Dr. William Uffmann, an orthopedic surgeon, has joined the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Department at Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic in Duluth, Minnesota.

“I joined Essentia Health Orthopedics not only for it’s remarkable reputation in patient care, but also because of the outstanding team environment,” says Dr. Uffmann.

Dr. Uffmann earned a medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. He completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Utah Orthopedic Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, and a fellowship in sports medicine at Kerlan Jobe Orthopedics in Los Angeles, California.

“I chose orthopedics because I love seeing the dramatic impact you can have on a patient’s life,” explains Dr. Uffmann. “It is extremely rewarding to help a patient achieve their personal functional goals whether that be returning to elite athletics after an injury or simply returning to pain free activity.”
