Dr. Conway is very thorough and explains everything to ensure we understand. Shortly after reading an elbow MRI, Dr. Conway insisted that a Tommy John surgery was required to repair some damage. We felt pressured to get it done ASAP. We got other opinions and he ended up in rehab for 3 months. After 6 months, the elbow is stable and velocities are increasing above previous benchmarks. It'll may eventually require a surgery, but our son decided to wait. Rehab was a better short term choice.
