The KCBJ Story
Since 1940, Kansas City Bone & Joint Clinic has provided orthopedic service and compassion in Overland Park for patients with musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. In 2007, we opened our new facility at 10701 Nall. In 2011, we joined Signature Medical Group as a division of Signature Medical Group of K.C., PA. In March, 2015 we opened our Lee’s Summit office at 3151 NE Carnegie Drive in Lee’s Summit. In January 2018 we expanded our clinics to the Olathe area, within the Olathe Medical Center via Johnson County Orthopedics located at 20920 W. 151st Street, Suite 100 in Olathe, Kansas.
Our specific focus is the musculoskeletal system, the system of the body that includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves and any structures related to them. Along with general orthopedic surgery and physical medicine and rehabilitation, KCBJ has orthopaedic surgeons with fellowship training in total joint replacement, sports medicine, hand surgery, foot and ankle surgery, knee, shoulder, and ankle arthroscopy.
Kansas City Bone and Joint Clinic’s physicians are all board-certified. Board certification indicates the physician has passed rigid oral and written or computer based training administered by members of an American Specialty Board, and has documented surgical cases reviewed by their examiners for a required period of time. It is an important consideration for any patients looking for specialty care.

“I know Dr. Samuelson would not do surgery if it was not absolutely necessary. That’s a thing I think between patient and surgeon. I mean, you essentially place your life in their hand and that would be difficult to do if you did not have total trust. Which I do, with Dr. Samuelson.”
