Biography

“I get to fix patients and that's the whole thing. You see somebody when they're hurt. It's also great that you can see them walking downtown, and then when they see you they’ve got a smile on their face because they feel better. That's what it's all about.”

Ken Filsinger received his Bachelor of Science degree in Education and Athletic Training from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He later received his Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Wayne State University. Ken works with Dr. Richard Wendt at OrthoKansas and brings more than 20 years of experience working in orthopedics, specializing in total joints, general orthopedics and sports medicine, as well as spine and rehab.

What advice does Ken have for his patients?

“Make sure you tell us what's really going on,” he said. “Even if it's embarrassing or it's something that you may not want to share, tell us because it's probably something we need to know. And if you're in pain, call. Don't be at home and be miserable. Don't let pain interfere with your life. Let's see if we can make it better.”

Philosophy Of Care

I'll put my cards on the table. I'll try and give you the best answer that I can for you. That if you come to see me, I hope we can figure out what's going on. If one and one don't equal two, we’ll get more people involved to get you the proper care.

Provider Review Comments

Everyone was so helpful
October 26, 2021
I found the PA's description of what to do about the problem to be confusing. He said something about some people had surgery, some didn't, and it was up to us. Not really helpful without speaking with an actual doctor. X-rays were taken and he used them to show the shoulder anatomy but he didn't really say if the X-rays showed any problems or not. Overall I didn't find the visit helpful and was disappointed that the clinic didn't have a doctor available for kids to see. PAs are not doctors and I might not have gone if I realized we wouldn't see a doctor:

Dr. Ken listened to my concerns and made suggestions for before and after surgery treatments that I didn't think of.

I have already sent several people I know to see dr. Wendt. I wouldn't do that if I didn't think he would help them with their medical needs.
