Taking Preventive Wellness Down to the Next Level

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, the saying goes. A new facility designed by Page at Children’s Health Plano in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the Children’s Health Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine delivers on this mentality by bringing world-class orthopaedic care in state-of-the-art facilities to pediatric patients. With the highest concentration of competitive student athletes in the country, this location is addressing a demonstrated need and will serve as a model for future facilities nationwide.

Building on the successful platform of the original Andrews Institute in Florida, renowned surgeon Dr. James R. Andrews collaborated with Children’s Health Plano to develop the new institute after observing that his practice was full every Monday morning with pediatric patients who had suffered sports injuries over the weekend. Some childhood orthopaedic injuries manifest themselves immediately, while others like post-traumatic arthritis surface many years later. Dr. Andrews and Children’s Health Plano recognized the need to address both acute and chronic consequences of childhood injury by rehabbing young athletes as well as providing them with the training and resources to prevent future injury altogether.
