Recognized by U.S. News & World Report
UT Southwestern Medical Center earned High Performing recognition for orthopaedics from U.S. News & World Report for 2019-20, placing us among the country's leading hospitals for orthopaedic surgery and care.
The Orthopaedic Surgery team at UT Southwestern Frisco offers innovative surgical and medical options for patients who have injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, and muscles. We apply a multidisciplinary approach to evaluate and treat all types of orthopaedic conditions and injuries. Next-day appointments are often available.
Our team includes physicians, researchers, and clinical service providers who evaluate patients and create a comprehensive treatment program for their specific condition. For most of the situations we treat, surgery is not our initial approach. If surgery is necessary, we use the most advanced techniques available to help patients. Our surgeons are experts in innovation, including minimally invasive techniques – which often help patients recover quickly.
We offer a broad range of care, covering:
- Foot and ankle conditions, including sprains, strains, and trauma; ankle replacement; osteoarthritis; bunionectomy; and Achilles tendon injuries
- General orthopaedic surgery
- Hand and upper extremity impairments, including carpal tunnel syndrome; rheumatoid arthritis; osteoarthritis; degenerative hand, wrist, and elbow conditions; peripheral nerve disorders; and overuse injuries
- Hip and knee replacement and reconstruction
- Microvascular surgery of the hands and feet
- Orthopaedic trauma, fractures, and post-traumatic reconstruction
- Sports medicine, including elbow injury, hip and thigh injury, knee and lower leg injury, and shoulder care and reconstruction
All procedures requiring anesthesia will take place next door at UT Southwestern’s partner site – the new Texas Health Hospital Frisco.
