Board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon Patrick Simon, MD, is proud to provide high-quality care as part of the exceptional team at Northeast Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. The practice has locations in Live Oak and San Antonio, Texas.
After earning his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Dr. Simon completed his residency with the University of Cincinnati Department of Orthopedic Surgery. He continues to maintain active memberships with the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the American Medical Association.
Dr. Simons' interest in orthopedic surgery began during medical school when he was able to rotate through different areas of medicine. He was on an emergency medicine rotation when he observed the orthopedic surgeons take care of trauma patients with serious injuries. From that moment, he decided to pursue a career in orthopaedics.
At Northeast Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, Dr. Simon enjoys the ability to improve the lives of patients with injuries or chronic pain. A patient with painful arthritis in the knee can often return to a normal, pain-free life after knee replacement surgery. Seeing happy patients come back over the years is very satisfying for Dr. Simon.
Dr. Simon finds joy in seeing patients and discussing their problems. He takes a slightly more conservative approach to patient care and is happy to be able to provide surgical and nonsurgical options for his patients. Working together with the patient, he goes through all the options before determining the best approach for each individual person. His goal is to help his patients achieve pain-free activities as much as possible. Dr. Simon identifies the things that are holding them back from accomplishing their lifestyle goals and finds either surgical or nonsurgical treatment options.
Dr. Simon's team includes James E. Brown, PA-C, Valerie Andrew, Medical Assistant, and Letty Rohana, Medical Assistant.
