Meet Dr. Mark Winston, Orthopedic Surgeon
My name is Dr. Mark Winston. I grew up in Wisconsin but moved to Kansas City for the combined undergrad and medical school training at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I completed my advanced (fellowship) training in hand and upper extremity surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.
I chose orthopedics because of my love for sports. I played competitive tennis my entire life and played through the college level. Once my competitive career was over, I knew that I wanted to take care of athletes and take care of sports-related injuries.
During my time in Kansas City, I fell in love with the city. I had a chance to work with the Dickson-Diveley group, so when I started looking for jobs, it was really a no-brainer that I would be coming back to Kansas City to start my practice.
When I first meet a patient, it’s very important for me to listen to the patient and obtain a good history. I feel that the diagnosis can often be obtained from the history alone and then confirmed with radiographs and a physical exam.
