Originally from Harlingen, Texas, Dr. Roderick Capelo received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology at The University of Texas at Austin, then attended medical school at UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He completed his Orthopedic Surgery internship and residency at John Peter Smith/Fort Worth Affiliated Hospitals in 2004. During his first 2 years of residency, he was unsure what aspect of orthopedic surgery was right for him. His first rotation outside of John Peter Smith Hospital was in Pediatric Orthopedics at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, and he immediately found his calling. Within his first week on that rotation, Dr. Capelo knew that caring for children was his passion. Upon dedicating himself to treating children, he underwent specialized training in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery. He completed his fellowship training in Pediatric Orthopedics at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.
Dr. Capelo co-founded Pediatric Sports and Spine Associates in 2006. He has lived in the DFW Metroplex for over 20 years. He and his wife, Renee, have 2 daughters and a son. He enjoys spending time with his family, reading and listening to books on personal development, traveling, cooking, jogging, and working out. He and his family have lived in Colleyville since 2013.
Dr. Capelo is Board Certified in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery and is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

She graduated from Sweet Briar College with a double major in Chemistry and Mathematical Physics. She then pursued her Masters in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Rice University. She spent several years in the corporate world before she elected to be a “stay at home” parent. It was during this time that she felt the calling to pursue a career in medicine. She graduated from UT Southwestern University with a Masters in Physician Assistant Studies. During her training, she discovered her favorite patient population…kids! She joined Pediatric Sports and Spine Associates in January 2013 and has thoroughly enjoyed connecting with her patients and their families, whether it be for an injury, aches and pains, or management of scoliosis.
