About the Practice

Midwest Bone and Joint Center specializes in orthopedic and sports medicine with offices located in Kirksville, Macon, Moberly, and Milan. We are Mid-Missouri’s one-stop shop for orthopedic care; we see our patients from initial non-operative treatment options through surgery until the completion of their rehab process. We utilize cutting-edge equipment and technology, and even have an in-house pharmacy.

Chris Main, DO is a board-certified orthopedic sports medicine and arthroscopy specialist. His main interests are the arthroscopic treatment of shoulder instability, biceps pathology and rotator cuff injuries, as well as arthroscopic treatment of knee meniscus and ligament tears.



In addition, he enjoys complex shoulder and knee reconstruction including articular cartilage repair, partial and total joint replacements, and the use of cutting-edge technology such as the use of custom design implants for gender specific knee replacements, arthroscopic implants, biologic bone and cartilage transplants, and the latest materials and design for joint replacement.

Dr. Main utilizes high definition arthroscopic equipment which provides the most optimal visualization during outpatient knee and shoulder procedures. Dr. Main has worked with numerous high school, collegiate and professional athletes during his training and orthopedic career.

Midwest Bone and Joint Center now offers Exos Bracing. It is the world’s first dry heat, fully customizable, adjustable, reconformable, waterproof splinting, casting and bracing system. This revolutionary technology is designed to dramatically change the clinical practices for external musculoskeletal support and stabilization. We also offer FASTFORM Free-Form multifunctional splinting which delivers superior comfort and support from injury to recovery. The performance matches that of conventional plaster of Paris and fiberglass products, but yet surpasses these modalities in functionality, patient satisfaction and hygiene.
