Orthopedic Surgeon in Overland Park & Lee’s Summit
Dr. Matt Daggett, the founding member of Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, is a fellowship trained and board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and shoulder care.
Dr. Daggett was born and raised in Kansas City, MO. After graduating from University of Missouri-Columbia, Dr. Daggett received his medical degree from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and MBA in Healthcare Leadership from Rockhurst University. He completed his orthopedic residency in Kansas City. Following residency, Dr. Daggett obtained a sports medicine fellowship at the American Sports Medicine Institute with Dr. Lemak in Birmingham, AL and a shoulder fellowship with Dr. Gilles Walch and Dr. Lionel Neyton in Lyon, France.
Dr. Daggett is an active researcher in his orthopedic field and an expert in injury prevention, knee ligament injuries,
sports medicine and shoulder rotator cuff repair and treatment. He is the only American member of the International SANTI research group on sports medicine injuries and team doctor for Avila University. He is an associate clinical professor of KCU. He also serves on the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee of the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA).
With over 30 published articles as well as global visits from surgeons who shadow and collaborate with Dr. Daggett, Dr. Daggett has established himself as a trusted surgeon early in his career. Dr. Daggett has always had a love for medicine but originally intended to be an engineer. His love of sports medicine and engineering eventually combined to build his passion for orthopedics. The engineer in him has driven his outcome-focused research, and the sports fan his passion for seeing patients return to active and healthy lives.
Dr. Matt Daggett is known for taking the time to listen to his patients, understand their fears and concerns and then pursuing the best possible outcomes. When Dr. Daggett isn’t putting our patients on the road back to the lifestyle they love, he’s even busier at home with the four young children he and his wife Laura are raising in Leawood, Kansas.
