Orthopedic Surgery

Benefit from personalized care and the latest techniques and technology when you choose Essentia Health for orthopedic surgery. At our facilities, you can access a wide range of treatments from a team of skilled surgeons.

What’s an Orthopedic Surgeon?

An orthopedic surgeon has been educated and trained in the diagnosis and pre-surgical, surgical, and post-surgical treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. This includes bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and tendons.

Specialists & Subspecialists

While all orthopedic surgeons are trained in the musculoskeletal system, Essentia has several orthopedic surgery subspecialists who have additional training related to specific parts of the body. We also have surgical subspecialists in trauma, sports medicine, and orthopedic oncology.

Do I Need Surgery?

Your doctor may recommend orthopedic surgery if non-surgical treatments—like lifestyle changes, physical therapy, or medications—don’t effectively control your symptoms. Your care team will explain your treatment options and help you choose the procedure that’s best for you.

Types of Orthopedic Surgery

The type of procedure your doctor recommends depends on your condition. Rely on our specialists and subspecialists for treatments like:

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Whenever possible, your surgeon uses techniques that are less invasive than traditional surgery. This means you may have a faster recovery with less pain, smaller scars, and a lower risk of complications.

Postoperative Care

Your Essentia care team will help you recover after orthopedic surgery. Your recovery plan may include Rehabilitation services, such as physical and occupational therapy.

Hip Impingement & Hip Arthroscopy

Hip impingement, which happens when an extra piece of bone is in your hip joint, can cause pain. Learn what you can do to help your sore hip.
