Always here for you
Patients at Children’s Minnesota have access to some of the best pediatric orthopedic specialists with 24/7 orthopedic coverage in our emergency/trauma departments through a collaboration with Gillette Children’s Specialty Health Care. We also have dedicated pediatric orthopedic physicians on campus weekdays for inpatient consultations as well as outpatient follow-up care for general orthopedic concerns. The orthopedics team includes:
- Orthopedic physicians and surgeons, who focus on the musculoskeletal system—including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. They can diagnose injuries and disorders; provide treatment through surgery, exercise, medication, etc.; and come up with a plan for rehabilitation
- Physician assistants, medical professionals who conduct exams, order and interpret tests, and assist in surgery, among many other duties
Many of our physicians specialize in a certain area of orthopedics. Amy Moeller, MD, is our fellowship-trained, board-certified hand surgery specialist. She cares for patients from infancy to age 18 with acute chronic finger and hand conditions as well as congenital developmental hand deformity. Jamie Engels, MD, is fellowship trained in both sports medicine and pediatric orthopedics, and specializes in the evaluation and management of pediatric sports-related injuries.
The orthopedics program is led by:
Libby Weber, MD
