Dr. Willits' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Willits "I am an honors graduate of the University of Texas Medical School in Houston and was awarded the Merck Manual Award for my medical school class. I completed my residency in Orthopedic Surgery, at John Peter Smith Hospital. I then went on to fellowship in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery and Spinal Reconstructive Surgery in Columbus, Ohio at The Ohio State University's Nationwide Children's Hospital. I stayed on at Nationwide Children's Hospital as an attending physician teaching residents spinal reconstructive surgery. In 2011, I moved back home to Tulsa, Oklahoma and became Director of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery at a local hospital. During my four years there I became one of the busiest spinal reconstructive surgeons in the country for people with Scoliosis. I have now established the Northeastern Oklahoma Spine Center. Through this organization I will care for spinal conditions in patients of all ages, and will continue care of patients with other deformities throughout the musculoskeletal system."

If you want someone to tell it to you as it is, and is going to be conservative with your treatment , this is the place for to be. Treated me with Injections and it had help tremendously He said surgery is the last resort, it took a couple of rounds of injections to work, but it feel great now...more

I see Dr. WI'll it's for pain management. I have Ehlers Danlos. He has never treated me like I was drug seeking. He was compassionate and made me feel like he was listening. He actually knew about my condition.
