Essentia Health Welcomes Physician Assistant Lisa Sand

Lisa Sand, Orthopedic Surgery

Physician Assistant Lisa Sand has joined the Orthopedic Surgery Department at Essentia Health - St. Joseph’s Northern Orthopedics Clinic in Brainerd, Minnesota.  

“I was drawn to practice at Essentia Health because of the focus on patient-centered care and the team approach to practicing medicine,” says Sand. “I know the Brainerd Lakes area will be a great fit for me.”

Sand earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from A.T. Still University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Mesa, Arizona. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

“I love the variety in orthopedic surgery,” says Sand. “While some days you’ll find me in the operating room working with the surgeons, others are spent in the clinic building relationships with patients and their families, and I really enjoy both settings.”
