Meet David Strothman, M.D.
Dr. Strothman’s approach: “Spinal disorders are complex and disabling. As your surgeon I will explain your diagnosis and treatment options, both operative and non-operative, in a way that you can understand thereby allowing you to make informed decisions. I am rewarded daily by improving the quality of life of patients receiving my care.”
Dr. Strothman’s education: Following his undergraduate studies at Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut, Dr. Strothman earned his medical degree at the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis. He then went on to complete his residency at the University of Minnesota’s Department of Orthopaedics, and later participated in the Orthopedic Spine Fellowship program at Twin Cities Spine Center.

Summit Orthopedics’ Spinecare program is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for the comprehensive expertise of our patient-centered care. Our back specialists diagnose spine problems and design custom treatment plans built on a conservative, nonsurgical approach. Most patients find relief through treatments including guided injections, specialized physical therapy, biofeedback, exercise, activity modification, and medication. When conservative care does not relieve symptoms, our highly skilled surgeons offer proven, evidence-based surgical options. Together with you, we will determine the right course of action.
