“Beginning January 6, 2020, Dr. James Huston, a native of Kansas, graduate of the University of Kansas School of Medicine program, and a member of the OrthoKansas orthopedic practice in Lawrence, KS will begin seeing patients every Monday in the Newman Regional Health Medical Partners Orthopedics & Sports Medicine clinic in Emporia,” said Bob Wright, CEO at Newman Regional Health. “Dr. Huston is a respected and highly trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacements and revisions and other general orthopedic and sports medicine conditions.” Helena Stormont, APRN, Lindsay Garrett, PA, Andrew Kneib, PA, and Ryan LaSota, MD will continue to be available Monday through Friday to assist patients with non-surgical

Each Monday, Dr. Huston will be the primary orthopedic physician in the clinic. He will see patients for general office visits and to evaluate the need for surgery. Other OrthoKansas physicians will also be available on Fridays, rotating though the Emporia location to provide a range of orthopedic specialties including, but not limited to, foot, ankle, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder care.

“Newman Regional Health Medical Partners is excited to begin our venture with OrthoKansas,” said Lynn Doeden, Clinic Administrator for Newman Regional Health Medical Partners. “Patients will be able to be seen by an OrthoKansas orthopedic surgeon right here in Emporia at our very own orthopedics & sports medicine clinic and have surgery and/or follow-up care locally, if that is what is required. With state-of-the-art imaging services, including digital x-ray in the clinic, CT and MRI at Newman Regional Health, and physical/occupational therapies on-site, everything is kept local for our patients.”
