Jeffrey L. Horinek, M.D.
Dr Horinek is a native of Atwood, Kansas where he grew up working on his family’s farm and excelled in sports. He attended Colorado State University on a football scholarship and was named a finalist for the “Academic Heisman” for his efforts on the gridiron, in school, and in the community. This award gave him the confidence to pursue medicine after his graduation and to spend a brief time at Fort Hays completing his premedical requirements where he met his wonderful wife, Tracie.
He is grateful to have attended KU-Salina for medical school planning to become a family practitioner. However, during his third-year clinical rotation with his mentors at Salina Ortho he quickly knew that orthopedics would be his home. He went on to complete his residency at Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center and a one-year shoulder specialty fellowship at the Oregon Shoulder Institute with world-renowned shoulder specialist, Patrick Denard. At OSI he was able to learn the most innovative techniques for operative and nonoperative management of shoulder conditions, and he also participated in clinical research including shoulder arthroscopy, replacement, instability, and fractures that has been presented at the regional, national, and international level. His work on shoulder instability earned him the Robert Cofield Award for best fellow article of the year. He looks forward to continuing to stay active in clinical research.
Dr Horinek specializes in shoulder-related conditions, but he also has a passion for general orthopedics and getting people back to an active lifestyle whether it’s playing sports, walking through the store, or just reaching to the top shelf. He is happy to finally return home with his wife and four boys and serve the great people of Kansas with their orthopedic needs.
