Tennis elbow, bone spurs and rotator cuff issues are some common upper extremity conditions impacting active and sedentary lives. Conservative treatment, like sports therapy, may not alleviate elbow or shoulder pain long-term. When that happens, Baylor Scott & White Health not only offers a full array of surgical procedures to correct conditions of the upper extremities, but also features procedures that are not widely available such as reverse total shoulder replacement, revision shoulder surgery and revision shoulder replacement often through current, minimally invasive techniques.
If you’re bothered by foot pain, an ankle sprain or other condition, see your doctor to help prevent your symptoms from progressing. If you need a physician, orthopedic foot and ankle specialists near you on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White medical centers can help get your feet on the treatment path that’s right for you. Get ready to move better.
Your fingers, hands, wrists and elbows are integral in daily living. With them you play music or sports, text your friends, work or hold hands with your loved ones. While many upper extremity conditions can be treated through medication or rest, some may require surgery by an orthopedic specialist.
Hip preservation is an orthopedic treatment that preserves as much of your natural bone as possible while providing hip pain relief. Whether hip pain is from a congenital condition or early osteoarthritis overuse, orthopedic surgeons trained in hip preservation treatment work to delay or prevent hip replacement surgery.
Whether you or a loved one experience knee pain, hip pain or pain in a shoulder or ankle joint, with advances in technology and surgical procedures, you now have even more options for joint surgery. In addition to traditional approaches, Baylor Scott & White Health also offers several specialized procedures that help reduce joint replacement recovery time.
Joint wellness experts are able to treat your orthopedic joint pain from your shoulders to your ankles conservatively or, if necessary, by performing partial or total joint replacement surgery traditionally, through the anterior hip approach, one day post-operative discharges and even using robotic surgery*. We also offer total reverse shoulder replacement.
Sometimes knee replacement complications and other joint complications arise that require examination from a physician experienced in complex joints. If you’ve had a joint replaced but are experiencing knee pain, hip pain or instability, learn more about our complex joint revision services or search our orthopedic oncologists to make an appointment.
*Robotic joint replacement surgery is available at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple and Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Waxahachie.
Offered at our Dallas, Plano and Temple hospitals, these complex services offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disease, including bone and soft tissue cancer, infected joints and joint revision surgery.
Whether you’re an athlete or just living a full life, quick movement, body mechanics, overuse, poor posture or taking a misstep can do an "end-run" on your joints, tendons and ligaments, such as an ACL tear or ACL injury, and sometimes your brain by sustaining a concussion.
Comprehensive sports medicine care is our game plan for athletes, the active and those with sports-like injuries.
Falls and motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of trauma injury. Trauma ratings at BSWH range from level 1, which handles all cases of trauma to level 4 hospitals which provide advanced trauma life support before transferring patients to a higher level trauma facility.
Whether your child experiences a sports injury from a game or a sports-like injury from roughhousing or has a congenital concern, we can help. Call 1.844.BSW.DOCS or search our online directory for a pediatric orthopedist near you.

A dislocation occurs when extreme force is put on a ligament, allowing the ends of two connected bones to separate.
All dislocations require immediate medical attention because fractures can also occur with dislocations. Some dislocations may go back into place by themselves. However, for those dislocations that do not go back into place, you will need treatment to place the joint back into its proper position so it will heal.
Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of dislocation and personal preferences. Options may include:
