Orthopedics: A Joint Effort

Total care for total joint replacement. Beginning with our primary care specialists, we can evaluate your care needs. And if your care is transferred to our orthopedic specialists, you’ll have attentive care, from pre-op to post-op—and beyond, with your goals leading the way. Our surgeons stay on the cutting edge of techniques and procedures, and our team is specifically trained for your needs. We’re ready to go to work for you, no bones about it.

The North Memorial Health Advantage

  • We offer a full spectrum of bone and joint care, from acute episodes that require assistance at our urgent care or Urgency Centers, including our orthopedic urgency care in Minnetonka.
  • If you aren’t sure if you require an orthopedic specialist, our primary care clinics are a good place to start. If we determine you need a specialist, we will transition your care to one of our partnered specialists around the Twin Cities.
  • We consistently receive high customer satisfaction ratings for our joint replacement care, as well as a five-star rating from Minnesota Hospital Association.
  • Our surgeons have been at the forefront of performing anterior approach total hip replacement surgery in Minnesota, and have performed thousands of anterior hip surgeries. This procedure has shown to have a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery, less pain, and significantly fewer discharges to an extended care facility.
  • We also perform MRI/CT assisted total knee replacement and reverse total shoulder surgeries.
  • We have large private rooms and on-site physical therapy services.
  • Our program walks with you from beginning to end: We start with a preoperative class and guidebook of care, and conclude at our joint replacement reunion breakfast four to five months after surgery.
  • You have one dedicated contact person, start to finish: A care coordinator who teaches the preoperative class, checks on you in the hospital, oversees the reunion breakfast, and is your telephone contact.
