Frosty first established his practice in Austin in 1986 with two partners as Texas Orthopedics, which grew into a very large group. Over the past 30 years Frosty has performed approximately 6,000 total joints (hips, knees, ankles, and shoulders) and 9,000 arthroscopies, including those associated with sports medicine and reconstructions. His first 17 years in practice were spent attending to major traumas around Austin. Being born in Austin, Frosty’s roots are here; having first attended Eanes Elementary in Westlake, when it was a two-room schoolhouse; then Austin High; and then the University of Texas at Austin on a baseball scholarship, culminating in the 1975 National Championship title. After completing a residency in orthopedics in El Paso, and moving back to Austin, Frosty wanted to give back to his community. He is fluent in Spanish, as are his wife and all four sons. Frosty’s special interests are: rodeo, hunting, playing guitar and harmonica, scuba diving, skiing, ranching, and grandkids.
