Robert A. Kinzinger, MD

Broken Bones Hip & Knee Joint Replacement Hip/Pelvis Knee Orthopaedic Trauma
Great Plains Orthopaedics


Certification & Education

Dr. Kinzinger grew up in rural central Illinois on a farm. He considers it a special privilege to have returned to his roots, and serve people from all over central Illinois and the midwest.

Dr. Kinzinger has a particular interest in orthopaedic trauma, for adults and children. This includes a wide variety of injuries resulting from simple slip and falls to motor vehicle accidents and other high energy trauma. He also sees patients with complications from orthopaedic trauma surgery, including nonunions and malunions.

Additionally, he performs total hip, partial and total knee replacements. He states “Joint replacement and trauma surgery go hand in hand. The lessons learned on each side definitely improve the process of the other.” Dr. Kinzinger is pleased to offer out-patient hip and knee replacement surgeries to the appropriate patients. Out-patient hip and knee replacement procedures have shown that patients tend to experience ¬†accelerated recovery and rehabilitation progression.

However, Dr. Kinzinger never loses sight of the fact that his role as a physician is not just about the body itself. “I am able to interact with-and help-individuals and their families during some of the most difficult times of their lives and put them on the road to recovery,” he says. “There’s something very special about that.”

Dr. Kinzinger and his wife have been blessed with three children. He is an avid outdoorsman. In his spare time, he enjoys farming with his family, hunting, and fishing.
