Welcome to Millsap Valley Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. We strive to provide the best patient experience possible by offering personalized care and taking the time to get to know each patient individually.
Dr. Rose opened his practice in the summer of 2001. Before settling in the area he had an interest in the historical events of the region. Mineral Wells was first settled in 1877 by Judge James Alvis Lynch and his wife, Armanda. They set up camp in the Millsap Valley nestled in the Palo Pinto hills. After drilling wells in the area, the water was noted to have medicinal benefits. It was said that crazy well waters could cure many illnesses, including mental illness, so the name “Crazy Well” seemed fitting. This was the first mineral water well in the county and is the site of a historical marker.
The term orthopaedics was coined in 1741 by a man named Nicholas Andry. The term is derived from the Greek words orthos (straight) and paedia (children), because the profession originally specialized in treating children with deformities. Today, orthopedics has become the standardized spelling in the United States, while organizations such as the AAOS as well as the majority of university and residency programs use Andry’s original spelling.
Dr. Rose specializes in traditional open surgeries as well as minimally invasive techniques. Our philosophy is to provide the least invasive solution with quality care to minimize recovery time and maximize stability and range of motion. At Millsap Valley Orthopaedics, we strive to serve you with compassion and empathy. We take the time to get to know our patients and their specific needs, allowing us to provide you with a comprehensive diagnosis and personalized treatment plan.
In addition, we seek to provide our patients with a convenient experience throughout the treatment process. We have locations in Weatherford and Mineral Wells to meet the orthopedic needs of the surrounding communities. At both offices, we offer in suite X-ray and in suite casting to shorten the length and number of trips you will make during treatment.
