Orthopaedic trauma surgeons Drs. Andrew Schmidt and David Templeman were both included in Orthopedics This Week’s recent list of the Top 29 Orthopedic Traumatologists in the United States. This list was obtained through a telephone survey of thought leaders in the field. They were the only orthopaedic trauma surgeons from Minnesota to make the list.
“He is an all around traumatologist, but does especially good work around the shoulder and knee,” said one of those surveyed about Dr. Andrew Schmidt. “He has great leadership and organizational skills.”
About Dr. Templeman, a surveyor heard: “He has a good old fashioned way of training fellows so that they learn the importance of surgical planning.”
Dr. Schmidt is president-elect of the Orthopedic Trauma Association (OTA) and Dr. Templeman is a past president of the OTA. Both are also professors of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Minnesota.
Hennepin County Medical Center offers a full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient orthopaedic services, where ongoing, nationally recognized orthopaedic research is conducted at the Excelen Center for Bone and Joint Research and Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation.
