Thomas S. Samuelson, MD Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Physician
Thomas S. Samuelson, MD
I became a part of the Kansas City Bone & Joint team in August of 1994 and am board certified in both Orthopaedic Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. Prior to joining the KCBJ team, I completed my residency at the University of Kansas, School of Medicine and my sports medicine fellowship at Louisiana State University. I grew up in Iowa and earned my undergraduate degree at Iowa State University and my medical degree at the University of Iowa College of Medicine.
My primary interest is sports medicine with a special interest in knees and shoulders. Over the years I have been affiliated with the athletic programs for Baker University, University of Missouri Kansas City, Rockhurst University, the Kansas City Comets and The Kansas City Attack soccer teams. Currently, I am one of the team physician for Rockhurst High School.
I like to stay current with up to date advancements in sports medicine and am a member of AOSSM (American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine) and AANA (Arthroscopy Association of North America).
I have always enjoyed fixing things which makes my career in Orthopaedics so enjoyable. It is very satisfying to help an injured athlete or employee return to their normal active lifestyle.
Giving back is important to me and I have recently participated in Operation Walk USA to assist those in need. I also enjoy participating in volunteer and mission work with my church.
Outside of the office and operating room, I enjoy spending time with my family and participating in all types of outdoor recreational activities.
