Dr. McCabe was an immediate convert to Kansas City BBQ after moving here in 2016.
He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the prestigious Campbell Clinic in Memphis, TN and then completed a fellowship accredited in both sports medicine and arthroscopy (minimally invasive orthopedic surgery) at Mississippi Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center. He is board certified and holds a sub-specialty certificate in orthopedic sports medicine.
Following fellowship, Dr. McCabe served as clinical faculty in the Shoulder Surgery & Sports Medicine Division of the Orthopedic Surgery Department at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. He was an associate program director for the National Capital Consortium orthopedic surgery residency and was faculty at the Uniformed Services University for Health Sciences.
While at Walter Reed, Dr. McCabe provided sports medicine care to a variety of patients including active duty service members and dependents, Wounded Warriors, as well as members of United States Congress and the Presidential Cabinet. During this time, he was a sports medicine consultant to United States Congress and provided sideline support for the Congressional intra-mural athletics program.
His professional interests include open and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, knee and hip. He has a special focus in hip arthroscopy including a procedure known as labral reconstruction for irreparable labral tears. In addition, Dr. McCabe has certification in an advanced cartilage reconstruction procedure of the knee known as MACI which involves “harvesting” cartilage cells from the patient’s knee followed by reimplantation to graft cartilage injuries in non-arthritic knees. Dr. McCabe’s interest in arthroscopy extends to shoulder labral tears, rotator cuff tears and elbow injuries as well.
Patient education and an individualized treatment approach are pillars to effective orthopedic care in Dr. McCabe’s practice. He is proud to have Lindsey Brown, NP as a member of his team. Lindsey and Dr. McCabe’s medical assistants are bright, compassionate, energetic and dedicated to patient care. Their commitment to providing a superior patient experience is evident on a daily basis. Dr. McCabe and his team members believe in courtesy, respect, and the importance of sharing a smile with patients and family members.
OUTSIDE OF WORK
His work on treating complex shoulder instability with a technique known as “remplissage” was nominated for a clinical science award by the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Society. In addition, his collaboration on research at Walter Reed led to the publication of the definitive study on return to driving following hip arthroscopy. He has given dozens of lectures at the local, regional and national level on various topics in orthopedics and sports medicine.
In his free time, Dr. McCabe enjoys growing deeper roots into the Kansas City community with his wife, a Nashville native, and his children. He enjoys going to the park with his children, touring the many attractions in KC, and following Sporting KC, the Chiefs, Royals, US Soccer and Notre Dame football.
