Dr. Brian Duncan is an experienced orthopedic surgeon providing surgery services for Amberwell Health. Dr. Duncan provides surgical clinic and procedure services at Amberwell Atchison and Amberwell Hiawatha, as well as surgical clinic services at Amberwell Leavenworth.
Dr. Duncan offers a wide range of treatments for chronic and acute orthopedic injuries and conditions. His specialties include elbow, hand, shoulder, wrist, ankle, foot, hip, knee, pediatric orthopedics, and sports medicine. He routinely performs rotator cuff repair, cubital and carpal tunnel release, tendon repair, ACL reconstruction, total knee replacement, and anterior total hip replacement.
Dr. Duncan decided to go into orthopedic surgery while he was an undergraduate student. “During the summer after my freshmen year of college, I went home to west Tennessee and got a part–time job with an orthopedic surgeon,” says Duncan. “For the next two years, I worked summers and Christmas breaks with that surgeon, and I loved it. I was able to witness the entire process, from diagnosis to recovery. I could really see the positive impact the surgeon had on his patients’ lives.”
After graduating from Hendrix College in Arkansas, Dr. Duncan earned his medical degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. He went on to perform his residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Kansas Medical Center. After medical school, Dr. Duncan served as the chief of orthopedic surgery at Kansas City VA Medical Center, and was an associate professor of orthopedic surgery at University of Kansas Hospital. He then practiced orthopedic surgery in St. Joseph, Missouri, for ten years prior to joining Amberwell Health.
Dr. Duncan and his wife have two teenage children. When he isn’t caring for orthopedic patients, Dr. Duncan is a great fan of the outdoors and enjoys hunting, fishing, and camping.
