Southwest Sports Medicine & Orthopedics

Getting You Back in the Game

Baylor Scott & White Southwest Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics was founded in 2003 by Jon M. Ellis, M.D with the goal of providing advanced treatment of sports related injuries to all levels of athletes in the Central Texas area. After 17 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. Ellis added primary care sports medicine specialists, to allow SWSMO to offer comprehensive sports medicine care along with orthopedic surgery — Dr. Chris Miars, Dr. Corbett Boone, Dr. Jaeson Courseault and Dr. Laura Irvin. This includes services such as concussion management, pulmonary function testing and musculoskeletal ultrasound that provide improved in-office diagnostic capabilities. In December 2009, SWSMO became the team physicians for Baylor University Athletics. SWSMO also added key members to their group to include: hand, wrist and elbow specialist, Dr. Scott Hecox; foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Paul Bednarz; total joint specialist, Dr. David Ferguson; surgical spine specialist, Dr. Freeland Ackley and Dr. 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 joint pain, Dr. David Ferguson can help at the Southwest Sports Medicine Total Joint Clinic, specializing in total joint reconstruction. In March, Baylor Scott & White opened the doors of the Ted & Sue Getterman Sports & Orthopedic Center. This facility incorporates the highest level orthopedic care with the highest level of imaging, therapy and surgery under one roof. Southwest Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics gets you back in the game.
