Dr. Arthur volunteers his time as a team physician for Osseo High School and cares for many young athletes while getting them back to competition. He is an athlete and true outdoor enthusiast. He enjoys golf, tennis, biking, skiing, hiking and canoeing. A backcountry canoe trip with family and friends into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area or Quetico Provincial Park has become an annual summer tradition.
His wife, Christie Heikes, MD is also an orthopedic surgeon at Twin Cities Orthopedics. Their twins keep them both out of trouble when they are not busy “fixing bones”, as their kids like to say.
