About the Doctor

Visit Website »

Tom Parr spent 20 years serving in the United States Military. He graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, and completed Ranger School, earning his Ranger Tab. After serving as a Troop Commander for an Armored Cavalry Troop in Germany during the Soviet Union's invasion of Czechoslovakia and as a Mechanized Infantry Company Commander in Vietnam, he decided he wanted to pursue a career that would allow him to help others.


In 1975, Dr. Parr graduated from Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, and moved to San Antonio's Brooke Army Medical Center for his internship and residency. By the 1980s, Dr. Parr was the Assistant Chief of Orthopedics at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington. There, not only did he treat soldiers and their families, but he was responsible for teaching the next generation of Army Orthopedic Surgeons in the Residency Program.


Dr. Parr retired from the Army Medical Corps as a Colonel in 1987, and moved home to Texas. He's been here in Sugar Land ever since, using the training and experience from his military days to help friends and neighbors get back to full strength.


He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery both as a General Orthopedist and as a sub-specialist in Orthopedic Sports Medicine. Dr. Parr is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the American College of Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, the Texas Orthopaedic Association, the Society of Military Orthopedic Surgeons, the Texas Medical Association, and the Harris County Medical Society.


Dr. Parr takes great professional pride in remaining on the "cutting edge" of orthopedic surgery. He was among the very first Army orthopedic surgeons to start doing arthroscopic surgery, and he continues to provide that same kind of professional leadership with today's orthopedic surgery advancements, being among the first in the Nation to do MAKOplasty (robotic, computer assisted resurfacing of the knee).


Being committed to the continuing support and defense of our Nation, Dr. Parr enjoys working with today's youth who have an interest in serving in any branch of the military or who have an interest in attending any of our Nation's military academies. His years in the Army Medical Corps enable him to help candidates work their way through the medical requirements for eligibility.


Currently, Dr. Parr serves as the Chief of Staff for Houston Orthopedic & Spine Hospital in Bellaire. Dr. Parr has been a Member of the Board of Directors for the West Point Society of Greater Houston since 1989, and is a Volunteer Medical Consultant for the Shriners' Hospital for Children in Houston. He also enjoys being a Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center of Houston.
