In January 2021, Texas Orthopedics, Sports & Rehabilitation Associates launched our new combined orthopedic group practice, OrthoLoneStar. Texas Orthopedics, Sports & Rehabilitation Associates will continue to be the same trusted partner and resource for you, your family, your loved ones, and all of Austin and Central Texas. For 34 years, our care philosophy has always centered on the patient and on ensuring that we can deliver exceptional outcomes and superior experiences for our community. OrthoLoneStar is the next step in delivering on those promises.
Private practice medicine is our way to ensure that healthcare decisions are made by physician and patient in a direct and independent manner. Our belief is that the general practice of medicine is weakened and outcomes are impacted when external forces interfere with the relationship between you and your doctor. We have been able to best serve Austin and Central Texas because we have been leaders in the region. OrthoLoneStar allows us to build on our legacy of independence and partner with like-minded groups to advance care across the entire state of Texas.
Texas Orthopedics is a founding division of OrthoLoneStar, which is important because our combined group is built around quality and around value for the patient. By joining orthopedic practices that share core values like caring and quality, we have opened pathways for increased service, future-focused analytics and research, and greater accessibility. We can provide for seamless transition of care and for peerless levels of expertise in and around Tyler, Houston, Dallas, and Austin. As we find similarly situated and high functioning groups, we will continue to build our presence across Texas.
Texas Orthopedics is proud to be part of OrthoLoneStar, and we are proud to be part of the legacy of Austin and Central Texas. We believe that we are stronger today than we were yesterday, and we believe that your continued belief in us will drive us to be stronger tomorrow, with you. In a practice built on independence and buoyed by your trust, we thank you for allowing us to continue to be stronger together.
