Shane Schutt, MD - Orthopedic Surgeon: Foot & Ankle Specialist, Complex Orthopedic Trauma

Dr. Shane Schutt’s passion for orthopedics can be traced back to when he was a teenager in high school. During that time, he worked for an orthopedic surgeon in his home town. Seeing this surgeon perform procedures that helped people overcome debilitating diseases, deformities, and injuries inspired Dr. Schutt to follow the same path.

Desiring to be like the surgeon from his youth, Dr. Schutt completed medical school at Creighton University School of Medicine and his residency at Kansas University Medical Center. Additionally, he completed his foot and ankle surgery fellowship at the Coughlin Clinic in Boise, Idaho. Today, he is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in foot and ankle surgery. He also performs complex surgical trauma cases for fractures of the hip and knee along with fratures around prosthetic joints.

When it comes to patient relationships, Dr. Schutt emphasizes good communication between the physician and the patient. He believes that in order to properly diagnose a problem, it is necessary to listen to patients and address any questions or concerns they have. He also believes it is important to build trust, as surgery requires acute precision for a perfect result.

In his free time, Dr. Schutt enjoys being outdoors. He loves playing sports, frequently golfing on nice days. He also owns a 60-acre plot of land and spends his time mowing and maintaining the fields, cutting trees, feeding chickens and tractor maintenance.
