Parker Sports Medicine and Orthopedics specializes in the surgical and non-surgical care of pain conditions in the orthopedic field. In our facility, we utilize the latest research and technology to deliver the best treatment available for both athletes and everyday folk. Our goal is to help patients restore function and mobility, reduce pain, and ultimately return them back to a life uninhibited by debilitating conditions.
We are very excited to offer our patients Stem Cell Therapy treatments. With Stem Cell Therapy, we harness the body’s innate healing potential to aid in the regeneration and restoration of injured or damaged body tissue. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that utilizes biologics harvested straight from the patient. This means that risk of rejection and infection is extremely rare!
With Stem Cell Therapy, patients no longer have to endure risky surgical procedures or deal with long recovery periods and months of physical therapy. We have helped numerous patients throughout Texas get their lives back with Stem Cell Therapy – will you be next?
If your knee pain just won’t fade, your health care provider may have recommended surgery to reverse the damage. However, there is no reason to resort to that choice before you at least try our non-operative treatments. We have helped many patients throughout North America avoid knee and shoulder surgery & replacement that requires weeks of bed rest and long periods of physical therapy.
Pediatric injuries refer to injuries occurring in children. If you have a child that has suffered an injury that’s causing acute or chronic pain, we would love to help them at our office. It’s important that children seek assistance right away – their bodies are growing at an exponential rate and we advise parents and caretakers to take the preventative approach rather than the “wait-and-see” approach. Set-in injuries may cause larger problems for the child down the road, so it’s better to be proactive in the child’s health care.
Sports injuries are often a combination of cartilage, ligament, tendon, and muscle damage – whether it be a ligament tear or partial tear or a sprain. Don’t let the pain from the injury persist; the longer you wait to receive help, the more damage you may cause to the injured area and the longer it will take for you to get back to the sport you love.
Work-related injuries affect millions of people each year in America. Unfortunately, there are many occupations that place many demands on the body day-in and day-out. If you have experienced a work-related injury, it’s important that you report it immediately. Waiting too long to report a claim may not guarantee you workers’ compensation. However, whether you recently received the injury or are still feeling the effects of one weeks or months later, come visit us at our office, we may have a pain-relief solution for you.
Please note that we only see W/C injures on a case-by-case basis. To schedule an appointment, you have to have already reported the claim and have a claim in place.
Every patient is different. Our doctors make it their top priority to give each and every patient the individual attention they need. Dr. Parker understands your needs and goals, develop a custom treatment plan that works, and thoroughly explain the options available to you.

Dr Parker is an amazing man who genuinely cares about his patients. Thank you Dr. Parker and staff for being so compassionate in my time of need.
Dr. Parker has replaced both of my hips in the last 8 months, the last one back in June. I am already back to riding my motorcycle, hiking, and just about any and everything I want to do. He and his staff have always been prompt, courteous, and helpful in anyway I needed. They have always been wiling to take whatever time necessary to treat me and answer any questions I might have. I highly recommend him, his staff and his clinic.
Had 2 shoulder surgeries prior but nothing like this. They were all very knowledgeable and kind. It has been a few years and still no blowout. I see a lot of comments saying they are rude. I disagree and add they are extremely direct and to the point. Exactly what I look for in a Dr. Great experience and better doctor.
I have been a patient of Dr Parker’s for several surgeries, all very successful. My go to PA who has always taken care of me and my husband has been Carlos Flores. Carlos is top notch in his field, very knowledgeable and caring, highly recommend him. He is very detailed in his explanations to you. The entire office staff is great.
My husband has seen Dr. Parker and Carlos for a couple of injuries. Thankfully they have kept him from having to have surgery...so far! The staff from the check-in girls to the clinical staff to the check-out girls were great. I also referred my father-in-law to Dr. Parker for his shoulder. He ended up being referred out and that resulted in neck surgery. However, we are very grateful to Dr. Parker for doing the work-up and making a personal phone call to get him in quickly with the spine specialist. Great providers and great staff all the way around.
Dr. Parker and his staff are top notch! Several of my family members have been treated by Dr. Parker and his physician assistants and were very pleased. They were back to doing the things they love in no time-without pain!
Carlos really helped me out with my heel pain! He injected both of my heels and with such expertise before I even realized he was injecting them, he was finished. No pain! This was on a Friday afternoon and by the end of the weekend my heels were pain-free! Highly-recommend Carlos, Dr. Parker, and the rest of the staff at Dr. Parker’s office!!
James R. Parker did really great job on my shoulder and knee. No problems and I recommend everyone to go see Parker. Best in town!
Dr. Parker is a great dr and surgeon. He operated on me when I was in great pain. I no longer have pain anymore and can do things I could not do before. He is very prompt and answered all my questions for me when in need. His PA even returned a phone call to me late at night when I was in so much pain. The office staff is also super friendly.
I took 2 of my 5 children to see Dr. Parker’s PA. He was thorough and casted my daughter’s buckle fractured wrist. She was back to Gymnastics in 5 weeks. He also splinted my son’s left ankle. Within a week my son was walking normal again. His PA’s are the most knowledgeable in the State!!!
