The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of North Texas Health Science Center and John Peter Smith Hospital is a multidisciplinary group of orthopaedic and podiatric surgeons who are involved in patient care, education and research. Our team of surgeons and staff collaborate to provide comprehensive care of all musculoskeletal problems in a caring environment while utilizing modern surgical techniques and technologies. Medical student training has recently become an important mission for our faculty.
Our surgeons also instruct and teach orthopaedic and podiatric residents in our fully accredited graduate medical education programs at John Peter Smith Hospital. The individual departmental faculty members actively participate in research and have published in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals. Within these rich clinical and academic practices, our orthopaedic and podiatric surgeons and staff provide compassionate, evidence-based care to achieve optimal outcomes and patient satisfaction.
