Dr. Uggen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Uggen "Dr. Jon Uggen is a second-generation orthopaedic surgeon fellowship trained in Adult Reconstruction/Total Joint Surgery and the director of the total joints program at Fremont Health, Fremont NE. He has experience in the latest procedures including the less invasive/muscle sparing anterior approach for total hip replacements, unicondylar knee arthroplasty (partial knee replacement), and complex total joint revisions. In addition, he offers multiple orthopaedic services including sports medicine, arthroscopy of the shoulder and knee, trauma/fracture care, and other soft tissue procedures. His father, a retired orthopaedic surgeon, and mother, a retired registered nurse helped instill the philosophy of treating every patient as if they were a member of the family. His goal in joint replacement is to restore the quality of life of his patients by relieving pain and restoring function through joint replacement and other non-surgical treatment options. He believes a well-informed patient will approach a surgical procedure and postoperative experience with greater enthusiasm and less apprehension. In his free time, Dr. Uggen enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters. He also enjoys outdoor activities, hunting, water sports, kiteboarding, skiing, and traveling."

I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Uggen 4 days ago and it is amazing. Still have some soreness from the incision(operation), but very little to no pain in the hip. The caring and skill provided by Dr. Uggen and his staff is outstanding and I thank them all very much. Richard Boyer

Extremely pleased with Dr. Uggen's explanation of the procedure and answers to all questions. Staff are all pleasant and professional.. Would recommend him to anyone needing his area of expertise. Also happy with care at Methodist Hospital after the surgery and their follow up phone calls.
