      Dr. Swelstad is a compassionate, skilled surgeon. He performed major reconstructive surgery on our son who suffered severe facial trauma as the result of an ATV accident. Dr. Swelstad spent significant time with us explaining what was done, what to expect, and responding to our many questions. He has remained in touch with us since we've returned home to the East Coast and is continuing to monitor our son's progress even a month after surgery. We highly recommend Dr. Swelstad!
      Dr. Swelstad is one of the most caring, compassionate, doctors I have ever met. He made sure I was well informed about my options and ultimately my procedure beforehand, he has exceptional bedside manner and is excellent about following up afterwards. He truly cares about his patients and I would highly recommend him and his staff.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Swelstad's Care Philosophy

      My approach to treating patients is straightforward and simple: I want to give the best possible care with the best possible outcome. I have very high expectations and my reputation in the operating room is being a perfectionist and I?m proud of that. I love what I do and I want you to be happy with your results. I will be very honest with you and communicate what you can expect before, during and after surgery, or a procedure.
