***PLEASE NOTE*** Dr. Dean specializes in general orthopaedic care but does not see patients for back, hip, or neck. Dr. Stewart Michael Dean, 46, has been practicing orthopaedic surgery for seventeen years at University of Texas at Houston Medical School where he was a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the Medical Honor Society. He then completed a five-year residency in University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio. He is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. His interest in medicine and his desire to use his hands led him to orthopedic surgery. "I've always been active in sports," Dr. Dean says. "I played football in high school and college and was lucky enough not to have any major injury. I enjoy taking care of people who are active and trying to get them back to full activities. Orthopedic surgery allows me to use my knowledge and hands to help patients get better." Dr. Dean has special interests in shoulder and knee surgery. He feels fortunate to have been trained when both open and arthroscopic surgery were used widely. "Today, many procedures are done arthroscopically that we used to do open. It is important to know both techniques in order to choose what is best for each individual case." Dr. Dean tries to treat patients nonoperatively when possible and feels that one of the best aspects of his training program was learning both nonoperative and operative treatments for orthopedic problems. "I enjoy seeing patients of all ages, and see both traumatic injuries and degenerative conditions in my practice." He feels that proper training and conditioning can lessen injuries and prolong a person's active life. He is committed to giving the highest quality of care possible to patients. He regularly attends continuing education seminars
Verified Patient Reviews
While the PA was very nice and Dr. Dean was nice but seemed irritated for some reason, which was interesting since we waited for 90 minutes before even being called back. How would the doctors liked it if patients showed up 90 minutes late? We saw numerous patients go in and out and all the front desk girl said was "your next". Oh really?
Long enough to be able to diagnose the problem and treat it. Good visit.
All the Staff was very helpful and very nice. Dr. Dean got straight to the point and was very professional and polite!
A bit longer wating time (about 40 min) but the doctor is great. Experienced, attentive and explains everything clear
Dr Dean was thorough and recommendation was beneficial!
I went in with a problem with my knee, after going over the x-rays together we decided to treat the problem with a hydrocortizone shot. It seems to have worked, I am very pleased with Dr Dean and would recommend him highly.
Dr. Dean is great. I came in for consultation on my shoulder that I dislocated a few days previous. I had x-rays taken and then got to sit and confer with Dr. Dean regarding my shoulder. He is very upfront about everything and extremely detailed in explaining everything from the cause, injury, expected rehabilitation, to other possible rehabilitations. With the office being packed, which I assume why the wait may be a little longer than desirable, Dr. Dean still made sure to answer any questions and explain everything until I fully comprehended it. That is probably what I am most grateful for in my visit. Thank you Dr. Dean.
My visit to Dr. Dean was quick, easy and hassle free.
