Meet Daniel Sisk, M.D., Sports Medicine-Physiatrist
My name is Daniel Sisk, and I’m a Sports Medicine Physiatrist. Physiatry is a specialty that lives between orthopedics, neurology and family medicine. My training has really been broad, so I’m able to handle any musculoskeletal injuries that walk through the door.
I’m a Kansas City native. I did my training out on the west coast in Seattle [at University of Washington Affiliated Hospitals] and at Stanford. My goal was always to make it back to Kansas City. I grew up in Overland Park and then went to KU for undergrad and medical school.
At Stanford, I was the team physician for track and field, cross country, wrestling, volleyball and field hockey. I got to work with Olympic athletes, gold medal athletes, in several other sports as well. It was a great experience. I got to be on the sideline treating injuries, as well as seeing them in clinic.
I was very lucky through my training and schooling to be involved in several charitable organizations, and now, finally, I get give back to my hometown. This was something that really attracted me to Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics – their commitment to getting more involved in the community and improving the community’s health and wellbeing.
My philosophy for patient care is to be patient-centric. I want every patient who walks through the door to know exactly what their options are and to be able to make their own choices for where their medical care goes.
Patients can come see me at Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute in Leawood, Kansas, and the Saint Luke’s Medical Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri. I want to be flexible and accessible to all of my patients. I have multiple days at both locations, so they can come see me whenever it fits their schedules.
