A new, state-of-the-art outpatient clinic to meet the needs of CRMC’s expanding orthopaedics and pain management services is expected to open on CRMC’s main campus this March. The new clinic will also provide space for a new spine surgeon who arrives this Fall and Rehabilitation will be moved nearby for patient convenience. The Minnesota Center for Orthopaedics (MCO), led by Erik Severson, M.D., has two new surgeons: Jonathan Herseth, M.D., who specializes in sports medicine and Susan Moen, M.D., specializing in hands, who joined the staff in the Fall of 2016.All MCO surgeons are Fellowship trained. Additional physicians and advanced practice providers will be needed in the future as orthopaedic procedures are projected to increase by over 400 percent in the next 12 to 15 years. CRMC opened its Pain Management Clinic in September 2016 when Fellowship trained Pain Specialist and Board-Certified Anesthesiologist Joshua Horowitz, D.O., joined its medical staff. As the new service line quickly flourished, CRMC added more staff and recruited another specialist, Dr. Dan Lonergan, to meet patient’s needs. The spine surgeon will begin practicing at CRMC in late October offering a needed new service to area residents.
