  • Video Transcript

    My name is Dr. Greg Lynch. I am an orthopedic surgeon with Kansas City Bone & Joint.

    I am board-certified in both general orthopedics and sports medicine. I love what I do, I love coming to work and treating people and getting them better either nonsurgically or surgically and so I think what makes a good doctor is the ability to relate to people on an individual basis and not just treat them as a chart or a number, but actually a person who's going through a significant part of their life.

    One of my passions is sports. I'm an old athlete myself. I played some college football. I've had my own injuries doing those activities and so I know what it's like to not be able to participate. I just want patients to know that I've been there and that I have the training and now the experience over 18 years of taking care of a lot of sports injuries and I'm very comfortable seeing them and hopefully helping them nonsurgically but surgically if necessary.

    And then, additionally, as patients age I'm able to take care of their degenerative body as well as they start to develop arthritis. I've been doing this long enough now that I've seen patients that I operated on when I was first out of training that are now into periods of their life where they need knee and shoulder replacements and I'm capable of taking them through there.

    So even though orthopedic surgeons are generally episodic care doctors - we see people and then we release them - but with some of the work that I do, now that I've been doing this long enough, I'm able to actually have a transitional care with some patients who I actually see episodically throughout their entire life and I think that's helpful for a patient that they develop a comfort level with their doctor that they can continue to come back and see. And I like to think that I'm a doctor that can do that for them.
