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:

I am pleased to report that the Twin Cities Orthopedics Foundation is growing and gaining significant momentum. Thanks to generous individual donors like you, gracious corporate support, and significant hard work by many volunteers, the Foundation is doing more good work and supporting more volunteer, research, and community efforts than ever.

Our mission is to advance musculoskeletal health through community service, orthopedic research, education and training. Our entire Board and staff are volunteers, which has allowed the Foundation to directly support more of its goals than ever before, with minimal overhead expense. Special thanks go to our volunteer Board members.

Our goals for the future are also expanding. With your support, we hope to be able to fund more community partners that share similar goals and are doing great work; fund more research; mentor more high school students; grant more scholarships; provide more free concussion tests to high school athletes; encourage more medical volunteerism; support more international volunteer orthopedic service trips and continue our International Orthopedic Visiting Scholar Program.

We are excited about the future good works of the Foundation, and we thank you for your ongoing support. We can do more together.

David Gesensway
