Success Stories

I have known Dr. Michael Blum since he repaired a Tibia/Fibula fracture over 20 years ago. When I got bucked off a horse this past September and broke both of my arms, Dr. Blum was my first phone call. He quickly put things into motion, contacting his colleagues, Dr. Michael Smith and Dr.Ekkehard Bonatz, to get me into their surgical schedules. For my procedure, Dr. Smith and Dr. Bonatz tag-teamed with Dr. Smith performing surgery on my right arm and Dr. Bonatz on my left. The surgery would have taken twice as long (it took a little over 4 hours) if Southlake Orthopaedics had not had two of the best hand surgeons. Working in concert they repaired two very complex fractures requiring two plates and nine screws in my right arm and one plate and five screws in my left arm.

Our Areas of Expertise

Foot & Ankle

Comprised of 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments, your feet and ankles take a beating everyday carrying your body weight and absorbing the shock of every step you take. From fractures to arthritis to bunions and hammer toes, the physicians at Southlake have the expertise to treat your foot and ankle injuries.

Hand & Elbow

At Southlake Orthopaedics, we have physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of your hands, wrists and forearms. They are experts in hand surgery, which is a sub-specialty of orthopaedics requiring additional training dealing with complexities of hand anatomy and micro-vascular conditions.


The hip joint is a major weight-bearing joint, supporting a stress load of up to five times your body weight when you are walking. It takes a good deal of force to seriously damage the hip. Unfortunately, hip injuries still happen. The physicians at Southlake Orthopaedics are experts in treating hip injuries, as well as performing total hip replacements.


Our knee is the largest joint in our body. It’s also the most vulnerable because it bears our weight while providing flexible movement. Whether you have need ACL reconstruction surgery or have a less severe injury like a sprain or runner’s knee, the physicians at Southlake Orthopaedics can help you get back in the game.


The shoulder has a wider and more varied range of motion than any other joint in your body, but this flexibility also makes the shoulder one of the most unstable joints in the body. The physicians at Southlake Orthopaedics are trained to treat everything from fractures and sprains to dislocations and tears.


The spine is made of 33 individual bones, as well as ligaments and muscles that connect the bones together and keep them aligned. Keeping your spine healthy is vital if you want to live life without back pain. From neck pain and pinched nerves to herniated discs, the physicians at Southlake Orthopaedics will help you get back to living.
