Orthopedics is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and correction of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
Coryell Memorial Orthopedics offers convenient, expert care in orthopedics and sports medicine close to home. Our orthopedic surgeon, Aaron Humphreys M.D. , works with people of all ages and abilities to develop individualized and comprehensive treatment programs – from injury prevention and evaluation to orthopedic surgery and post-injury rehabilitation. Surgeries he often preforms include hip and knee replacement, fracture care, tendon and ligament repair/reconstruction, wound care and nerve releases. He uses arthroscopy and other minimally invasive techniques, including arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.

Joyce Pruitt- Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Arthritis no longer slows down Pruitt after total knee replacement surgery at Coryell Memorial Hospital
The day after her total knee replacement surgery at Coryell Memorial, Joyce Pruitt, felt like a new woman.
"For years, I battled knee problems," Pruitt says. “I had been putting off having my knee replaced, but I finally couldn’t live with the pain anymore. I had been doing steroid and the rooster comb injections, but they just weren’t giving me any relief.”
Pruitt, a local business owner, and grandmother who loves to travel suffered from osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease in her knee.
