Direct Anterior Approach

The anterior approach is an approach to the front of the hip joint as opposed to a side or back approach.  Rehabilitation may be accelerated and hospital time decreased because the hip is replaced without detachment of muscle from the pelvis or femur.

  • Elbow Surgery

“The purpose of this letter is to convey to you how much you mean to three of us in the Brierly family. First of all had I not met you I would be in terrible shape with my arm, probably unable to do anything. When I went to the Midwest office in 2000 and met Dr. Davis I was told nothing could be done and I would be better off just living with the arm as is. I went out to the desk and asked if there was anyone else that did surgery for the group. They said that there was this nice southern gentleman who was coming the next week and I could have an appointment with him. Well, you made no promises on movement capabilities, but you told me you could guarantee no pain. Other than the pain of my 9 months of therapy I have no pain and I think that my arm is about 93% normal in what I am capable of doing. I have to hold the down on the amount of pressure I can pull and push at the fitness center but I am able to increase that all the time. I may make 100% efficiency. I told you that you are a miracle worker and I still believe that.

Nobody down here would operate on Deana's knees. You were willing to do it for both knees and she has a new lease on life. She was heading for a wheel chair had you not helped her.

Laura would definitely be in a wheel chair right now had you not taken the chance on operating on a large person. In March Dr. Finn will put in her new knee and she wants to get a three-wheeled bike and start exercising and get her weight off.

It isn't just the big things you did for us, but also the little things like taking an interest in our family and us. You never seemed to be too busy that you couldn't visit with us for a little while when we came to see you. We consider you a special friend that we will remember for the rest of our lives.

You saved my right elbow after I had broken it. I was told down here that nothing could be done and you took care of it.

The medicine you recommended, diclofenca potassium, is making me feel like a younger man. I can work out longer and harder with no side effects. I can get up and go to the bathroom at night without using a cane. I may not have to have an MRI and shot because of your knowledge of medicines.

So for all of that and more we, me, Deana and Laura, say a huge thank you. We will miss you, but you have to do what you need to do for you and your family. I wish you the greatest life in Texas. Who knows if it ever comes up that one of us needs hip surgery we may be calling Helen to make arrangements for you to do the surgery (depending on how our insurance would respond). Speaking of Helen, she is the greatest too. She has also been there for us and helped us through many a problem. Please pass along our thanks to her too.

I don't care for any of the orthopedic doctors around here and if we have need we will have to call Helen and get her honest recommendation for a doctor.

Again, thank you and all the best to you and your family.”


  • Trepezio Metacarpal Joint Replacements-RH/LH

“I would definitely agree that you are the most kind, caring, & compassionate Doctor that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing . I'm so thankful for the two surgical procedures that you have performed on my Thumb Joints & helping me get back to a less painful lifestyle. We are so lucky to have you here in Odessa & the quality of medical ability you bring to us. Thanks again Dr. Ingram.”

Rebecca M.

  • Carpal Tunnel

“I had seen several doctors before coming to see Dr. Ingram. With someone so young to have carpal tunnel in not one but BOTH hands I am amazed at the precision of my diagnosis and the correction of it as soon as 3 weeks after my first visit. Without his knowledge I probably wouldnt have my hands in full working order today! Thanks Dr. Ingram!”

Bill C

  • Mom's knee replacement

“My Mom of 89 years of age was almost to the point of being unable to live alone until a friend told us to go see you. You fixed her knee and she can keep up with me walking at the mall (I am 63). She is now 91 and still lives alone and does what she wants. You are a "neat" Doc and we will always be thankful for you. May God bless each and every surgery you do. ”
