Dr. McNamara's bio

This content was provided by Dr. McNamara "Gerald R. McNamara, MD I became a part of Kansas City Bone & Joint Clinic in June of 1996 but have been in practice since 1983. I earned my undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Arizona, Tucson and completed my orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Kansas, School of Medicine. I am Board Certified in orthopaedic surgery. In 14 years, I have been the team physician for local professional indoor soccer teams, The Comets and The KC Attack. Giving back is important to me and I have participated with Tarhawks Charity Surgery for many years participating in multiple medical missions to Nicaragua. In March of 2010, I was awarded the Menorah Medical Center First Humanitarian Award. In December 2012, 2013, and 2015 I participated in Operation Walk USA providing knee replacements with other nursing and hospital volunteers. Outside of the clinic and surgery, I enjoy listening to music and playing guitar with a garage band, spending time with my family and KU basketball. I enjoy the challenges and rewards of my job as an Orthopaedic surgeon. It has given me the opportunity to improve patients' quality of life both surgically and non-surgically. It is rewarding to be instrumental in that."
