With a reputation for compassionate, personalized care and highly-skilled expertise, he was named by D Magazine as one of the top 100 Dallas physicians.

 Conformis technology allows for reduced occurrence of knee joint instability, commonly found in off-the-shelf implants. “We want to have a knee that matches your knee – it just makes common sense.”

Dr. Buch has performed thousands of primary and revision joint replacement surgeries using only the most advanced implants available. In addition, he is actively engaged in bone and joint investigative studies, as well as researching and writing numerous reports that have been widely published in medical and orthopaedic journals. He is affiliated with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Dallas County Medical Society, Musculoskeletal Tumor Society, American College of Surgeons and the Texas Medical Association.
