Dr. Bailie believes that there are several factors which are required in order to achieve his goal of excellence with every patient encounter from initial assessment through final follow up. To achieve this requires: first-rate intensive training to build a comprehensive Orthopedic foundation, intrinsic artistic surgical skills, contribution to the Orthopedic Community through research and education, thorough appraisal and incorporation of new technology, and offering sound advice and support through communication and commitment, allowing patients to make comfortable decisions regarding their own care.

    Dr. Bailie graduated with high honors, earning a degree in Biology and Human Physiology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1986. He graduated Indiana University School of Medicine in the top 1 % of his class in 1990 and was elected to the AOA National Medical Honor Society. After a 5 year intensive residency program at the renowned Northwestern University McGaw Medical Center in Chicago, IL, he chose Baylor Sports Medicine Institute in Houston, TX for his Orthopedic sports medicine fellowship because of the high quality staff, large patient volumes and extensive clinical, research and sports experience. His residency and fellowships allowed him the honor of working with highly skilled, world renowned Orthopedic Surgeons in a variety of sub-specialties. He was also fortunate to help care for athletes from numerous high schools, Division !, II and III NCAA programs, as well as the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, Houston Oilers, Houston Rockets and the Houston Astros.

    Dr. Bailie passed the rigorous ABOS (American Board of Orthopedic Surgery- the board for MDs) on the first attempt in 1998. He subsequently re-certified, receiving dual certification in Orthopedic Surgery and Orthopedic Sports Medicine, in 2010 and again in 2016 (CAQ in Orthopedic Sports Medicine). The ABOS requires recertification of one or both certificates every 8-10 years to maintain Board Certified Status. The process includes completion of a 10 year cycle of data collection, including surgical cases and CME (continuing medical education hours) before an application to sit for the 4 hour exam can be submitted. Up to 40% of applicants fail to pass their initial CAQ Certification.
