Dr. Corey Trease is a board-certified orthopedic and sports medicine surgeon specializing in bone, joint, and muscle care for all ages and the treatment of sports-related injuries and conditions. He joined the Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center in 2005. His surgical expertise includes endoscopic carpal tunnel release, knee and shoulder arthroscopy, and partial knee replacement procedures. He also provides nonsurgical care focused on bone health improvement.

Dr. Trease received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Nebraska. He went on to attend the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska, before undergoing an orthopedic internship training rotation at Belize City Hospital in Belize City, Belize. He concluded his orthopedic internship at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas, where he also completed his orthopedic surgery residency training. 

In his practice, Dr. Trease believes successful treatment begins by taking the time to carefully listen to the patient so that he can understand how the problem is impacting his patient’s quality of life. He always performs a thorough examination and only orders tests that are needed to establish a diagnosis and appropriate treatment options. He strives to ensure his patients are fully informed of the treatment options and how those options will affect their well-being. Dr. Trease enjoys having the ability to get his patients back to the activities that they have been unable to do because of their pain. 

Dr. Trease is available to see patients at our office in St. Joseph, Missouri.
