Des Moines Orthopaedic Surgeons, P.C.

Our History

Our humble beginnings started with a conversation between a doctor and a 12 year-old patient in the late 1930’s. Dr. Douglas Gibson, the first orthopedist in Des Moines, asked John Kelly what he wanted to be when he grew up.  After hearing that John wanted to be a doctor, Dr. Gibson suggested he study orthopedics and join him in practice when he completed his training. In 1955, John Kelley, M.D. joined Dr. Gibson and together they founded Des Moines Orthopaedic Surgeons (DMOS).
