Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

JPS Health Network’s Orthopaedics can help to free you from pain and restore your flexibility. Our staff of health care professionals will create and implement a treatment plan to manage pain and restore the ability to move freely.

The JPS Sports Medicine team specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries related to athletics and physical activities. Our board certified physicians provide care to athletes of all ages throughout Tarrant County. They serve as team physicians for many of the area high schools located in Fort Worth and Arlington.

Care isn't limited to school-aged athletes. Adults and seniors and those who consider themselves "weekend warriors" are also seen and treated for previous injuries and those recently suffered.


All Patients

For new patients with third party coverage, you or your referring physician may contact the JPS Health Center, specialty service area or physician to schedule an appointment. The scheduler in that area will verify that the service requested is available at JPS and make an appointment for you. The scheduler will verify insurance coverage and that the service requested is covered by insurance. Any required authorizations will be requested. If your insurance does not cover the requested services or if your insurer does not authorize the service, you will be contacted and given the opportunity to pay for the service at the time of the appointment.

For new patients without third party coverage, please contact any JPS location and request an appointment. At the time the appointment is made, you will be advised of the fees for the visit you request. You will also be given the opportunity to make an appointment for financial screening if you would like assistance in paying applicable fees. The financial screening associates will assist you in determining any programs for which you may be eligible. Please bring requested information with you to your financial screening appointment. If eligible, you may choose to apply for JPS Connection, a program that provides fixed fees for services provided by JPS. View additional information on the JPS Connection program.

JPS Health Network and its affiliated facilities are contracted with the these insurance companies and provider networks to provide services to covered members at in-network benefit levels. We recommend that you contact your insurance company to confirm participation of JPS Health Network in your specific health plan.


Athlete Patients

Athletic patients should go through their trainer to be seen at the Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center. For school physicals, patients need to bring their completed and approved UIL form. If you play in a club or league sports or do not have access to a trainer, call Michele Kirk, MD, for an appointment at 817-852-8700.
