Joint replacement surgery can significantly reduce your pain and improve your quality of life. However, it’s extremely important to find the right clinic to perform your procedure. 

Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance is the Midwest’s premier provider of orthopedic care. As the largest orthopedic practice in Kansas City, we perform the highest number of joint replacements in the area. We have 6 convenient locations across the KC metro—Overland Park, Merriam, Leawood, Belton, Kansas City, and Blue Springs.

 In this blog, we’ll discuss how to locate the best clinic for your joint replacement surgery in KC. 

1. Hospital vs. private practice

You can choose to receive surgery through a hospital or a private practice. These locations provide very different types of patient experiences. 

KCOA believes customized care is a major strength of the private practice model. We take an individualized and personalized approach to care, because we have the time to do so. 

On the other hand, it can be easy to get lost in the system at a large hospital. Patients often tell us that communication is very frustrating and can feel impersonal. 

Another strength of the private practice model is that it allows for options in your care. KCOA surgeons specialize in specific procedures and are among the best at what they do. At a hospital, you will have fewer choices of providers. 

2. Ask friends and family for referrals 

Word of mouth can be a great way to find clinics in your area. Ask friends or family if they have had similar procedures at local clinics. You can also ask your primary care provider, physical therapist, or orthopedic physician for recommendations. 

3. Research their reputation

Even if you get a referral from your doctor or a friend, It’s important to read patient reviews. Look at reviews about the specific surgeon, but also for reviews about the practice as a whole—including the communication, nurses, and administrative staff. All these factors can significantly impact your experience. 

KCOA is proud to have earned the trust of so many patients throughout the Midwest. 

“The entire staff was terrific and by far exceeded my expectations. The facility, amenities, and attention to detail was outstanding. I will highly recommend KCOA to anyone. Thank you all for your wonderful care.” – Rick M.

4. Schedule a consultation

Once you have identified a potential provider, you’ll want to schedule an appointment to meet the provider in person to learn more about them. This is the time to ask questions about their training and learn about their experience with the procedure.
