Dr. Layne Jenson arrives in Omaha after several years of practicing medicine in San Antonio, Texas. Having graduated from Texas Tech University, School of Medicine with both an M.D. and a Master of Business Administration, Dr. Jenson specialized in orthopaedic surgery during his residency at Texas Tech University Health Science Center, Lubbock, Texas. He then held the Ryerson Fellowship in Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.
"I treat the full spectrum of pediatric orthopaedic problems, but I am especially interested in helping children with sports injuries, limb deformities and spinal deformity," noted Dr. Jenson. Being certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a fellow with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and a member of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, Dr. Jenson is well prepared to bring his expertise to the mission at Boys Town.
"In my specialty, life-changing care at Boys Town is all about restoring function," said Dr. Jenson. "Our patients have trouble doing what they want to do, sometimes because of injury, sometimes because of deformity or some other dysfunction. We have tools to correct those problems and restore their ability to move and play and live how they want to."
