A board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with advanced fellowship training in adult reconstructive surgery, Dr. James Joseph specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of hip and knee disorders with additional expertise in the field of total hip and knee joint replacement. He has served as an orthopaedic surgeon at Kansas Joint & Spine Specialists, and in his practice, Dr. Joseph is dedicated to providing the specialized care his patients deserve and helping them return to their favorite activities.
After graduating from medical school at the University of Colorado Anschutz School of Medicine in Aurora, Colorado, in 1984, Dr. Joseph went on to complete his residency at The University of Kansas School of Medicine–Wichita, Wesley Medical Center, and St. Francis Medical Center in 1989.

Inspired at the age of eight by his uncle who helped Dr. Joseph's father, he pursed medicine.
