John M. Fackler, M.D., FAAOS, has joined Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital.  Fackler's specialties include arthroscopy of the knee and shoulder, knee replacement, fracture care, in addition to general orthopedics and sports medicine. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

Fackler received his bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Austin, his medical degree from Texas Tech Health Sciences Center and completed his residency at Texas Tech/WBAMC Combined Orthopedic Residency Program in El Paso.

In his practice, Fackler treats a variety of orthopedic issues for patients of all ages. He focuses on athletic injuries and knee ligament ruptures, as well as patients with degenerative arthritis. He customizes care based on the patient’s lifestyle goals and medical needs while exploring all of the non-operative procedures first. 

“Conservative treatment is my initial focus, such as patients with osteoarthritis, conservative treatment can yield success, meaning the symptoms are controlled, he said.. “After trying all the non-operative procedures, joint replacement can, and often is, life changing.”
