Central Kansas Orthopedic Group will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, to celebrate its major remodeling effort, as well as the addition of Dr. David Rhodes and physical therapist Troy Moore to the practice. The public is invited to meet Rhodes and Moore and the physical therapy staff, and to tour the newly redone facility.   
Rhodes started his practice with Dr. L.T. Fleske and Dr. Randall Hildebrand on Aug. 1. He is a graduate of the University of Nebraska School of Medicine and he completed his orthopedic residency at the University of Utah.  This summer he completed his fellowship at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, specializing in upper extremity reconstruction and sports medicine.  His training and experience allows him to provide the latest surgical and non-surgical treatments to all orthopedic patients.
Rhodes lives in Great Bend with his wife, Darcy and their five children.
Coming from Wichita where he managed four out-patient clinics and taught at Wichita State University, Moore returned to Great Bend in February to open Central Kansas Orthopedic Group’s new physical therapy department. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree while playing basketball at Emporia State University, his Master’s Degree at Wichita State University and his Doctorate Degree at Regis University in Denver.
“Physical therapy is new to Central Kansas Orthopedic,” Moore said, standing in the vast, open new therapy room. “We just want to make people feel better.”
Moore was instrumental in the design of the new rehab space. “We wanted to give it an open feel,” he said.
With large windows, the room is lined with state-of-the-art exercise equipment and therapy tables. “We’re very hands one, very one-on-one,” he said.
However, he stressed, they work with all patients, from the injured athlete to seniors needing help with balancing better.
In addition, the entire building at 1514 K-96 Highway in Great Bend was renovated. The project, which was completed in September, also included several new private therapy rooms.
The other two physical therapists at CKPG are Jayme Mayers and Larissa Michaelis.
Troy lives in Ellinwood with his wife, Elissa and their three young children.
