Dr. Adam O’Brien is a native Texan and orthopaedic surgeon with specialized training in sports medicine.  He grew up in west Texas (Crosbyton) and graduated magna cum laude from Baylor University in Waco with a degree in Health Science Studies and a minor in Medical Humanities.  He attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.  Following medical school, he attended the University of Washington in Seattle where he completed his orthopaedic surgery residency.  There, he was able to train at one of the busiest level I trauma centers in the nation, Harborview Medical Center.


After residency, he obtained specialty training in sports medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, focusing on arthroscopic (minimally invasive) surgery, ligament reconstruction, cartilage restoration and shoulder replacement. He had the opportunity to work with all levels of athletes including the Houston Texans, Houston Rockets, Houston Astros, Houston Dynamo, University of Houston Athletics, and the 2019 Texas high school football 6A division I state champion North Shore Senior High.


Although specialty trained in sports medicine, he also focuses on general orthopaedics including acute or chronic knee, shoulder and hip problems, fracture care, and pediatric injuries. While he has cared for athletes of the highest level, he receives just as much satisfaction caring for the weekend warrior.


When not helping his patients return to an active and healthy lifestyle, Dr. O’Brien enjoys spending time with his wife, two children and Labrador.  They love going to Baylor sporting events and outdoor activities.  He especially enjoys hiking, fly fishing and skiing.
