Orthopedics Close to Home
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 Astera Health for comprehensive care, from evaluation to rehabilitation.

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.
You won’t have to go through this experience alone. When you come to Astera 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.
500th Joint Replacement: Carla’s story
