University of Missouri Health Care has been recognized as high performing in orthopaedics by U.S. News and World Report. The annual U.S. News rankings recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients.

“We appreciate this important recognition of our outstanding orthopaedic team at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute,” said James Stannard, MD, medical director of the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute and the Hansjörg Wyss Distinguished Chair in Orthopaedic Surgery. “We are committed to providing the latest evidence-based orthopaedic care and technology in a setting that is renowned for patient-centered, concierge care.”

“Our orthopaedic specialists are among the national leaders in hand, spine, hip, knee and shoulder surgery,” Stannard said. “And MU is internationally known for our pioneering work at the Mizzou BioJoint® Center using human tissue.”

Orthopaedic specialty care provided at the institute also includes advanced limb preservation treatments by a multidisciplinary team who care for patients at high risk for limb amputation or non-healing wounds.

The Missouri Orthopaedic Institute is central Missouri’s largest freestanding orthopaedic center, as well as the region’s most comprehensive orthopaedic surgery center. The institute’s expert surgeons, nurses, rehabilitation staff and other health professionals offer patients a full range of care in a single location.

U.S. News and World Report’s Best Hospital rankings were determined by public data, such as information collected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, as well as survey responses from medical specialists.
