Dr. Peer Selected as Faculty for an AAOS Arthroscopy course in Chicago

The Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Clinic of Kansas City is pleased to announce that one of our partners, Chris Peer, MS, MD, was recently chosen by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons as a Faculty Instructor. This is a tremendous recognition of Dr. Peer’s skills and accomplishments in the field of arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery is commonly used in orthopaedic sports medicine for minimally invasive repair and reconstruction of injuries to the knee and shoulder. Dr. Peer has treated thousands of athletes, from professional to weekend warrior level, over the past 12 years.

Dr. Peer served as Faculty Member for the AAOS Fundamentals of Knee and Shoulder Arthroscopy for Orthopaedic Residents. The course was held outside Chicago at the Orthopaedic Learning Center at the AAOS National Headquarters. Orthopaedic surgery residents from around the country and around the world attended a three-day intensive arthroscopic skills course taught by some of the leading sports arthroscopic surgeons from the U.S. The course was held over a long weekend in October.

Dr. Peer has experience teaching at many levels, all the way from College to Surgical Residency and Sports Medicine Subspecialty Fellowship training. He says, “I have always had an interest in teaching. From my time as a researcher at the National Cancer Institute I was an ‘NIH Science Alliance’ team leader for elementary school outreach in science education. I was thrilled to be asked recently to return to Kansas City to join my partners in the UMKC Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship. I think my aptitude in teaching shows in the way I care for patients who often are underwhelmed by the amount of accurate applicable information they have about their OWN orthopaedic issue. And of course, the internet often makes matters more confusing.”

Indeed, Dr. Peer was awarded the University of New Mexico Resident Teaching award in 2005 as well as the Staff Leadership Award in the same year. Dr. Peer holds multiple academic awards and is Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and holds a Subspecialty Certificate in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Peer for a specialty evaluation or second opinion of your knee or shoulder problem please give us a call at 913-319-7500.
