Here to Provide a Better Move for Motion

Here at Orthopaedic Associates, we understand that the health and safety of those you love and care about most is always at the heart of your decision making. Our team also wholly values a family focused mindset, and not only want patients to take our word for it, but we also want every patient to see and feel us put this value into action - building confidence that you are in the best hands. Because your family needs the best in order to continue doing what they love.

Due to this, we are taking steps every day to ensure we are a better move for motion - for you, for your spouse, for your children, for your parents, and for everyone else you love. Here are just a few ways we are proud to continually exceed your expectations, helping you to live in motion: 

Prompt Scheduling 
When someone you care about is in pain, even a timely response back from your care team can feel like an eternity. Communication is one of our top priorities, making sure you hear back from a member of our team with a scheduled appointment within 24 hours. This allows the journey to recovery to start faster. We will also be providing 24/7 self scheduling soon! Stay tuned for more updates on that.


Surgeon Care from the very Start 
We believe that better care starts with the best. That is why patients at Orthopaedic Associates receive expert care as soon as they walk through our doors, being able to see a surgeon from their very first visit. From there we decide the best course of action - in order to get you and your family back to doing what you love. 


No Referral Necessary
The road to recovery should be easy to begin, which is why no referral is needed for an appointment with one of our surgeons. Simply fill out our contact form located at https://www.oaduluth.com/contact.php, or call the office at (218) 722-5513 to set up an appointment! 

Experienced Expert Surgeons and Team
Setting the standard in orthopaedic care, our team is the best in the region and are dedicated to working with each individual patient - getting them back to a full range of living. Everyone in our offices work together. Surgeons, physician assistants, our therapy teams, athletic trainers, and staff strive to create the best possible experience and outcomes for each and every patient. 


On-Site Physical and Occupational Therapy
Our compassionate physical and occupational therapists work alongside our surgeons to provide a team approach to patient care - allowing us to provide customized treatments plans and get you back to normal tasks and hobbies faster. Our therapists have extensive education in the areas of orthopedics, manual therapy, sports rehab, and injury prevention - all cultivating the best possible recovery. 

Locations Across the Region 
We are proud to offer a wide range of orthopaedic care, physical and occupational therapy, and on-site MRI and X-ray imaging services at our main office in Duluth. However, we also offer various locations throughout the area for the convenience of our patients.

We have a clinic in Hibbing, MN and a therapy clinic in Hermantown, as well as the ability to offer surgical procedures at facilities in Duluth, Grand Rapids, Moose Lake, Hibbing, Grand Rapids, International Falls, and Grantsburg, WI. 

With many visits not requiring surgery, our physicians are also able to regularly see patients at outreach clinics throughout the region including Virginia, Mt. Iron, Two Harbors, Sandstone, and Ely. Offering hometown care is important to us, because we know it is important to those we help every day. 

By providing these opportunities for your healthcare, Orthopaedic Associate allows you to take the lead on making decisions for those you love and care about most - so that you can continue to make memories, stay active, and continue your passions. If you are ready to make a better move for motion, schedule an appointment!
