Welcome From Azalea’s President

Michael E. Russell, II M.D.


Azalea Orthopedics has been privileged to serve East Texas for more than 20 years. We are rapidly growing and expanding our coverage and care options to better serve East Texas and the surrounding areas. Our commitment to providing each patient with the highest standard of care is, and will always be, the cornerstone of our care philosophy.

Azalea is composed of nationally recognized surgeons and physicians, who are sub-specialized to benefit our patients. Our group is dedicated to continuously improving and providing cutting-edge technology, forged with conventional wisdom and practical, proven methods to improve the lives of our patients.

Life is hard on all of our bodies; if you are experiencing bone, joint, or nerve issues we can provide answers. Our team believes in a conservative, non-surgical approach, when appropriate. If surgery is necessary, your surgeon will present every option, along with all of the risks associated with the procedure. When informed, you and your care provider can formulate a winning strategy to produce optimal results.

We appreciate the opportunity
to serve you and your family. Thank you for choosing
Azalea Orthopedics.

Michael E. Russell, II M.D.

President 2017- Present
