OrthoTexas would like to introduce the McKinney community to Dr. Sarang N. Desai. He has been named as a "Rising Star" by Texas Monthly Magazine – an honor bestowed to only 2.5 percent of physicians in Texas. Rising Stars are an elite subset of Super Doctors, an already distinguished listing of top doctors, all of whom are featured in the July 2015 issue of Texas Monthly (see Dr. Desai’s listing here).

Super Doctors is a listing of outstanding physicians from more than 40 medical specialties who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. In selecting physicians for Super Doctors, a rigorous multi-step process is employed and includes nominations, independent research, and a blue ribbon panel review.

“It is truly an honor to be named a Super Doctors Rising Star,” says Dr. Desai. “This honor is very humbling and I can only hope it is a reflection of my unyielding goal to deliver the absolute best care to my patients, to improve the quality of their lives and to return them to their desired level of activity.”

Desai is a board-certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in the nonoperative and operative treatment of all foot and ankle injuries and disorders. He is an OrthoTexas partner, who has recently begun accepting patients out of their new location at McKinney Medical Village at 7300 Eldorado Pkwy. in McKinney; Desai also practices out of their Plano and Frisco locations.

Dr. Desai graduated from the University of Texas where he was an All-American athlete and went to medical school at the University of North Texas Health Science Center. He completed his orthopaedic surgery residency in Chicago, and an AO fellowship in foot and ankle surgery at the Michigan International Foot and Ankle Center – only one of two in the country. Desai is trained in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery including sports injuries, minimally invasive techniques, fractures, arthritis and reconstructive surgery.

Given his athletic background he has a particular interest in foot and ankle sports injuries and believes in a rapid, safe return to athletic activities. He is the founder and medical director of the Baylor Plano Foot and Ankle Program. This program was created to provide excellence in foot and ankle care to the north Texas community.
