Greetings! I'm Dr. Aaron Newton, and I'm a specialty trained Orthopedic shoulder and knee surgeon. My journey in this field began with a passion for sports, outdoor activities, and a commitment to health and fitness. What sets me apart is not just my medical expertise, but my personal connection to the world of sports injuries.
Having experienced my own knee and shoulder injuries, I understand firsthand the impact they can have on your life. These personal challenges became the driving force behind my career path in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery.
My training journey led me across the heartland of the Midwest, encompassing Ohio, Michigan, and Minnesota. Along the way, I had the incredible opportunity to work with athletes at every level, from the Minnesota Twins to the University of Minnesota football team. More recently, I've proudly served our local sports community, including the Idaho Spuds baseball team.
My singular focus is to help you regain your desired activity level, utilizing all available means. I believe in starting with conservative care, employing targeted stretching and strengthening exercises, sometimes complemented by medications and injections. This approach proves highly effective when guided by the right expertise.
When conservative treatments reach their limits, I turn to advanced imaging studies such as ultrasounds, CT scans, or MRIs to precisely define the injury. Patient education is paramount to me. I ensure my patients fully understand their condition by reviewing imaging findings and discussing treatment options, ensuring that all questions are answered.
Recovery and rehabilitation are often underestimated aspects of the healing process. Recognizing this, I actively collaborate with local physical therapists, athletic trainers, and other sports medicine providers to provide a comprehensive team approach to recovery. I firmly believe that successful outcomes result from the synergy of skilled surgery and unwavering commitment to the rehabilitation process.
Whether you've recently encountered an injury or you're living with persistent knee or shoulder discomfort, I welcome the opportunity to conduct a thorough evaluation and present you with tailored treatment options to help you return to the activities you cherish. Your journey to recovery starts here, and I'm dedicated to supporting you every step of the way.
Thank you for visiting my website, and I look forward to assisting you on your path in your pursuit of optimal health and the activities you love.
Dr. Aaron Newton
