Our Mission

We provide our patients with complete musculoskeletal health care. It’s our goal to improve the quality, cost, and access of care for our patients and their families.

Our History

St. Cloud Orthopedic Associates, Ltd. was founded in 1955 by Dr. Edward LaFond, who brought the orthopedic specialty to Central Minnesota.

In 1977, we opened our Physical Therapy department to care for musculoskeletal injuries. Six years later, the Orthopedic Sports Center was opened to provide physical and sports therapy and athletic training services throughout Minnesota. We added the High Energy Advanced Training (H°E°A°T°) Program in 1999 to help athletes excel in their physical performance.

We look forward to developing an open, honest, and trusting relationship with you. Come and see why Central Minnesota makes us their first choice for orthopedic care.
