Dr. Kurt Johnson, MD
Dr. Kurt Johnson, a native Texan, earned his undergraduate degree magna cum laude from Texas A&M University. He then completed his M.D. and orthopedic residency at Baylor College of Medicine. Here, he trained in the largest medical center in the world, evaluating and managing patients with some of the most complex and progressed musculoskeletal diseases. Additionally, he became especially skilled at fracture fixation while working at the exceptionally busy county hospital, a Level 1 Trauma Center.
Following residency, Dr. Johnson elected to subspecialize in the treatment of lower extremity arthritis, a condition that all too commonly afflicts us as we age. For this, he spent a year in Boston, attending the prestigious Otto E. Aufranc Fellowship in Adult Reconstructive Surgery at New England Baptist Hospital. Here, he trained using conventional techniques as well as the latest cutting edge technology, such as augmented reality and robotic surgery, to perform hip and knee replacements. Dr. Johnson is proficient in virtually all types of procedures in order to achieve the best possible outcome for his patients. These procedures include the muscle sparing anterior hip replacement surgery as well as minimally invasive posterior hip replacement, robot-assisted joint replacement, arthroscopic knee surgery, partial knee replacement, and revision joint replacement. He is also a strong advocate for outpatient joint replacement (same day surgery) when appropriate.
When not working, Dr. Johnson loves to maintain an active lifestyle with his wife and husky. He enjoys golfing, hiking, and weight lifting–but one of his greatest joys is getting his patients back to doing what they love.
