Labette Health


From the beginning, our vision has been a commitment to providing the highest quality orthopedic, joint replacement, and sports medicine care to our patients.

Over the years, Labette Health has grown to become the most experienced orthopedic specialty provider in southeast Kansas.

To ensure our patients receive the best available treatment and care, our surgeons and specialists are all specialty trained, which means they have received advanced instruction in their respective fields. Backed by our experienced, patient-friendly staff, you can be assured that the orthopedic team at Labette Health is dedicated to a single goal: making your life better.

Our nationally recognized joint replacement center helps hundreds each year with a rapid-recovery knee and hip replacement program designed to get patients back on their feet the day of surgery and back to their normal routines within a few weeks.

We have created a special program that teams the area's leading group of orthopedic specialists with caring and highly trained nurses, therapists and technicians. Our team's only goal is providing seamless, coordinated care that gets you back to your favorite activities as soon as possible. Many patients are on their feet hours after surgery and are able to return to normal activities within a few weeks.

Before surgery, patients attend an informative class with their families and coaches to learn physical therapy exercises and how to use assistive devices; take care of lab work, histories and physical exams; and hear from others who share the same experiences.

During their recovery, patients wear their own clothes, and family members are encouraged to participate in group activities, meals and other special events. Exercise and therapy are also provided in a group setting, so our patients can support and encourage each other on the road to recovery. Like everything else we do, it's all designed to help you get your life back.
