About This Institute
UT Health Austin’s Musculoskeletal Institute diagnoses, treats, and manages musculoskeletal disorders, helping reduce pain, improve function, and increase range of motion in adult patients (18 years and older). We are here to listen and work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs.
In 2020, the Musculoskeletal Institute was recognized with a Silver Award in the Musculoskeletal Management Category by the Validation Institute’s Health Value Awards. The awards are designed to “showcase healthcare organizations and programs that demonstrate measurably better and more transparent health outcomes, costs, and safety than conventional care.”
At UT Health Austin, we take a multidisciplinary approach to your care. This means you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines caring for you in one place, often during the same appointment, to avoid having to schedule multiple appointments with providers at locations all over the city. The Musculoskeletal Institute Care Team includes orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, physical therapists, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians, and more, who work together to help you get back to the things in your life that matter most to you.
We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research and treatment techniques, allowing us to customize a treatment plan specific to you. Treatment may include nonsurgical interventions, such as lifestyle modifications, physical therapy, or medication and injections, or surgery may be the best course of action to help improve your pain and function. Imaging and lab testing are also available on-site if needed.
At UT Health Austin, we focus on you, the whole patient, making sure that you have the support you need throughout your care. To explore FAQs regarding your upcoming appointment, please click here.
