Orthopedic Services

The orthopedic and sports medicine specialists at Olathe Health are focused on providing the latest surgical and non-surgical treatments, excellent outcomes and high levels of patient satisfaction.

Our goal is to help patients reclaim the quality of life they enjoyed prior to the onset of pain, disease or injury. Our dedicated team of surgeons, physician assistants, certified nurses, athletic trainers, therapists and other caregivers coordinate care to ensure the best possible outcome.

We know that patients recover more quickly when they are well informed and take an active part in their own healing. We want our patients to understand their options, and have provided the following information to help you learn more about your condition and treatment.

Our Orthopedic Services Include:


Knee and Hip Replacements

Joint replacements are recommended when a joint has deteriorated and the joint surfaces need to be replaced with artificial materials. This procedure is commonly performed on hips and knees, and some smaller joints like the ones in shoulders, wrists and hands can also be replaced. Joint replacement surgery is usually considered only after other treatment options have failed to provide adequate relief from pain or disability.

New advances in minimally invasive joint procedures, such as partial knee and partial hip replacements, promise faster recoveries, so you can get back to living life at your own pace.

Joint and Ligament Reconstruction

Ligament reconstruction refers to a type of surgery that is done to help rebuild ligaments that have been damaged. In some cases ligaments will heal without surgery, but in most instances surgery is necessary for future stability of the joint. Ligament reconstruction uses healthy tendon tissue to repair a damaged ligament. Some of the more common ligament reconstruction surgeries involve the knee, such as ACL or PCL reconstruction to repair tendons that support the knee.

Joint Pain Injections

For many types of tendonitis and joint inflammation, an injection of cortisone, a strong anti-inflammatory medicine, can be an effective way to reduce or eliminate joint pain and swelling. This treatment is most often used in joints like the hips, knees and shoulders.

Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder joint replacements are recommended when the joint has deteriorated and the joint surfaces need to be replaced with artificial materials, usually metal and high-density plastic. Shoulder replacement surgery is usually considered only after other treatment options have failed to provide adequate relief from pain or disability.

Rotator Cuff Repairs

When the tendons and muscles of the rotator cuff are overly stretched or damaged, the shoulder may become unstable. If your pain does not improve with nonsurgical methods, or if you are very active and use your arms for overhead work or sports, surgery may be right for you. Depending on the type of repair needed, there are different surgical approaches available, from minimally invasive arthroscopic repair, a partial open repair and the traditional open surgical repair.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease characterized by inflammation of the lining of the joints. It can lead to joint damage causing chronic pain and loss of function and disability. Since rheumatoid arthritis presents itself in many different ways, our experts tailor treatments to the individual patient. Care may range from medications and therapy to joint replacement surgery.
