Doctor Nelson's Bio

Our family takes pride in service to others. “Leave things better,” is the legacy of my previous three generations, and medicine is one of the ways I can serve others. As an orthopedic surgeon for sports medicine, I diagnose, treat and operate on all levels of athletes who have experienced the misfortune of an injury. 

As an NCAA Division 1 athlete and now triathlete, I understand the love between athlete and sport. As of 2016, I will have celebrated five seasons as a team orthopedic surgeon for the Kansas City Royals and four seasons as a team orthopedic surgeon for the Kansas City Chiefs. My areas of surgical specialization include the knee, shoulder and elbow. I have been blessed with a beautiful wife and three wonderful children.
