David Nathan Shau, M.D.

Orthopedic Surgery

Dr. David Shau was born in Fort Worth, Texas, graduated high school in Flower Mound, Texas and attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he studied biomedical engineering. He then ventured out-of-state to work at leading academic orthopedic surgery centers, including Vanderbilt University, Emory University and University of California, San Francisco, before being recruited to return home to practice at the premier DFW joint replacement group, the Texas Hip and Knee Center (THK).

He has quickly built his practice through connecting with his community, committing to quality service and delivering excellent patient care. Dr. Shau utilizes a variety of techniques and approaches for hip and knee care, including direct anterior hip replacement, and offers technology-assisted surgeries, such as Mako Technology for partial and total joint replacements. He also specializes in revision joint surgeries and enjoys complex, challenging cases.

Because of his dedication, his partners at THK promoted him to Fellowship Co-Director early in his practice. He also serves as a Physician Development Coach and is an Assistant Professor at the Burnett School of Medicine at TCU, where he enjoys his roles as a teacher, mentor and coach.
