Tri Orthopedics

Your body was made to move. Bones, joints, ligaments and muscles – all of these work in tandem to keep you mobile, whether climbing stairs, playing sports, taking a walk, playing with the grandkids, or kneeling to tend your garden.

But sometimes, these parts don’t work as they should, causing you pain and limited movement. That’s when our orthopedics team steps in.

Full range of services
Trust the orthopedics team at Tri-County Health Care for comprehensive care, from evaluation to rehabilitation. Our skilled surgeons, providers, and therapists deliver a full range of services to help you relieve pain, regain mobility and recover safely. With full-time orthopedic surgeon Ben Robertson, M.D., and visiting orthopedic surgeon Joel Shobe, M.D., we offer patients the flexibility and professional care they need without the burden of long-distance travel.

  • Total joint replacements (knee, hip, shoulder)

  • Bunion and hammertoe corrections
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • ACL reconstruction
  • Arthroscopy procedures (knee and shoulder)
  • Fracture care – casting or surgical repair (hand, wrist, arm, toes, foot, ankle, clavicle)
  • Osteoarthritis care
  • Treatment of repetitive use and sports-related injuries
  • Physical Therapy

Total joints
Strong, proven, and safe, total joint replacements are a reliable option for those with damaged and arthritic joints when physical therapy, medication or life modifications don’t help. Dr. Robertson offers these procedures right in Wadena, with special training in direct anterior hip, Oxford knee and reverse total shoulder replacements.

Total joint procedures replace a damaged or arthritic joint with a prosthetic device designed to move and function like that of a healthy joint. They reduce pain, improve mobility and restore quality of life.

Joint camp
You won’t have to go through this experience alone. When you come to Tri-County Orthopedics for a joint replacement, you’ll join a group of other patients who are also awaiting their own procedure. This group will become a safe place where you can go for motivation, encouragement and fun as you work toward recovery together.

If you have had a joint replacement and are currently going through the program, you can access the joint guidebooks here:
