Our specialists treat conditions affecting ankles, feet, hands, hips, knees, shoulders, elbows and spine, as well as arthritis, scoliosis, and musculoskeletal tumors, as well as an extensive sports medicine practice.

With a reputation for accurate, right-the-first-time diagnoses and complete treatment options, our orthopedics specialty team is highly trained and experienced. For example, some of our orthopedic providers, including physical and occupational therapists, are hand specialists. That means effective, tailored care for your specific need right from the start.

From ankle sprains and bone fractures to the most complex spine, hip, knee, hand, or bone cancer care needs, we provide you the same high-quality care that we give University of Minnesota Gopher athletes. Whether your need is routine or complex, we use the latest research and innovations to treat you with the best fit solution.

University of Minnesota Medical Center, where our orthopedic surgeons operate, has earned Blue Distinction Centers+ for Knee and Hip Surgery and Blue Distinction Centers+ for Spine Surgery. These designations recognize hospitals for their expertise and efficiency in delivering specialty care, meaning you benefit from higher quality care at a lower cost. US News & World Report has also designated University of Minnesota Medical Center as a high performing hospital for orthopedics.

Our orthopedic surgeons are nationally and internationally known for their expertise in fields such as sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, family medicine, and rheumatology (joint, soft tissue, and autoimmune issues). They are committed to providing you with orthopedic care that combines excellence, service and compassion with innovative research and personalized patient education.

The specialists at M Health Fairview Sports Medicine Clinics include team physicians, certified athletic trainers and physical therapists. We know sports injuries come in all shapes and sizes and we are experts in the full range of chronic and acute problems related to living an active lifestyle. We specialize in treating athletes of any caliber and returning them to the game as quickly and safely as possible. Our physicians serve as team physicians for the Minnesota Wild, the Minnesota Vikings, University of Minnesota Athletics, and the Minnesota State High School League. All are experts with additional certified qualifications in sports medicine.

Conditions & Treatments

  • Achilles Tendonitis

    M Health Fairview is committed to treating Achilles Tendonitis, and all health issues that arise in our lives, with personalized, breakthrough care.

  • ACL Reconstruction

    Because a torn ACL cannot simply be sewn back together, physicians must reconstruct the ligament surgically. They will remove the torn ligament, replace it with new, healthy tissue, and attach it to the bone with screws or other devices.

  • ACL Tear

    M Health Fairview is committed to treating ACL Tear, and all health issues that arise in our lives, with personalized, breakthrough care.

  • Arthritis

    There are two main categories of arthritis: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage wears away over time. Rheumatoid is an autoimmune disorder that affects the lining of the joints.

  • Joint Replacement (Arthroplasty)

    Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the function of a joint. When there is a loss of the cartilage or cushion in a joint, often from arthiritis, arthroplasty may be prescribed. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones or an artificial joint may be recommended.

  • Arthroscopic Surgery

    Arthroscopy is a frequently used procedure by orthopedic surgeons to examine, diagnose, and treat disorders inside a joint. Arthroscopic surgery is an option for a number of medical conditions, including: achilles tendonitis, arthritis, bone fracture, heel spur, herniated disc, and more.

  • Articular Cartilage Restoration

    M Health Fairview offers Articular Cartilage Restoration, and we're committed to providing you with personalized, breakthrough care.
