Aaron J. Balgaard


As an orthopedic surgeon, my practice is focused on treating injuries and conditions of the hip, knee, and shoulder as well as fracture care. I am committed to providing evidence-based treatments for the best possible outcomes, and my surgical expertise includes total joint replacement of the hip and knee, rotator cuff repair, and arthroscopy of the knee and shoulder.

I consider it an honor to be practicing in the region where I was raised. I’m proud to be a member of this community, and I strive to provide the highest quality of orthopedic care to people throughout west-central Minnesota. When I am not seeing patients, I value time with my family and stay active through outdoor activities, like hunting, fishing, and basketball. I also enjoy woodworking and decoy carving.
