UT Southwestern Medical Center ranks among the top medical centers in the world. Each year, we provide inpatient care to nearly 91,000 people and oversee more than 2 million outpatient visits. We attract patients from North Texas, across the country, and around the world. Here are just a few of the reasons they choose us.
Our physicians are focused on bringing to our patients the latest, proven advances in medicine − many of which were pioneered by UT Southwestern doctors and researchers. Six members of our staff have won Nobel Prizes, and we have more members of the National Academy of Sciences among our team than all other academic medical centers in Texas combined.
Research is the cornerstone upon which world-class patient care is built. Our discoveries in cancer, neuroscience, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and many other fields of medical specialization, are providing new ways to prevent or treat disease.
Patients get the advantage of multidisciplinary thinking across a comprehensive range of specialties and subspecialties – more than 60 in all. Our collaborative, team approach allows us to diagnose and treat even the most complex of illnesses and conditions. And we do it in a compassionate, patient-focused way. We’re the nation’s only academic medical center to win two patient satisfaction awards from a national firm that specializes in health care performance.
We utilize the latest medical technology to offer superior treatment for virtually every kind of illness. UT Southwestern was the first facility in North America to install Vero, an advanced system that delivers radiation beams to tumors in a concentrated, precise fashion, sparing healthy tissue. We’re also experts in the use of robotic surgery technology, which offers surgeons greater precision and patients quicker recoveries.
