Marc Roux, MD

I have been in practice as an orthopaedic surgeon since August 2005. I decided to return to my hometown of Waxahachie following training in order to give back to a community that I dearly enjoy and love. I am raising my family of 5 in this community and have enjoyed my leadership roles in Ellis County. I take pride in serving the student athletes of Waxahachie Independent School District as team physician. I have many long term goals professionally to achieve in Ellis County centered upon delivering excellent care to patients with orthopaedic ailments and preventing the need to travel to larger cities to achieve desired results. At our local facilities in Waxahachie, we are able to treat many orthopaedic injuries and chronic orthopaedic illnesses with statistics showing top performance in the Baylor Health Care System with the added personalization and ease of follow up.

My philosophy on taking care of patients with orthopaedic conditions stems from personal experience as well as from my professional education during training at a highly regarded facility in Scott and White Memorial Hospital. Each patient deserves my undivided personal attention and deserves to be seen by the physician on each scheduled visit. I believe in personalized, comprehensive care centered on up to date technology and evidence based practices. I have surrounded myself with employees that will care for you and continue with my philosophy of care. We only use proven orthopaedic implants and vendors for those implants in order to provide you with predicted outcomes based on my expertise in using those products. Our outcomes are unmatched with low complications rates. We have confidence in putting our results against those in larger cities, and we have the added benefit of more personalized care delivery.

We pride ourselves in customer service and treating each patient with utmost respect. We strive to return our patients to their previous level of activity whether it be weekend warrior, collegiate athlete, or at home gardener. We will continue to improve and strive to reach lofty goals in our performance. We look forward to seeing you in our beautiful facility soon.

Josh McSpadden, DO

Josh McSpadden, DO

Born in Dallas and raised in Sunnyvale, Texas, I was built with small town values and big city experience. I received a biomedical science degree at Texas A&M University and earned my DO degree from Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. I completed a 5 year residency at a level 1 trauma center in Toledo, Ohio where I received a well rounded training in all areas of orthopedic surgery. I used my elective months to pursue training under some of the country’s best in their fields, including joint reconstruction with Dr. Kirby Hitt and orthopaedic trauma with Dr. Alan Jones.

I have a broad scope of practice including joint reconstruction, fracture care, arthroscopic treatment of sports injuries, hand and foot surgery, and I have been trained in minimally invasive anterior hip replacement as well as robotic assisted knee and hip reconstruction.

When you walk into my office, I see a unique individual and a soul, not just a knee or a shoulder! I believe in treating the patient as a whole and teaming with you and your family to collectively come up with the best treatment plan. I am very excited to serve a small but growing community and look forward to offering “big city” care with small town pride.

In my free time I stay physically active through running and weight lifting, enjoy quality time with my loving wife and three children, and dabble in ice cream making.
