2018 – what a year! We are very grateful for our patients, referring providers, athletic trainers, physical therapist partners and community leaders that entrust us with their care or the care of loved ones. We are taking a moment to reflect on the moments and changes that made 2018.
We added 6 new members to our team and actively hiring more staff. 3 members of our team welcomed new babies, so our family grew even larger!
The in-office arthroscope is an innovative MRI alternative that provides instant, accurate answers. Because a video tells a better story than a picture, we are excited to be the first in KC to start adopting this new hand-held arthroscope technology.
Dr. Roberts trained in France
Dr. Roberts pursued advanced hip care training with Dr. Mathieu Thaunat in Lyon, France in January. During his training, he learned new techniques on Hip Arthroscopy. The techniques are quicker, more efficient and overall much safer.
New Overland Park Clinic
We opened a new south clinic in Overland Park, Kansas. This clinic is located in the Medical Office Building of Saint Luke’s South Hospital. It has allowed us to reach more patients and offer more convenient clinic options for existing patients.

Dr. Daggett: KCU Young Alumni Award
Dr. Daggett accepted the KCU Young Alumni Award this fall. The award recognizes a young alumnus who has attained a high level of success early in their career.
I RETURNED for athletes
We launched I RETURNED this year. This road map for athletes provides athletes with goals, structured plans and customized support during their return to play treatment journey. It also provides encouragement, suggestions and experience from other athletes. We will continue to expand this program next year to help our athletes return to play mentally and physically strong.
We treated nearly 2,000 patients this year. We love getting people back on the road to the life they love!
Our practice continues to evolve to answer the question: “What does optimal healthcare look like?” By measuring outcomes and patient satisfaction, we stay focused on improving patient care. We are incredibly excited about the many things that we are working on for 2019, including an expansion of international collaborations, research, patient care initiatives, new Providers and community involvement. It’s going to be a great year!
Happy New Year!
