  • Video Transcript

    My name is Dr. Michael Latteier. I'm an orthopedic surgeon at Kansas City Bone & Joint. I specialize in joint replacement of the hip and knee and revision surgery as well.

    I've had the opportunity to work with some of the best orthopedic surgeons and joint replacement surgeons in the country and I've been able to do hundreds of surgeries with them to hone my skills in joint replacement. Been board certified in orthopedic surgery and attend the national meetings to keep up to date with some of the latest and newest technologies in orthopedic surgery as well.

    A lot of my function as an orthopedic surgeon is to teach and educate patients about their joints, their bones, about what's going on underneath the surface so that you have a better understanding about why they're having the symptoms that they're having.

    I like to spend time teaching the patients about arthritis, about bone health, and what they can do to keep their joints in good shape. I like to help them understand why they're having pain and I think once they are able to understand that and they have a better understanding of what's going on in their joint, it helps them understand the treatment options better. And by working with them and what their expectations are, once they have a clear understanding of what's of what's going on, it helps us stay on the same page and come up with a good solution to their problems better.

"I am committed to understanding my patients' concerns and finding the best possible options to restore their mobility, function, and quality of life."
