Essentia Health Welcomes Dr. Ashley Nord

Dr. Ashley Nord, Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Ashley Nord, a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, has joined the Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Northern Orthopedics Clinic in Brainerd, Minnesota.

“I really enjoy helping patients through injury and finding a solution that will improve their quality of life,” says Dr. Nord.

Dr. Nord earned a medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners-Michigan State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the Mary S. Stern Hand Surgery Fellowship in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Although Dr. Nord has special training in hand surgery, she will see patients with any orthopedic surgery need. “Surgery is not always the answer for every situation,” says Dr. Nord. “I provide patients with the information they need to determine a course of action, and then we move toward a detailed plan for treatment and recovery.”

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Nord, call (218) 829-7812. To see her full profile, visit and click on “Find a Doctor or Provider.”
