To Our
Wonderful
Patients

I formed the Northern Orthopedics practice back in 1975. Today, you simply won’t find another team with the same talent and passion for Orthopedics and your health. Every surgeon is an expert, which means you can count on Northern Orthopedics for everything from routine therapy and day surgery to total joint replacement. I retired recently and enjoy spending my time relaxing with family and friends. But because I’m so fond of the practice and patients we serve, I continue to stay involved with Northern Orthopedics – and you.  Because it’s our passion.

God Bless!
