Roger H. Emerson, M.D., comes from a family of physicians. His father was an obstetrician and his grandfather a general surgeon. “It was very natural for me to pursue medicine,” he says.
“What made me want to pursue orthopedics was seeing the excellent results my father experienced when he had total hip surgery. While I was in college, my father’s hip became increasingly uncomfortable, and he was unable to ski with the family or play ball with his kids. After his surgery, he was like a new man.”
Emerson completed his undergraduate education at Dartmouth College, his medical education at Yale Medical School, and orthopedic studies at Harvard. He was the chief resident at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a fellow in reconstructive surgery at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston.
He is certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons, and is a member of both the Knee Society and Hip Society, highly-selective organizations made up of the most prestigious joint surgeons in the United States. He has served as the director of the Joint Institute at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano, and is active in teaching and research.
Emerson’s focus is on primary hip and knee surgery, especially less-invasive techniques. He offers hip surgery using the anterior supine approach, which helps patients recover faster with less pain. He also offers partial knee implants and total knee surgery using custom instrument guides designed exclusively for each patient.
