Southwest Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics

Getting You Back In The Game

Southwest Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics (SWSMO) was founded in 2003 by Jon M. Ellis, M.D. The practice was launched with the goal of providing advanced treatment of sports related injuries to all levels of athletes in the Central Texas area. After 12 years, Dr. Ellis has not wavered in his mission to bring the highest level of care to his patients. He began surrounding himself with physicians of the same caliber in 2005 when Dr. David Haynes, a board certified sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon, brought his practice to Waco. Dr. Chris Miars and Dr. Corbett Boone, Primary Care Sports Medicine specialists, allow SWSMO to offer comprehensive sports medicine care along with orthopedic surgery. This includes services such as concussion management, pulmonary function testing and musculoskeletal ultrasound that provide improved in-office diagnostic capabilities. In December of 2009, SWSMO became the Team Physicians for Baylor Athletics, assuming medical coverage to all aspects of Baylor University Athletics. Since partnering with Baylor Athletics, Southwest Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics has added key members to their group to include: Hand, Wrist & Elbow Specialist, Dr. Scott Hecox; Foot & Ankle specialist, Dr. Paul Bednarz; General Orthopaedic specialist, Dr. Keith Ellison; and Bradley Gilliam, Specializing in Sports Medicine and arthroscopic treatments of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee. These professionals allow SWSMO to bring the highest level of care to the injured athlete and active adult. When that time comes and your lifestyle slows because of arthritis, Dr. Juan J. Rodrigo and Dr. E. Garrison Benton, Jr., can help you at the Arthritis Clinic, specializing in the treatment of arthritis and focusing on total joint reconstruction. SWSMO is passionate about providing the highest level of care available for the injured athlete and active adult through the many specialties that they provide. Southwest Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics gets you back in the game.
