Dr. Aaron Burkhart, an orthopedic surgeon, has joined the Orthopedic Surgery Department at Essentia Health-Virginia Clinic in Virginia, Minnesota.

“I joined Essentia in Virginia because I believe in providing high quality surgical care and I found a team of people who take great pride in their hospital, clinic, and orthopedic program,” says Dr. Burkhart.

Dr. Burkhart earned a medical degree and completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at Northern Ontario School of Medicine in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He completed fellowships in arthroplasty and trauma at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario.
