Tim Gueramy, MD, well known for founding Austin, Texas-based, medical technology company, DocbookMD,has returned to his first passion—orthopedics.
In February, the surgeon and entrepreneur joined Texas Orthopedics, the largest most comprehensive orthopedic practice in Central Texas.
He returns after a three-year hiatus, temporarily leaving medicine to dedicate himself full time to growing DocbookMD, a mobile/web- based application that allows medical providers to securely share patient information. Prior to DocbookMD, Dr. Gueramy was a practicing orthopedic surgeon in Austin, Texas for eight years.
“I love building relationships with patients, and am excited to return to orthopedics,” said Dr. Gueramy, a second-generation surgeon.
Even during his short recess from practicing medicine, Dr. Gueramy continued to involve himself in the medical community. He was elected as one of the up and coming leaders by the American Academy of Orthopedics Surgeons (AAOS) in 2014 and sits on the AAOS International committee.
“In addition to being a well-respected surgeon, Dr. Gueramy, brings vast technology know-how that will be invaluable as we continue to find new ways to best address our patients’ needs,” said J. Brannan Smoot, MD, orthopedic surgeon and president of Texas Orthopedics.
Dr. Gueramy specializes in foot and ankle care and will be seeing patients at Texas Orthopedics’ Northwest Austin clinic. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact Texas Orthopedics at (877) 966-7846 or visit www.txortho.com.
