Gundersen Orthopedics expands to meet region-wide needs

Gundersen Health System makes it convenient for patients throughout the Tri-state Region to access orthopedic care close to home. With new clinicians and an ever-growing list of primary, outreach and telemedicine locations, patients can avoid making a special trip to La Crosse to receive specialized care.

Aaron Butler, MD, and Justin Mitchell, MD, are among the newest additions to Gundersen's highly skilled team of orthopedic specialists.

Dr. Butler is an orthopedic surgeon serving patients in Tomah and La Crosse. He treats all types of orthopedic conditions but enjoys a focus on total hip and knee replacements, shoulder arthroscopies including rotator cuff repair, and knee arthroscopy.

Dr. Mitchell is a sports medicine physician who focuses on complex injuries and reconstruction of the shoulder, hip and knee. He provides care from Gundersen Onalaska Sports Medicine as well as La Crosse, and is helping improve access to complex arthroscopic procedures.

"The medical needs of patients with orthopedic injuries or disorders can often be chronic and require ongoing care and appointments. It's our hope that by expanding our orthopedic team and bringing our specialists closer to patients in their hometown communities, we can better serve them and their families," states Gundersen orthopedic surgeon Edward Riley II, MD.

Whether your patients require therapy, oral medications, joint injections or surgical interventions, remind them Gundersen orthopedics offers a full range of treatment options—often locally. To make a referral, call Gundersen MedLink at (800) 336-5465.
