Dr. Adam Goodyear is a native of Kansas who grew up in Auburn, a small town southwest of Topeka. Although he has lived in Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado, he considers Kansas home and came back to care for its wonderful people.

His areas of interest are hip and knee replacement and revision, as well as non-operative management of arthritic hip and knee conditions.

“For the most part, people that have arthritis that need a replacement will typically get great relief with one of these surgeries,” he said. “There have been a lot of knee and hip replacements put in throughout the years and a lot of them that will need to be revised. I like the opportunity to offer that service to patients as well.”

After earning his medical degree at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston, Dr. Goodyear completed a residency at the University of Kansas Hospital in Orthopedic surgery and a fellowship in adult reconstruction at the University of Colorado Hospital and Denver Health.

Why should patients choose OrthoKansas?

“The patient experience is what we like to go back to. We have a good team here, not just the physicians but our physician assistants, physical therapists, medical assistants, nurses - everybody is on board with helping each patient individually,” he said. “We want to give you the broadest orthopedic experience you can have and be able to offer every service orthopedically that there is to offer. We want to be a regional orthopedic center and we do everything we do very well.”

Philosophy Of Care

I don’t want to be a physician that tells you “this is what we’re doing.” I would prefer to give you the options and let you decide what you want to do. I’ll help you make that decision and give you the pros and cons but in the end, it’s shared decision making.

At OrthoKansas, you are supported by a team of highly trained experts throughout your treatment and recovery. Learn more about Dr. Goodyear's team. (pdf)

Provider Review Comments

March 22, 2021
In my opinion Dr. Goodyear is a wonderful surgeon. After my hip surgery, my hair stylist was amazed at how well and how quickly I recovered. I recommended Dr. Goodyear to her as a surgeon for her husband, who was having continuing problems with one of his knees. Dr. Goodyear did his knee surgery and he and my stylist were extremely satisfied.

Excellent Doctor

I have complete confidence in Dr. Goodyear. He's performed hip replacements on my husband, and I was well-informed about my left knee replacement. He's very careful about infection control. He invites questions and thoroughly answers them. He repeated that I should call or "drop in" if I have any issues or think of questions, and it feels as if he means exactly what he says. I've recommended him to many friends.
