New orthopedic specialist to serve 3 area hospitals
06/10/2021

Dr. Streit

(KLZA)-- A Richardson County, Nebraska native and Air Force Veteran will begin his orthopedic medical practice serving three area hospitals in August. 

Dr. Adam Streit  is currently completing his military career based in St. Louis. During an interview with MSC News Tuesday, Dr. Streit said he grew up on a small farm south of Humboldt and graduated from HTRS and went on to Kansas State University where he received a degree in mechanical engineering.  

Streit said he always saw himself returning to the area and that following medical school he was in contact in neighboring hospitals that indicated a growing need for orthopedic surgical care in the area and he is happy they have been able to work out a very unique partnership between three local hospitals. 

Dr. Streit will offer clinic and surgery services at Community Medical Center, Nemaha County Hospital in Auburn, and Sabetha Community Hospital in Kansas. Falls City’s services will include evaluation, treatment of sports injuries, and simple procedures such as rotator cuff repair, meniscus injuries and ACL reconstruction where the patient goes home the same day, and larger cases like total knee and hip replacement surgeries using modern techniques that will have the patients up and walking the same day and hopefully returning home the next day.

Similar cases, initially focused on outpatient procedures will be performed at the hospitals in both Auburn and Sabetha.

The doctor says that surgery is not the only answer when dealing with orthopedic issues. Injections, physical therapy and splinting are options to be considered before surgery. 

Streit said that appointments can be made for August starting in mid-July for his Falls City location, reachable at 402-245-6510. Start dates for his practice in Sabetha and Auburn are being determined. Appointments for these locations can be made using the number above, or through the outpatient clinics at the Sabetha Community Hospital and the Nemaha County hospital in Auburn. Dr. Streit will be based at Community Medical Center in Falls City but will also offer services in Auburn, Nebraska as well as Sabetha, Kansas.  At Falls City outpatient services will be provided as well as surgeries such as rotator cuff repair and meniscus injuries where the patient goes home the same day.  Total knee and hip replacement surgeries will also be performed using modern techniques that will have the patients up and walking the same day and hopefully returning home the next day. 

Dr. Streit said that appointments can be made for August starting in mid-July. You can contact the Falls City office at CMC at 402-245-6510 and those wanting to see the doctor in Sabetha or in Auburn should contact the Outpatient Clinics at the Sabetha Community Hospital and the Nemaha County Hospital in Auburn.
