Don Buford, MD

Texas Orthobiologics

Don Buford, MD founded Texas Orthobiologics as a clinic where patients can get an unbiased orthopedic diagnosis and a complete discussion of their nonsurgical and surgical treatment options including orthobiologics or orthopedic surgery. The most common conditions treated are arthritis pain, back pain, tendon injuries, and sports injuries. Our goal is to maximize our patients' quality of life and minimize their disability from any musculoskeletal condition in the safest, least invasive, most successful and most cost effective way. For many patients, we can successfully get them back in play with therapy, medications or office based orthobiologic injections. In some cases, we use PRP and bone marrow concentrate/cellular injections 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. Dr. Buford has been in Dallas for over 20 years and has been voted multiple times by Dallas area physicians as one of the best orthopedic surgeons. He is Board Certified by the American Board Of Orthopedic Surgery. For over 20 years he has been a sought after lecturer nationally and internationally on orthopedic surgery and regenerative medicine subjects. He was the 2021 President of the Interventional Orthobiologics Foundation (IOF) and continues to serve on the Board. He is one of the IOF members who works with the Biologic Association. He is on the Board of The Arthroscopy Association Of North America (AANA) for a 3 year term from 2023 to 2026. He has also served on the Membership and Education Committees of AANA.
