Timothy Badwey, MD

Focus is the ankle and foot, with emphasis on conservative treatments of disease and injury, both surgical and non-surgical, ankle arthroscopy, sports-related injury, and achilles tendon injury. 

Mark Bernhardt, MD

Focus is the spine, cervical through sacral. Dr. Bernhardt specializes in spinal surgery for a wide variety of conditions and injuries, including scoliosis. He also performs many surgical correctional procedures involving fusions and instrumentation.

Stanley Bowling, MD

Focus lies within fracture care and orthopaedic trauma for the entire lower extremity, as well as the shoulder. Dr. Bowling has a blog of his own, providing information ranging from post-injury care to procedures he specializes in, that is accessible through the Dickson-Dively website (as to many of the other surgeons!)

Brian Divelbuss, MD

Focus lies within the upper extremity, with special emphasis on the hand. His specialties, however, remain within the distal portion of the upper extremity, in the hand, wrist, and elbow. Dr. Divelbuss is the current President and CEO of Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics, and carries a reputation that treatment paired with education most often results in a successful procedure and recovery. 

Constantine L. Fotopoulos, MD

As an interventional physiatrist, his focus lies within minimally-invasive, interventional procedures for the treatment of spinal disorders, although he does treat general orthopaedic pain in the shoulder, knee, and hip pain, as well as the neck and back. Some of his specialties include epidural injections, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, and spinal cord stimulation.  Dr. Fotopoulos also has extensive knowledge in hyperbaric and diving-related injuries, as well as past experience with athletic injuries due to professional ties with the Kansas City Explorers tennis team, a former KC Royals Team Physician, and the State of Missouri Mixed Martial Arts Physician. He is fluent in english and greek, and proficient in basics of Italian, Russian, Spanish, and Arabic. 

Robert Gardiner, MD

Focus lies within the hip and knee, as he's been performing hip and knee total joint replacements for over 20 years. Dr. Gardiner does have expertise in treating athletic injuries, as well, as he served as the Team Physician for the KC Blades hockey team from 1992-2001. 

Danny Gurba, MD

Focus lies within the hip and knee, with emphasis on total joint replacement procedures. Dr. Gurba himself reports spending 95% of his clinical and surgical time between the hip and knee. Dickson-Diveley reports that Dr. Gurba has performed over 9,000 hip and knee replacements throughout his career with them. 

James Halloran, MD

Focus lies within diagnosis and treatment of conditions, deficits, and defects of the distal joints in the lower extremity, including the knee, ankle, and foot. Dr. Halloran has completed fellowships in both foot and ankle surgery, as well as sports medicine which has lead to his extensive knowledge of repair and reconstruction possibilities for a wide array of circumstances. This combination lead to his professional ties with the Detroit Pistons (NBA), the Detroit Red Wings (NHL), the Detroit Tigers (MLB), and the Duke University Men's Soccer team, all prior to relocating back to Kansas City.
