Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Kevin L. Fain, MD, FAAOS, enjoys providing his patients with life-enhancing treatments, such as joint replacement, arthroscopic surgery, sports medicine procedures and reconstruction for orthopedic trauma cases. “It’s very gratifying to see somebody who came into your office in a wheelchair come walking back in three months later after surgery.”

After being in private practice for 17 years, Dr. Fain became a UT Health East Texas physician, which gave him more time to do what he enjoys most. “It has freed me up to concentrate solely on the practice of medicine.”
