Dr. Robert Tyler Ellis is pleased to join the team at Oxford Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Dr. Ellis is a fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon specialized in traumatic and degenerative disorders of the hip and knee. His practice focuses primarily on both hip and knee replacement as well as revision hip and knee replacement. He takes immense pride in listening to his patients’ needs to construct individualized treatments that can improve quality of life, alleviate debilitating joint pain and ultimately adding back function to his patients’ lives. This includes a wide array of non-surgical modalities, as well as total and partial knee replacements, total hip replacements and revisions of previously performed hip and knee replacements that are not functioning as well as they should. Outside of his focus on the treatment of arthritis, Dr. Ellis’s practice also includes surgical and nonsurgical treatment of upper and lower extremity fractures and dislocations, musculoskeletal infections, angular deformities and limb length discrepancy, fracture non-unions, and limb preservation.
Dr. Ellis graduated from The University of Mississippi in 2012. From the moment he arrived in Oxford, and every day since, it has always felt like home. The amazing community of Oxford had such a positive impact on him and his wife Callie, moving back to Oxford has been a top priority throughout his medical training. Dr. Ellis is very excited to now be able to give back and serve the North MS and Oxford communities that have meant so much to his life and his training. The opportunity to serve high school athletics teams on the sidelines and then replace their grandparents worn out joints is the epitome of what serving this community means to him.
Dr. Ellis received his medical degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center School of Medicine in Memphis, TN. He later went on to complete orthopaedic surgery residency at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. While at Mizzou, his passion for total joint arthroplasty was fully realized. The patient outcomes and the quality of life improvement are what solidified his career focus on sub-specializing in joint replacement. While at the University of Missouri, Dr. Ellis had the opportunity to complete many research projects and publish several articles in the sub-specialties’ most prestigious journal.
After residency, Dr. Ellis completed a comprehensive fellowship in Total Joint Arthroplasty at Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center in Jackson, MS. During his fellowship training Dr. Ellis underwent expanded and intensive training in primary hip and knee reconstruction, revision hip and knee reconstruction. Along with treating periprosthetic trauma and prosthetic joint infection, he has undergone rigorous training in cutting edge robotic technology which he uses for total hip, total knee and partial knee replacements.
