NRMC Welcomes Orthopedic Surgeon


Nevada Regional Medical Center (NRMC) is proud to welcome Justin S. Ogden, MD to its medical staff. Dr. Ogden is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, and a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Dr. Ogden was born in Joplin and is a lifelong Missouri resident. After graduating high school in Lockwood and undergraduate school at Missouri State University, he earned his medical degree from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Mo in 2001 and went on to complete his internship and residency in orthopedic surgery with the University of Louisville, Kentucky.

After working as an orthopedic surgeon at the Ferrell-Duncan clinic for four years in 2010, he began working full time at Cox Barton County Hospital (CBCH – formerly Barton County Memorial) where he will still work part-time. He also serves at the Medical Director of Physical Therapy at CBCH, a position he has held since 2011.


Dr. Ogden is scheduled two days each week at NRMC beginning September 2 in the Professional Practice Clinic located on the second floor of the south tower at 800 S. Ash Street in Nevada. He is accepting new patients and no referral is needed. Initially, he will see all ages for office visits and outpatient surgery with plans to develop an inpatient and total joint surgery program.

Currently, Dr. Ogden serves as Vice President of the Lamar R-1 School District Board of Education, where he has been a board member since 2014. In the fall, Dr. Ogden spends many hours working with high school youth, serving as the Lamar High School Football Team Physician for the past ten years.

“The extent of orthopedic services that Dr. Ogden will provide has been a big need in our area for many years,” says Steve Branstetter, NRMC Chief Executive Officer. “We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with him to offer excellent orthopedic care again.”
