Anthony Echo, MD


Anthony Echo MD, FACS, is a board-certified surgeon through the American Board of Plastic Surgery who is currently accepting new patients at his Willowbrook office in Houston, Texas. Dr. Echo is an assistant professor in the division of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Houston Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. He also serves as an assistant professor of plastic surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City and a clinical assistant professor of surgery at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

Dr. Echo completed a plastic surgery residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston at the world-renowned Texas Medical Center. While there, he completed rotations a Ben Taub Hospital, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston Methodist Hospital, Texas Children’s Hospital, and the Houston VA hospital. Upon completing his chief year in plastic surgery, Dr. Echo became one of two people accepted into the prestigious Stanford University Microsurgery Fellowship, where he was able to work with some of the world’s experts in microsurgery, breast reconstruction, and peripheral nerve surgery.

As part of his peripheral nerve fellowship, Dr. Echo had the privilege to train under Dr. Susan Mackinnon, one of the pioneers in peripheral nerve surgery at the Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Echo was eventually recruited back to the Houston Methodist Hospital, where he would provide breast reconstruction and peripheral nerve surgery for patients seeking these procedures in Texas.

Dr. Echo is also a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has served as a scientific peer reviewer for several journals, including the Annals of Plastic Surgery, Microsurgery, Hand, and the Journal of Hand Surgery. He also serves on committees for the American Society of Plastic Surgery, American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery, and the Texas Society of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Echo has received grant funding from the Plastic Surgery Foundation, Ethicon, and the Houston Methodist Hospital.

As a recipient of the 2016 Dyer Fellowship award at the Houston Methodist Hospital, Dr. Echo was able to travel to Aspetar Hospital in Doha, Qatar, to work with Dr. Ulrike Muschaweck and Dr. Zarko Vuckovic on sports hernia repairs and core muscle injuries. He is one of the only surgeons in the entire United States who offers the Muschaweck Minimal Tension Repair technique to our athletes.

Driven by his research and education interests, Dr. Echo has authored more than 50 publications in peer-reviewed journals and scientific textbooks. His clinical and research focus is on complex peripheral nerve surgery, nerve pain, Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) for amputation stump pain, sports hernia and a return to play, and microsurgical breast reconstruction with the restoration of sensation.

Dr. Echo is an expert in microsurgery and peripheral nerve surgery. Patients across the country are referred to him for his expertise in microsurgery and peripheral nerve surgery. Other clinical areas of interest include core muscle injuries, surgical treatment of migraine headaches, DIEP flap breast reconstruction, and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Since 2012, Dr. Echo has been treating chronic pain in amputees by addressing stump neuromas. Through a procedure termed targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) or regenerative peripheral nerve interface (RPNI), he has been able to treat phantom limb pain in the limb with excellent success.

Please contact the office to verify your insurance! There are several procedures that we perform that are not commonly performed by most surgeons, so in some cases we can actually get insurance approval for some procedures. For cases which are not covered by your insurance plan, we do offer out of network rates and self-pay rates for our patients; we try to work with all insurance companies when appropriate. Please note that with all surgical bills there are several components. These include the hospital facility, anesthesia, surgeons fees, radiology fees, lab fees, and assistant fees. You may receive bills for any remaining balances on any of the various services performed to get you through the surgical process in a safe and efficient manner. Should you have any bills that you have questions about please contact the number on the statement since each medical biller will have the information to their specific services. We try to give you the most accurate estimate for your services, but in some cases there are additional, less, or different procedure codes necessary once the surgery has commenced.
