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.

Found Dr. Uggen on the channel 6 news special on hip replacement. I had been going to Ortho West in Council Bluffs Ia and wasn't happy w/my out come. Dr. Uggen did my surgery 6/16/-15 of last year. My surgery started at 8am and I was walking w/o pain at 3pm, the next day I went home. The only pain was the IV needles going in and the bandage on my leg coming off...He is AMAZING!!!

Dr Uggen is an excellent Orthopedic Dr and is very knowledgable and confident. He is skilled in the latest techniques and has many differing approaches to each patient's needs. He takes the time to explain any diagnoses with the patient and involves them heavily in the decision making process as to approach and treatment. He is a very committed and inspiring physician. I am very happy with his treatment.
