Orthopedics

Your recovery is our goal

Strains and sprains to the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and connective tissue) are not uncommon. But the damage caused by injury, overuse or disease can create pain and swelling and can limit your mobility or flexibility.

When that happens, you may need specialized care to get your body moving again as it should. To schedule an appointment, call 913-588-1227 or request your appointment online.

The orthopedic specialists at The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City can help you get back on your feet. Many of our surgeons are not only board-certified, but also have received additional advanced fellowship training in their particular area(s) of focus. In addition, our team can draw on the vast resources of the entire hospital – specialized imaging studies, advanced anesthesia and the broad spectrum of consulting services – if needed in the diagnosis and treatment of your condition.

Orthopedic services

Bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons are all connected in a way that helps our body move – something most of us take for granted. The lack of movement or its restriction changes everything about how we function in our daily lives.

Sometimes our movements are restricted because of normal wear and tear on our bodies. We sit, stand, walk or run every day, and the excessive movements that accumulate over the years often cause us to require a tune-up. At times, an injury or disorder has damaged one of these vital functions, and we need therapy or surgery to heal properly.
