Matthew Mackay, MD Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Physician
Matthew Mackay, MD
My interest in orthopedic sports medicine began at an early age and has progressively grown throughout the years, largely due to my love for helping patients return to their functional and recreational activities. I also enjoy working with my hands and using my knowledge to improve patient function and independence.
I have a primary interest in sports medicine with a special interest in arthroscopic and open treatment of knee and shoulder pathology. Originally from Amarillo, Texas, I earned my undergraduate degree at Baylor University and my medical degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch. I then went on to complete a residency in orthopedic surgery at The University of Kansas Health System, at which time Kansas City became home.
Thereafter, I completed my sports medicine fellowship at University Health and with the Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Clinic of Kansas City. During this time, I honed my expertise on arthroscopic and open treatment of knee and shoulder pathologies, as well as other general sports medicine treatments. Throughout my training, I have contributed to the overall sports medicine knowledge base through research and publications ranging from basic science research on cartilage to various systematic reviews, all of which have contributed to my knowledge of complex conditions encountered in orthopedics.
I perform all aspects of general orthopedics for patients 12 years of age and older. From adolescents to geriatrics and elite athletes to weekend warriors, my goal is to provide premiere operative and non-operative options for patients to return to the activities they enjoy, as quickly as possible. I look forward to helping you reach your functional goals and improve your quality of life.
