Meet the Orthopedic Surgeon- Dr. Hayden

Dr. Shawn Hayden

Shawn Hayden MD PhD MBA

Dr. Shawn Hayden believes in providing an extremely high quality, high tech orthopedic experience for all of his patients. His state of the art orthopedic center is well equipped with some of the latest medical equipment. We perform constant upgrades to keep ahead of the curve. In fact, Dr. Hayden became a pioneer in the use of electronic medical records in north Texas. He then focused intently on learning new high-tech orthopedic techniques, such as robotic as well as arthroscopic surgery. These advances can promote quicker recovery periods as well as better outcomes. 

Dr. Hayden, with his conservative yet comprehensive approach to patient care, makes the patient feel comfortable right from the first appointment.  Well organized in his approach towards surgery, Dr. Hayden has handled a number of joint, sports, trauma, and spine surgeries skillfully. His treatment plan is prepared based on the individual’s specific needs and life situation, along with all available options for therapy.

Unlike many other orthopedic surgeons today, Dr. Hayden has not insulated himself from his patients. Other practices have made it increasingly difficult to see their physicians by requiring new patients to see any number of assistants first. On the other hand, Dr. Hayden stands strong in his belief in a close physician-patient relationship from the moment you walk through the door. He provides a personal talk with every patient and performs a thorough clinical examination himself. When you visit Dr. Hayden, rest assured that you will receive a uniquely personalized approach to your orthopedic treatment.
 
Dr. Hayden has trained in numerous orthopedic procedures, from minor injury care to extensive trauma surgery. To learn more about some of his areas of care, please visit the following links:
