I grew up in a small town in central South Dakota where my father was a veterinarian and although I grew up admiring the work he did, I was not sure I wanted to follow in his footsteps. My childhood dream was to be a professional football player but after undergoing two knee surgeries before the age of 17, I realized that was not possible. I was intrigued with the objective and deliberate nature of orthopedic surgeons and how they could take a problem, solve it, and rehab the patient back to health in a relatively short period of time. I decided to enter medical school and orthopedic training with a goal of providing the same type of treatment for my patients.

Testimonials for Dr. McKenzie
I have been to Orthopedic Institute numerous times over the years and have had wonderful care and treatment with the entire staff. Dr. McKenzie lived up to this and his PA Dr. Lee were both great to work with.
Dr. McKenzie is a wonderful doctor. He has helped me so much with my arthritis problems. The doctor and his PA Dr. Lee always know me by name and are wonderful to their clients. I would definitely recommend Dr. McKenzie to anyone in need of orthopedic care.
Dr. McKenzie has been my orthopedic surgeon since having hip replacement surgery 9 years ago, and two more recent surgeries. Each time I have had excellent care, and Dr. McKenzie and/or his staff have answered any questions I’ve had. I’m very thankful to have him and his staff for my care and would highly recommend him to anyone needing hip, knee, or back surgery.
Matthew McKenzie is a no-nonsense, really likable and personable doctor who is very serious about his business, making sure that he gets the surgery done right and you are completely satisfied with the outcome. My results with hip surgery have been excellent! At 7 weeks after the replacement surgery I am able to run a bit and even jump!
Dr. McKenzie is an awesome doctor! I switched to him after doctoring elsewhere for 5 years & I am so glad I made the change!! He takes the time to talk to you, answer questions & explain everything! He did my hip replacement about 2 weeks ago & so far, so good!! I highly recommend him (& have already)!!
