Over 45 million children and adolescents are involved in organized athletic in the United States. According to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, almost 3.5 million under the age of fourteen are treated for sports-related injuries each year, making athletics one of the leading health risks for children. Dr. Dustin Loveland is combatting that problem by applying his expertise in pediatric and adolescent sports medicine to community outreach. He not only treats sports-injured youth but works with coaches, trainers, and parents to help prevent those injuries. While he knew he wanted to be a doctor at a young age, Dr. Loveland discovered the subspecialty of pediatric and adolescent sports medicine during his residency. He spent extensive time training with some of the leaders in the field at both Miami Children's Hospital and Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. "I saw that I could be part of a team that effectively keeps kids safe while they enjoy the sports they love," he says. "There is no better feeling than helping ensure a healthy future for young athletes." A native of Dallas, Dr. Loveland himself was raised as a youth athlete. He grew up through the ranks of local little league baseball. He eventually focused on varsity football and track while attending Rowlett High School. Dr. Loveland earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch. He completed his orthopedic surgical residency at the University of Miami, where he served as chief resident. He was then selected by world renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews to train as a sports medicine fellow. Dr. Loveland has served as an associate team physician for the University of Miami and Auburn University football teams. He is a member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Medical Association and the Texas Medical Association. "Children's Health is a leading institution with a well-known reputation of being on the forefront of pediatric and adolescent medicine. I could not be more honored to become part of the staff." With a heart for area youth, he and his wife co-founded Reaching Our Community's Kids (ROCK) in Rowlett, TX. ROCK is a non-profit after-school and summer mentoring program designed to teach life skills and provide participants with the training and encouragement necessary to succeed in school. Outside of his practice, Dr. Loveland enjoys traveling, fishing, and spending time with his wife and their daughter.

Dr. Loveland was awesome and went above and beyond to accommodate us. My daughter's injury ended up being a much more tedious surgery than we originally thought, so we were extremely thankful that she was in her hands... he did an amazing job. Can't recommend him enough- your kiddo will be in great hands!

Dr. Loveland was excellent in the care of my child with a broken arm. His bedside manner was excellent- was able to use terms that my 5 year old understood and then to me about the specifics of her injury and recovery. I would recommend Dr. Loveland to anyone.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We're happy to hear you were pleased with your experience while visiting Dr. Loveland at Children's Health Andrews Institute.
Not recommended at all. Communication was unclear and confusing. I ended up extremely frustrated and didn't trust anything he said. The only reason I didn't walk out of the office after meeting the dr was my child clearly needed a cast asap. I transferred to another dr to complete treatment. A parent should feel confident in the decisions made by a provider. Not left wondering why a broken bone still has a visible dip and if this will effect them later in life.

My 10 year old daughter broke her arm playing soccer. He was very understanding of her need to get back into the game ASAP. He was awesome with my daughter and reassuring to me as a mother.
We appreciate your kind words, Stacey. Thank you for sharing! We're happy to hear you were pleased with your experience while visiting Dr. Loveland at Children's Health Andrews Institute.

I'm not sure why he's at a Children's Medical Center. Not so great with kids. He looked at my sons injury as an afterthought. He acted as if he'd rather be anywhere else than there. Did not explain his injury or treatment very well. Answered our questions with brief/vague answers. Maybe he's a good doctor but based on his bedside manners would not recommend.
