Orthopedic surgery

Whether it’s mending a tear, fixing a fracture or replacing a worn-out joint, the orthopedic surgery specialists at Allina Health have the capabilities to get you moving again.

Bones and muscles form the framework of your body, and injury or wear to this complex system is commonplace. Your doctor will sometimes advise conservative, or non-surgical, therapies to treat your condition. Other times, you and your doctor may decide that orthopedic surgery is the best option to get you back to your best health.

We know you don’t take surgery lightly and neither do we. Our orthopedic surgeons, care teams and hospital staff are highly trained and observe the highest quality standards in health care. They use—and often pioneer—the latest orthopedic technologies and techniques. 

Our orthopedic surgery specialists have what it takes to get you moving again.

What it is

Your musculoskeletal framework is made up of bones, muscles, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, joints and other connective tissue. An orthopedic surgeon is a doctor who uses non-surgical, surgical and physical means to preserve and restore the musculoskeletal framework.

Good for treating

You and your doctor may choose orthopedic surgery to treat a number of conditions, including:

  • broken bones due to trauma
  • sports injuries, such as a sprain or torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • overuse injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • joint pain, often from arthritis.

What to expect

Your orthopedic doctor and his or her team will discuss your surgery with you in detail. They’ll review how to prepare for surgery, what to expect in the hospital or surgery center, and help you plan for recovery at home. Our full spectrum of services and compassionate caregivers will support you every step of the way.

Good to know

Allina Health clinics, hospitals and surgery centers measure, record and compile the results or outcomes of orthopedic surgeries and treatments. This allows us to continually assess the effectiveness of treatment and has led to advancements in the field of orthopedic care.
