Dr. Sarah Schippers is a board-eligible orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hand and upper extremity surgery. She obtained both undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Kansas before completing an orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics. Dr. Schippers then completed the Minnesota Hand Fellowship in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Dr. Schippers was drawn to hand surgery because of its combination of complex anatomy, ability to treat patients of all ages and opportunity to restore function after injury.
A member of the Kansas Medical Society, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Medical Society of Sedgwick County, and American Society for Surgery of the Hand, Dr. Schippers serves on the staff of Via Christi Health System, Wesley Medical Center, Kansas Medical Center, Kansas Spine and Specialty Hospital, Kansas Surgery and Recovery Center, Surgicare, Cypress Surgery Center and Surgery Center of Kansas.
After growing up in western Sedgwick County, Dr. Schippers is thrilled to be back practicing in the community. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, cheering on the Jayhawks, and long-distance running.
