Dr. Kay is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon with a focus on total hip replacement, total knee replacement, and partial knee replacement. He specializes in direct anterior hip replacement, as well as minimally invasive, robotic-assisted, complex, and revision hip and knee replacement procedures. After earning his medical degree at Jefferson College, he completed an orthopedic surgery residency at Houston Methodist Hospital, and an Adult Reconstruction (Total Joint) Fellowship at the Rothman Orthopaedic Institute.

Dr. Kay first chose to focus his career on hip and knee replacements during his residency, when he found these cases fascinating, and learned that executing all the steps for a successful joint replacement provided a sense of accomplishment he still experiences after every case. Even more important to his decision to specialize in arthroplasty was the gratitude he saw from patients, after seeing so many lives changed by a successful hip or knee replacement.

When he isn’t helping patients get back to the activities they love, Dr. Kay enjoys snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, baseball, soccer, running, and playing the piano and the guitar.
