About the Foundation


Established in 2007 by members of the Twin Cities Orthopedics practice, the Foundation is developing and investing in key activities to improve the quality of life for those affected by bone, joint and muscle injuries and disorders.


Dear Supporters and Friends:

The Twin Cities Orthopedics Foundation finished its 12th year of service in 2018 and saw significant growth in its number of donors. Thanks to generous individual donors, gracious corporate support, and significant hard work by many volunteers, the TCO Foundation is doing more good work and supporting more volunteer, research and community efforts than ever before.

Our mission is to advance musculoskeletal health through community service, orthopedic research, education and training, and this year’s annual report documents and highlights those efforts completed in 2018. Our entire Board of Directors and staff are volunteers, which has allowed the foundation to directly support more of its goals, with minimal overhead expense (special thanks go to our volunteer board members.) Additionally, we were pleased to welcome Peter Sanders, MD, to the board.

As you read the 2018 Annual Report, I think you will be pleased, impressed and proud of the work being done and supported by the TCO Foundation. The Board of Directors is always open to new ideas and suggestions on how best to support the mission going forward. Please contact me or any of our board members directly with your input.

We are excited to share this year’s annual report with you. In early 2019, we plan to launch our new and updated website, allowing for online donations. We look forward to the future good works of the foundation, and thank you for your ongoing support.

We can do more together.

Thank you,

David Gesensway
