Accepting New Patients?


​​Professional Back​​​ground

After earning his medical degree from the University of Minnesota in 1978, David Edelstein, M.D., completed his internship and residency at Northwestern University in Chicago in 1983. He completed a fellowship at the University of Southern California in adult reconstructive Surgery in 1984.

Professional Assoc​​iations

Dr. Edelstein is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, Texas Orthopedic Society, Houston Orthopedic Society and Harris County Medical Association.

Hobbies and Inte​​rests

When not caring for patients, Dr. Edelstein enjoys road cycling, skiing, scuba diving, sailing and camping.

Fun Fa​cts

Dr. Edelstein’s favorite dessert is hot apple pie and vanilla ice cream. The best advice he's ever received is, "It’s tough to soar with the eagles in the morning if you’re out hooting with the owls at night." The most interesting place he’s visited is Israel. His guilty​ pleasure is hot glazed donuts from Shipley’s. The one technological device he can’t live without? His smartphone.​​​

​I believe in providing information to my patients so they can understand their condition and partner with me in the decision making process.  In this way we can achieve the best outcome for their orthopedic condition.
