Established in 1921, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is a world-renowned leader in pediatric orthopedics, offering leading-edge treatments and services that treat the whole child — mind, body, and spirit.
The team of specialists is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive care to treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions, including hip disorders, clubfoot and other pediatric foot conditions, hand differences, fractures, sports injuries, limb length discrepancies, and scoliosis.
To best serve its patients, Scottish Rite Hospital recently opened a second location, Scottish Rite for Children Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center in Frisco, in addition to the original Dallas facility. In both locations, specialists provide accessible, top-quality care for all families, regardless of their ability to pay.

After 96 years in its original Dallas location, Scottish Rite Hospital recently opened a new facility in Frisco. Located at the corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway, the new campus specializes in pediatric orthopedics, fracture care, and sports medicine.
The five-story, 345,000-square-foot facility is located on a 40-acre campus and features a physical therapy gym and a state-of-the-art Movement Science Lab for sport-specific training and testing. There's also an adjacent U-11 soccer field (used for group therapy sessions and coaching clinics), a half-mile walking and running trail, and a playground with adaptive play equipment.
No condition too big or too small
As a leading pediatric orthopedic center, Scottish Rite Hospital has treated more than 300,000 children since its inception nearly a century ago. The orthopedic specialists are as skilled at treating common fractures and sprains as they are at identifying and mending some of the world’s most complex pediatric conditions. They understand that children and teenagers aren't just small adults — their growing bones require extremely careful attention to avoid potential complications.
Both the Frisco and Dallas locations offer care and treatment for scoliosis, hand disorders, clubfoot and foot disorders, rheumatology, and other orthopedic conditions. In addition, the new Frisco location houses the Fracture Clinic, which specializes in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of fractures, as well as the Sports Medicine Center, which focuses on treating concussions, stress fractures, and knee, hip, shoulder, and elbow injuries in young and growing athletes.
At Scottish Rite Hospital, the staff — world-renowned surgeons, physicians, and researchers — are all experts in healing muscles, joints, and bones. The specialists in their six Centers for Excellence work as a close-knit team to provide prompt, effective treatments and solutions for children and their families. In addition to providing the utmost in quality patient care, they're known for treating a wide range of pediatric orthopedic conditions, pioneering leading-edge technologies, discovering genetic breakthroughs, and solving some of the most complex orthopedic cases in the world.
