Neck and back pain

Muévete mejor por la espalda y el cuello

We offer a variety of services to relieve neck and back pain through orthopedic doctors who can help with your specific needs, including strengthening exercises, rehabilitation, medication or spine surgery consults with spine doctors.

Elbow and shoulder

Conservative treatment 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.

Pie y tobillo

If you’re bothered by foot or ankle pain, see your doctor to help prevent your symptoms from progressing. If you need a physician, foot and ankle specialists 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.

Hand and wrist

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 treatment

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.

Bienestar articular

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.

Complex joint revision and musculoskeletal tumors

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.

Medicina deportiva

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 care is our game plan for athletes, the active and those with sports-like injuries.

  • Learn about our centers and programs for injury prevention and improved physical performance.
  • If you are experiencing new pain or that from a previous injury, speak to your doctor about sports therapy and find a rehabilitation location convenient for you.
  • Sports teams across DFW, Temple and Waco may choose a Baylor Scott & White SportsCare concierge liaison for help connecting players and family members with primary care doctors or physician specialists. Concierge liaisons are licensed, athletic trainers.
  • Learn more about our sports concussion treatment program.
  • Orthopedic sports medicine surgeons on the medical staff are skilled at treating and repairing all types of orthopedic injuries resulting from participating in sports or even injuries that result from everyday life.

Trauma ortopédico

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.

Pediatric orthopedics

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.
