Texas Orthobiologics

Their ultimate goal is to maximize their patients' quality of life and minimize their disability from any musculoskeletal condition. Dr. Buford strives to help his patients recover to their desired state of health without surgical procedure.

Dr. Buford and his trained staffed typically perform regenerative orthopedic therapies in the office in procedures that takes less than 1 hour. In some cases, PRP and bone marrow derived stem cell injections are used to assist, accelerate or augment the healing response in conjunction with a surgical procedure. Orthopedic surgery is reserved for those patients with the most serious injuries.

Background and Education

Dr. Buford has been in practice in Dallas for 20+ years and has been voted multiple times by Dallas area physicians as one of the best orthopedic surgeons. He has also been honored with selection to the Texas "Super Doctors" list multiple times, a list that only 5% of doctors in Texas are selected for.

Dr. Buford attended Stanford University for the first half of his college career. While at Stanford, he was a member of the baseball team and had a double major in economics and Human Biology.

He then transferred to USC where he continued his athletic and academic pursuits. In 1988 he received the Woody Hayes NCAA Division I Academic All-American Award for being the single most outstanding NCAA Division I male student-athlete. After graduation from USC, he signed his first professional baseball contract with the Baltimore Orioles and also enrolled at UCLA Medical School.

Since 2008, Dr. Buford has been training clinicians on MSK ultrasound and now orthobiologics as the Director of the MSK Ultrasound and Orthobiologics Course.

"Awesome Staff!!! Dr Buford and I share the opportunity of playing professional baseball, I’m still active in sports and coaching youth baseball at the age of 54. Dr. Buford and staff worked with me at every step to getting me healthy so I can continue perusing my ambitions. If you have knee or shoulder issues this is the Dr for you.. Troy"

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
