The experts at Allina Health have you covered, whatever your orthopedic need.
Expert care for acute or sports-related injuries
An acute injury is one that occurs suddenly, and usually during an activity of some kind. If you experience a fracture, sprain or tear, an Allina Health sports medicine provider can help.
You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from seeing a sports medicine provider. Allina Health sports medicine specialists can help just about anyone, no matter how your injury happened. We use the latest technologies to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate musculoskeletal conditions in athletes of all abilities. Our orthopedic specialists pioneer and implement innovative treatments and therapies that help you get better, faster.
Help for chronic pain
Chronic discomfort can be the result of an old injury, overuse or misuse of a joint, arthritis or simple aging. Let us help you begin living your life again with a conservative (non-surgical) treatment plan, minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, joint revision surgery or joint replacement.
