Steven J. Meyers, M.D.
Dr. Steve Meyers is a sports medicine physician specializing in the non-operative treatment of all sports injuries and musculoskeletal disorders. He manages all general orthopedic diagnoses from neck pain to toe pain and all areas in between. He has a special interest in Regenerative Medicine, using one’s own cells to help stimulate healing of damaged tissue, reduce pain and improve function. He also treats acute and chronic athletic/sports injuries in addition to non-operative fracture care. As a former competitive athlete, he understands the desire to return to sport after injury.
After obtaining his Bachelor’s degree from The University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Meyers received his MD degree from The University of Texas Medical School at Houston. He then completed family practice residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston followed by fellowship training in Primary Care Sports Medicine at U.T. Southwestern in Dallas.
Dr. Meyers also specializes in the use of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound. Ultrasound imaging allows him to visualize soft tissue injuries to tendons, ligaments and muscles and even direct specific treatment to injured areas.

My Practice Philosophy
My approach to patient care is to treat you like family. You see me for every visit as I do not have a physician assistant. First, I take a detailed history of the issue. Then, I perform an extensive examination by assessing joint range of motion, swelling, strength and stability, palpating tender areas and performing special tests. I review your reports of imaging such as Xrays and MRI. Then, I actually SHOW YOU and explain the Xray and MRI images in detail. After reviewing your history, exam and imaging findings, I determine the diagnosis causing your orthopedic issue. Then, we have a complete discussion, including the benefits and risks, of ALL available treatment options; from Do Nothing to Surgery and everything in between. I explain everything in easy-to-understand terms and answer your questions so that you have a thorough understanding of your problem and the treatment options empowering you to choose what treatment is right for you. This may include medication by mouth, physical therapy, bracing or casting, injections, regenerative treatments such as PRP and Stem Cell, etc.
