“My advice to patients is to think through the problem before you see your doctor so you have specific things to share,” he said. “The more clues you have for us, the easier it’s going to be for us to solve the puzzle.”

Dr. Neal Lintecum is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with special interests in hand surgery. He enjoys hand surgery because it has the widest variety of problems and being a hand surgeon allows him to care for patients of all ages.

After graduating from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Dr. Lintecum completed fellowship training in hand and upper extremity surgery at the University of California San Francisco General Hospital in San Francisco and Lindenhofspital/Inselspital in Bern Switzerland. He has a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Surgery of the Hand, the highest qualification available.

Why should patients choose OrthoKansas?

“People should come to OrthoKansas because we have an excellent team, top to bottom. It starts with the people that greet you at the front desk right through every person that you interact with here,” he said. “People come here because they have a problem and everyone is compassionate and understanding. I hope we continue to meet that standard.”

Philosophy Of Care

In a literal sense, it’s conservative – I think most people don’t come in wanting surgery so if we can solve your problem without surgery, we’ll try that first. I’m also collaborative. I want the patient to feel that they have input on and the final say on what we’re doing for their problem.

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

He was dismissive, didn't listen, made contradictory comments. He didn't take me seriously.

While I have been told Dr. Lintecum is a good orthopedic physician, I cannot judge from one appointment. Wearing a t-shirt and jeans does not mean one is not well-educated. Dr. Lintecum dictated a lot of big words, but did not address the reason for my referral and whether it was a valid tentative diagnosis. I am an engaged and inquisitive patient. Next time, I will be better prepared with research and questions.
