    Dr. Andrew Parker is a DFW native. After graduating from high school in Fort Worth he attended Texas A&M University in College Station, where he studied Genetics and English — graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree. He went on to attend medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and remained there to complete his 5-year orthopedic residency training. During his residency training, Dr. Parker received recognition for earning the highest cumulative exam scores in his class and was awarded the Bronze Hammer for most outstanding resident. He also received the Tullos Award for excellence in research as a resident.

    Following his orthopedic residency, Dr. Parker pursued additional training in sports medicine at the American Sports Medicine Institute in Birmingham, Alabama, under the direction of James R. Andrews, M.D., and the world-renowned Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center. During his fellowship, he served as a team physician for the University of Alabama and the University of West Alabama, as well as the Birmingham Barons (the White Sox minor league AA affiliate). Under the expert tutelage of Drs. James Andrews, Lyle Cain, Jeffrey Dugas and Benton Emblom, Dr. Parker’s training focused on the surgical management of complex sports injuries in elite-level athletes and overhead throwers — with a portion of the fellowship dedicated to intensive training in hip arthroscopy. He has also cared for athletes in the NFL, MLB, NBA and PGA, as well as WWE, U.S. Olympic and USA Cheer teams. He has been the team physician for multiple high schools in both Alabama and Texas, and has cared for members of the Alabama Ballet and Houston Ballet. After completing his fellowship, he returned to the Metroplex to be close to his family and to serve the community in which he grew up.

    Dr. Parker’s practice includes operative and non-operative treatment of all types of orthopedic conditions, from sports related injuries to arthritic and degenerative conditions. He specializes in less invasive arthroscopic surgical techniques for the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder and elbow, as well as partial and total joint replacement of the knee and shoulder. He performs arthroscopic shoulder surgery for labral and rotator cuff tears, as well as open treatment of complex shoulder injuries and degenerative conditions. He received extensive training in the treatment of elbow conditions, and is proficient in both UCL reconstruction (Tommy John surgery) and UCL repair with internal brace, a new technique that can cut recovery time in half.

    Dr. Parker also performs patellar stabilization procedures and arthroscopic knee surgery, including meniscal repair, ACL and multi-ligamentous reconstruction of the knee, cartilage preservation and restoration. His goal is to preserve or repair the native tissue whenever possible, and to return his patients to their pre-injury level of activity.

    Dr. Parker is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine and the Arthroscopy Association of North America. When he’s not working, he enjoys cooking, playing guitar and piano, working out, and spending time being active and outside with his family (two kids and two dogs).
