History of The Carrell Clinic

A leading practice in orthopaedic surgery since the 1920s, the W.B. Carrell Clinic, named after founder William Beall Carrell, MD, focused on general orthopaedics in addition to a special interest in children with orthopaedic deformities. Dr. Carrell became the driving force behind a campaign for building a pediatric orthopaedic hospital in Dallas, and this dream was realized with the founding of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Crippled Children, built adjacent to the Carrell Clinic in 1922. The Carrell Clinic quickly gained a reputation of expertise in the field of orthopaedic surgery in the Dallas area and around the globe.

With locations now in both Dallas and Frisco, the Carrell Clinic continues its tradition of excellence by seeking the most highly trained surgeons with varying specialties to provide patients with world-class, individualized treatment and an improved quality of life.

The Carrell Clinic and its surgeons believe that the latest technology combined with advancements in procedures contribute to the clinical success of our patients.

Each member of the clinical and administrative staff has been selected for their professional skills, and their compassion and care for meeting each patient’s orthopaedic needs.
