SAY HELLO TO

DR. SHAPIRO

As a native Austinite, I started the practice in 1990 with the goal of seeing any child who truly needed pediatric orthopedic care and to provide as good of care as anywhere in the country. 

I love working with kids and am blessed to have three of my own, along with two grandchildren with my wife of 38 years. 

 

Being a parent is the most difficult thing we do but most important and most rewarding."

OFF THE RECORD

FUNNIEST MOMENT

I once had a 3-year-old tell me, after smelling my coffee breath, that I had BAD breath, to mom's total horror. 3-year-olds are always honest!"

 

 

WHAT ARE YOU FAMOUS FOR AT CTPO?

Loud walking and talking & always wearing my boots. 

FAVORITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK

Playing with my grandchildren, traveling and hunting. 

HEARTWARMING MOMENT

I had a patient who inherited a bone disorder and her firstborn child had the same condition. Mom gave me a big hug when she came in with her baby and told me she wouldn't take her anywhere else. 

SUBSPECIALTY FOCUS

My subspecialty interests include pediatric spinal disorders and other complicated congenital abnormalities.
