  1. The certifications occur every three years after an onsite review where experts from the Joint Commission evaluated WMMC's national disease-specific care compliance standards. Compliance with hip and knee replacement-specific standards was also assessed, in addition to clinical practice guidelines and performance measures.
  1. The center has held these certifications for three years before the re-certification. Western Missouri Bone & Joint provides orthopedic services including partial, total and revision joint replacement, minimally invasive arthroscopic surgeries and sports injury treatment.
