Born and raised in Mobile, Dr. Zarzour is a fellowship-trained hip and knee replacement surgeon and president of Gulf Orthopaedics.

His goals are to increase his patient’s activity level while reducing hip & knee pain. He applies the latest literature-based techniques with respect to minimally invasive surgical approaches, peri-operative anesthesia, outpatient joint replacement, and partial knee replacement while continuing to live by the lessons learned from his father, Dr. Robert Zarzour, who taught him to focus on treating each patient like family.

Outside of orthopaedics, Dr. Zarzour enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. He is co-founder of the Fuse Project, a local non-profit, dedicated to increasing opportunities for children across the Alabama Gulf Coast.
