More About Dr. Halloran

Dr. J.P. Halloran was born in California but raised a “lake kid” at Lake of the Ozarks. He graduated from Camdenton High School and moved to Kansas City to complete the combined undergrad/MD program at UMKC.

After medical school, his journey took him to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, where he completed his Orthopaedic residency and became a lover of French cuisine!

After his orthopaedic residency, Dr. Halloran returned to the United States to complete fellowships in sports medicine and foot/ankle surgery. He completed his sports medicine fellowship at the Detroit Medical Center, and the following year he went to Duke University to complete his foot/ankle fellowship.

Dr. Halloran received comprehensive training from world-renowned experts in total ankle arthroplasty and cartilage restoration at Duke University. These are very complex procedures that can return function to an active person. Using a combination of total-ankle replacement systems or a multitude of cartilage-restoration techniques, he is able to tailor the ankle treatment to best fit each patient’s needs.

After 7 years of training, Dr. Halloran returned to his Midwest roots in KC and joined KCOA (formerly Dickson-Diveley Orthopedics). He arrived in the fall of 2013 and has been practicing in the city ever since. Dr. Halloran’s commitment to active lifestyle and athletics is evident in both his personal belief that activity leads to better health and his involvement with sports teams. Throughout his training, Dr. Halloran has been Assistant Team Physician for the Detroit Pistons (NBA), Detroit Red Wings (NHL), Detroit Tigers (MLB) and Duke University men’s soccer team. In Kansas City, he is a consultant for the Kansas City Ballet and team physician for the Pembroke Hill high school football team.

Dr. Halloran strives to treat each patient with compassion and humility. It is his firm belief that the doctor-patient relationship needs to function like a “team” to provide cutting-edge care and exceptional patient outcomes.

Outside of Work

When not working, he can usually be found “living the lake life” in the summer. He is an avid wake surfer and water sports fan! In the winter, in his free time, you’ll find him snowboarding down a mountain.
