Making an Appointment

Call 320-484-4400 for an appointment to evaluate whether you are a good candidate for joint replacement. They can be made with an orthopedic specialist, with or without a referral from your primary care physician. Your first visit will begin with a personal interview and physical examination. This may be followed by diagnostic blood tests, X-rays, or other tests.
