William Z. Morris, M.D., Joins Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children's Surgical Team

(DALLAS – December 2, 2019) – William Z. Morris, M.D., has joined the pediatric orthopedic surgical staff of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Morris completed his fellowship at Scottish Rite Hospital in 2019. He will see general pediatric orthopedic surgery patients with a focus on spine and hip, primarily at the Dallas facility. 

“We were very excited to have Dr. Morris as one of our recently-graduated fellows,” says hospital Chief of Staff Daniel J. Sucato, M.D., M.S. “We are even more excited that we were able to recruit him to stay on as one of the medical staff as he is a very talented physician, surgeon, researcher and a rising superstar in our field.

Before completing Scottish Rite Hospital’s Dorothy & Bryant Edwards Fellowship in Orthopedics and Scoliosis in 2019, Morris attended medical school at UT Southwestern Medical Center, where he earned his doctor of medicine. He completed his orthopedic surgical residency at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio and recently completed additional subspecialty training at Boston Children’s Hospital, with a focus on child and young adult hip preservation. 

"It is truly a privilege to join the staff and become a part of an extraordinary institution,” says Morris. “Scottish Rite Hospital has been a national leader in pediatric orthopedics for decades and I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to the world-class patient care, innovative research and premier fellow/resident education that makes it a one-of-a-kind hospital."

“Dr. Morris’s expertise will ensure our patients continue to receive the highest outstanding care,” says hospital President/CEO Robert L. Walker. “We are extremely pleased to have him join our staff.” 

Morris is eager to become involved in both the medical and local Dallas community. He is a candidate member of the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America (POSNA), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Orthopedic Section and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery (AAOS).
