“I’m committed to being a partner with the patient, and being able to work together toward a common goal, like better function or pain relief,” said James Huston, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon and lead physician for OrthoKansas’ services in Emporia. “I enjoy working in a field like orthopedics where you can make an immediate and profound impact on a person’s quality of life.” 

Each Monday, Dr. Huston will be the primary orthopedic physician in the clinic. He will see patients for general office visits and to evaluate the need for surgery. Other OrthoKansas physicians will also be available on Fridays, rotating though the Emporia location to provide a range of orthopedic specialties including, but not limited to, foot, ankle, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder care.

“Newman Regional Health Medical Partners is excited to begin our venture with OrthoKansas,” said Lynn Doeden, Clinic Administrator for Newman Regional Health Medical Partners.  “Patients will be able to be seen by an OrthoKansas orthopedic surgeon right here in Emporia at our very own orthopedics & sports medicine clinic and have surgery and/or follow-up care locally, if that is what is required.  With state-of-the-art imaging services, including digital x-ray in the clinic, CT and MRI at Newman Regional Health, and physical/occupational therapies on-site, everything is kept local for our patients.”
