    Dr. David Shau is a Fort Worth native who is fellowship-trained in reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee. He serves as a Fellowship Co-Director at the Texas Hip and Knee Center as well as a Physician Development Coach at the Anne Burnett Marion School of Medicine at Texas Christian University. He was first exposed to orthopedics in high school following his own sports-related injuries but gained further interest through his undergraduate studies in biomedical engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, where he was first introduced to biomechanics, material science, and healthcare technology, among many other related topics.

    He then attended Vanderbilt University for a dual MD/MBA program and was active in orthopedic research and clinical participation, which earned him the Orthopaedic Clerkship Award. Next, he completed his orthopedic surgery training at Emory University and also completed a healthcare management residency. He was selected to serve as an administrative chief resident during his final year of residency and completed a fellowship in hip and knee arthroplasty at the University of California, San Francisco.

    Dr. Shau utilizes a variety of techniques and approaches for hip and knee care and offers technology-assisted surgeries, partial and total joint replacements, as well as same-day surgeries for appropriate candidates. He places a priority on communication, teamwork, and perioperative care for his patients, with the aim of improving quality of life for both patients and their loved ones alike.

    Dr. Shau is one of the physicians of Texas Hip and Knee Center, a part of Texas Health Physicians Group. All Texas Hip and Knee Center physicians are on the medical staff of Texas Health Harris Hospital Southwest. They primarily practice at Texas Health Clearfork, a part of Texas Health Southwest that is a premier destination for joint care®, where they collectively perform more than 3,000 hip and knee replacements annually.
