Dr. Loddengaard's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Loddengaard "Every one of my patients can be confident that the extensive education and experience I bring can help them with their particular spine and joint problems. It's only after I've had a chance to thoroughly evaluate a patient that I'll recommend a treatment program. It may involve injections, physical therapy, referrals, or surgery. The most important part is that the patient feels comfortable with it. Most of my patients don't need surgery, but for those that do, I'm often able to use the most minimally invasive, state-of-the-art surgical techniques. The result for patients is decreased pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recoveries than the older, more "open" procedures. I became a doctor because it's wonderful to be able to fix things that are wrong with people—so they can get better! I love solving problems, and over the years I've had a chance to see thousands of patients through chronic pain and injuries, and on to healing. The most gratifying part is watching them go back to living their lives more fully than before."

I took that skill set through medical school and it still serves my patients today, because it helps me bring a fresh perspective to every patient's problem. In each case, I get to know my patients' health histories and their needs and goals for treatment and healing. We're a team, and I want them to know they can trust me to treat them as individuals."
