Orthopedic program

Complete orthopedic care and service

If your life has been derailed by an orthopedic problem, River Falls Area Hospital's seamless system of care can put you back on track.

Allina Health orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists are here to help you. In addition, our hospital partners with Twin Cities Orthopedics, a group of highly experienced orthopedic surgeons who see patients most weekdays in River Falls.

Patients needing surgery can have their procedure at River Falls Area Hospital followed by inpatient rehabilitation and the opportunity to participate in the hospital's swing bed program.

In addition to hip, knee and shoulder replacement, procedures performed at River Falls Area Hospital include:

  • advanced arthroscopy to diagnose and treat a variety of orthopedic conditions, including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, rotator cuff tears, labral tears, meniscus tears, shoulder instability and shoulder arthritis
  • foot and ankle surgery.

After leaving the hospital, orthopedic patients complete their rehab at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute at River Falls or the Courage Kenny Sports & Physical Therapy Center at the Ellsworth Medical Clinic.
