Biography

Dr. Zayde Radwan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at The University of Texas Health Science Center McGovern Medical School at Houston (UTHealth).

Dr. Radwan is board eligible by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and specializes in hip and knee reconstructive surgery concentrating on primary (first time) and revision (redo) total hip and total knee replacements as well as partial knee replacements and hip resurfacing. He performs total hip replacements through both anterior (front) and posterior (back) approaches. His practice encompasses the treatment of all forms of arthritis, continued pain following a joint replacement, developmental disorders of all ages that require joint replacement, fractures with or without the involvement of a joint replacement, as well as the treatment of complex infections involving joint replacements. When clinically applicable he is experienced in using technology (robotics and navigation) to aid with his operations. Dr. Radwan’s practice is centered around the patient with the goal of providing excellent care and obtaining the best outcomes.

Dr. Radwan joins UT Orthopedics from the University of Colorado, where he completed a fellowship in Hip and Knee Reconstructive Surgery. However, he is well known to UT Orthopedics family as he attended medical school and completed his residency at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School at Houston. He graduated summa cum lade from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas with undergraduate degrees in Cell Biology and Psychology.

He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. He has an interest in surgical education and research. During both residency and fellowship, he has participated in several clinical research projects with a focus on trauma, venous thromboembolisms (blood clots), and outcomes following revision joint replacements.

A native of Houston, Dr. Radwan grew up in the southeastern suburb of Deer Park, Texas.  Growing up he spent much of his time on the football field and caring to his own injuries. It was his experiences as a patient that inspired him to seek a career in orthopedics and caring for others. He is married to his college sweetheart Laura, who also works in the medical field as a NICU nurse. In addition to taking care of his patients, Dr. Radwan enjoys the outdoors, spending time with family, sports, and taking his dog Greyson on walks.

Research Information

Ongoing Research Activities

  1. Currently involved with a study evaluating the ability of thrombelastography, in combination with orthopedic injury profiles, to predict risk for developing venous thromboembolism (VTE) on admission in trauma patients. Specifically, evaluating the impact of above vs. below knee long bone injuries, weight-bearing status, and soft-tissue component to supplement the predictive ability of maximal amplitude (of thrombelastography).
  2. Evaluating cause and outcomes of revision Total Knee Arthroplasty at the University of Colorado.
