Jon D. Norberg, M.D. Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon Fellowship Trained Hand, Wrist and Elbow Specialist

I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon fellowship trained in hand and upper extremity surgery. I practiced general orthopedic surgery with an emphasis on hand for several years before transitioning to an entirely hand, wrist and elbow practice. I have worked both as an employed and solo practice physician. I am a hard-working team player. I have an excellent rapport with patients and staff and get excellent clinical outcomes. My patient satisfaction scores were consistently among the highest in our department. I was the Lead Physician for the Department of Hand Surgery at Sanford Health in Fargo, ND and a clinical instructor for both the U of ND School of Medicine and for Sanford’s Orthopedic Surgery Residency until September 2021 when I decided to reenter private practice. I have now opened Advanced Hand and Upper Extremity Center in Maple Grove, MN and will begin seeing patients shortly. While I have enjoyed growing up and practicing in Fargo, I am very excited relocating to somewhere with more activities and the opportunity to grow my new practice.
