Dr. Schwab most recently worked at Allen County Regional Hospital in Iola and Mercy Physician Group in Fort Scott.
“We have not had an employed orthopedic surgeon in about five years,” said Randy Cason, Ascension Via Christi Hospital president. “Dr. Schwab will be a great asset to our community. Ascension Via Christi is constantly looking for other ways to provide better access to care and keep our patients close to home.”
Dr. Schwab received his medical degree from the University of Nebraska in Omaha. He completed his internship and orthopedic residency at Orlando Regional Medical Center in Orlando, Fla. Dr. Schwab is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Dr. Schwab will begin seeing patients May 6 in his clinic space at Ascension Via Christi Hospital (first floor). Call 620-235-7594 to schedule an appointment. Visit viachristi.org/pittsburg-ortho for more information about the Orthopedic Clinic.
