We are proud to partner with organizations across the Arlington community and beyond to provide meaningful programs and events that enhance the culture, education and health of individuals and families in our area and across the globe. We always strive to help our patients get back to enjoying life. We take this one step further by supporting organizations working across a spectrum of philanthropic causes to enhance the communities where our patients live and work, and in international locations where we can make the greatest impact.

We’re proud to focus our giving efforts in several areas:

Inpatient Unit

Recovery in Comfort and Care

Some procedures require our guests to spend a couple of days with us to recover, rehabilitate and be monitored by staff and physicians. We’ve made every effort to maximize patient comfort and speed the recovery process with services that have more in common with an upscale hotel than a hospital.

Inpatient Guest Suites

Our comfortable, oversized guest rooms are private, and designed to help guests sleep better with fewer interruptions. Every room has a private bathroom and is equipped with a flat screen TV, phone and wireless internet access. Recognizing the importance of family support in a patient’s recovery, Baylor Scott & White Arlington welcomes a family member or significant other to spend the night with comfortable accommodations in the patient’s room.

Dining

The Bistro offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and is located on the first floor, accessible through the main lobby.

  • Breakfast is available from 7:00-10:00 AM, Monday through Friday
  • Lunch is available from 11:00 AM-2:30 PM, Monday through Friday
  • Dinner is available to guests and visitors nightly. Orders may be made at the 2nd floor nurses’ station

Visitation

Visiting hours are from 8:00 AM-8:00 PM. We currently have open visitation during those hours; however, based on the guest’s condition, the staff may decide to limit visitation. Children are allowed to visit but must be under constant supervision by an adult. They are not allowed to run in the hallways or engage in other disturbing activities. One visitor is allowed to stay overnight with a guest in his or her assigned room.

Hourly Rounding

Pain Management

The care and comfort of our guests is our number one priority. If you experience pain during your hospital stay, we want to know.

Physical Therapy

The goal of any physical therapy program is to help patients recover as many of their post-operative abilities as possible. At Baylor Scott & White Arlington we want our guests to recover as completely and as fast as possible so they can return to an active lifestyle. Depending on the nature of the surgical procedure, a physical therapist will work with guests as early as hours after surgery.

In some cases, extra time for recovery may be needed. We can help refer you to several home health companies and rehabilitation centers that can help post-surgery.

Hip Pain

Many elderly people live in fear of that one fateful accident causing a broken hip. That fear is understandable when you consider the statistics on how hip fractures impact those 65 years of age and older, especially women, leading to hospitalization, hip surgery, and extended rehabilitation. A broken hip can be the difference between independent living and long-term immobility.

Injuries treated:

  • Hip socket fractures
  • Thigh (femur shaft) fractures
  • Hamstring muscle injury
  • Dislocated hip
  • Hip strain
  • Thigh muscle strain
  • Pelvic fractures

Disorders treated:

  • Hip dysplasia
  • Burning thigh pain (meralgia paresthetica)
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Bursitis of the hip
  • Arthritic hip (inflammatory or osteoarthritis)
  • Osteoporosis

To accurately diagnose and develop a treatment plan for your hip condition, seek out physicians with specific experience and training in orthopedic medicine. Schedule an appointment with a hip specialist or orthopedic hip surgeon by calling 855.41.ORTHO.

Imaging and Radiology

In orthopedics, access to advanced diagnostic imaging is absolutely essential to diagnosing and treatment. We even use mobile imaging equipment in the operating room. We will use the most appropriate advanced diagnostic imaging tools to help you heal, including:

  • CT (Computed Tomography)
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) 
  • Digital Fluoroscopy and X-ray 
  • Arthrograms 
  • Myelograms 

Joint Replacement

Baylor Scott & White Orthopedic and Spine Hospital – Arlington is proud to announce that we have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for our Hip and Knee Replacement Programs. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

Joint replacement can restore people to active, functional and fulfilling lives. After rehabilitation, most patients are able to return to the activities they enjoyed before their joints became so painful. The orthopedic surgeons on the medical staff use advanced joint replacement techniques, materials and prostheses, and have a long track record of good results. A total joint replacement can provide many years of improved functioning.

Am I a Good Candidate for Joint Replacement?

  1. Have you had pain lasting more than a year?
    2. Does your pain wake you up at night?
    3. Do you have trouble with activities of daily living, such as going to the grocery store, working around the house or doing activities with your spouse or grandchildren?
    4. Is your pain unresponsive to arthritis medication such as Advil (ibuprofen) or Aleve (naproxen)?

If you answered “yes” to these four questions and a weight-bearing X-ray of the joint shows bone touching bone, then you may be a candidate for joint replacement. Talk to your physician to find out more.

Knee Pain

Pain Management

About Spinal Pain


Most patients have chronic spinal pain caused by injury or irritation of one of the primary components of the spine – the bones, joints between the bones, discs and nerves. While chronic spinal pain may be disabling and prevent you from living life to the fullest, it is not a life-threatening condition and can often be treated successfully.

Diagnosing Spinal Pain 

  • Patient history
  • Physical examination
  • X-rays
  • MRI scans
  • Diagnostic injections

Treating Spinal Pain

  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery
  • Pain management
  • Therapeutic injections

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can sideline your ability to do even the simplest activities such as brushing your hair or getting dressed. To best diagnose and treat shoulder problems, look to an orthopedic surgeon with specialized training in treating this type of musculoskeletal condition.

Common shoulder disorders treated:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Loose shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Biceps tendonitis
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Fractures (scapula, clavicle, humerus)
  • Separated shoulder

Treatment options:

  • Physical therapy
  • Flexibility training
  • Pain management medications
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Resurfacing
  • Reconstructing
  • Replacing the shoulder joint

For shoulder pain due to injury or degenerative disease, call 855.41.ORTHO to make an appointment with an orthopedic specialist. If you suffer a severe shoulder injury, visit the emergency department where orthopedic experts are on call 24/7.

Sports Medicine

Once an injury has occurred, the Baylor Scott & White Arlington team offers the latest treatment options. Many conditions can be managed with simple treatment plans, medication, and physical therapy; however, some injuries may require surgery. Our primary goal is to get you back on your feet and back in the game.

Common Sports-related Injuries We Can Help You With

  • All knee ligament injuries – ACL/MCL/PCL
  • Broken bones/fractures
  • Bruises
  • Dislocations
  • Muscle swelling/injuries
  • Pulled muscles
  • Tendon sprains, strains and tears
  • Rotator cuff sprains, strains and tears
  • Hand injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Foot and ankle injuries
  • Running injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Shin/calf injuries
  • Spine injuries

When Should I See A Sports Medicine Doctor?

  • If you suspect you have a fracture or ligament injury
  • If you have an injury that requires crutches or a sling
  • If you have pain or dysfunction, especially lasting more than 10 days

Athletes ask more of their bodies than the average person. So an injury comes with higher stakes. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can help athletes return to full function as soon as possible. On the other hand, continuing to train through an untreated injury can cause further problems.

Evaluation by an orthopedist experienced in sports medicine can identify injuries that won’t simply get better with time. For example, is your knee just strained, or is the pain caused by a torn meniscus? Did you sprain your ankle, or do you have a hairline fracture?

After a sports injury, it may take an X-ray, MRI or other imaging study to determine if the injury is only a strain or sprain, or if it is something more serious, such as a fracture or torn ligament or meniscus that could lead to future problems if it is not addressed.
