Celebrating a Decade of Success

When Baylor Scott & White Scoliosis Center (BSW) first opened its doors, the idea was to deliver advanced, skilled care for spinal deformity in a boutique setting, keeping the patient at the center of everything we do.

BSW was built around the patient – not his or her condition. By taking this patient-centered approach, over the past 10 years, we have become one of the largest regional deformity centers in the United States. More than 3,000 patients and their families have relied on us for hope and healing. Many of our patients were told by other specialists that nothing could be done for their condition. Then they came to BSW, and their lives were forever changed.

Nearly every day we are contacted by prospective patients, as well as spine surgeons from across the country, in need of help managing complex spine issues. As our caseloads grow, so does our experience in treating increasingly difficult spine problems, which only serves to enhance the level of care and service we are able to provide. It also enables us to create evidence-based care protocols and further both the science and practice of spine medicine. Our expertise and reputation for excellence have helped establish BSC as a leading center for health economics and spinal deformity research.

The tremendous strides we have made would not have been possible without our team approach to care. From imaging studies to examination by other specialists to procedure scheduling and follow-up, we strive to provide our patients a level of service and convenience that few other centers in the nation can match. One of the ways we do this is through expert care coordination.

BSW patients have the same care coordinator throughout the diagnosis and treatment process. These skilled members of our care team help reduce confusion, delays and duplication, as well as schedule all the tests and consultations needed prior to major surgery in a matter of days, not weeks. Our approach is all about creating the best experience possible for patients and families, many of whom have traveled great distances to receive care.

BSW Scoliosis Center has accomplished much over the past decade for both our patients and the field of spine medicine. We are grateful for the continued support of those we serve and for all our colleagues, as we continue to advance care for the patients of tomorrow.
