Jeff Klott, MD, is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine doctor who has a special emphasis in treating conditions of the shoulder and knee joints. Dr. Klott sees patients at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute and at Capital Region Medical Center for general orthopaedic surgeries, shoulder replacement, knee and shoulder arthroscopy, knee ligament reconstruction and knee cartilage procedures.

As a former football player at Truman State University, Dr. Klott is passionate about helping patients relieve or reduce pain from injuries to their knees, elbows, shoulders and hips through both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. He emphasizes discussion and trust-based relationships to help patients make treatment plans that best fit their current situation and goals, working with other surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, and kinesiology and biomechanics researchers when needed.

Though sports have no offseason, Dr. Klott enjoys time outside with his wife Erin, kids Jane, Mark and Adam, and black Labrador retriever Louie whenever he can. You can either find him at local sporting events or on his family’s small farm, where he likes to hunt.
