Dr. Torrance A. Walker, MD - Orthopedic Surgeon - Dallas, TX

“When I was growing up, I lettered in several sports. I also worked with my grandfather, who is a carpenter. We enjoyed straightening out things that were crooked, and I came to appreciate proper structure – whether it’s in the bones of a house or the bones of a human being. Orthopedic surgery was very appealing to me because of its structural nature and its ability to help people overcome painful, often debilitating conditions and injuries – in other words, to straighten them out.

“When I became an orthopaedic specialist, I also made the commitment to research the latest surgical techniques and give my patients the most effective care possible. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to use my training and skill to help people overcome pain and lost function and get on with their lives again.”
