Summit Expands To Serve Patients With A New Lakeville Location
Summit Orthopedics is expanding its south metro footprint to the city of Lakeville in early 2022.
Growing Orthopedic Provider Expanding into South Suburb
Summit is in the planning and development stages to open another state-of-the-art orthopedic care clinic, this time in the city of Lakeville.
The undeveloped site just off 1-35 and Kenwood Trail was strategically chosen by Summit’s leadership team with help from Excelsior Advisory, a local real estate consulting firm. A commercial boom in recent years has been driving residential growth in the area, which has created a demand for specialty care clinics to support the rapidly expanding community.
“Developed to meet the orthopedic needs of the growing south metro community,” says Dr. Robert Anderson, orthopedic hand surgeon and president of Summit Orthopedics, “our new Lakeville location will deliver convenient care that is personal by design. No matter what your goals are for a healthier, more active lifestyle, we are here to support you.”
The 25,000-square-foot building will offer patients advanced subspecialty orthopedic, sports, and spine care, as well as walk-in orthopedic urgent care through the OrthoQUICK clinic, open seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Additionally, it will be home to a procedure suite for therapeutic joint injections, regenerative medicine, imaging services (MRI/X-ray), and physical and hand therapy.
Plans for this new healthcare facility are yet to be set in stone, but a few key members have been chosen for the project team. Summit Orthopedics is the sole tenant, Pope Architects is heading architectural design, and MSP Commercial has signed on as developer, owner, and property manager. Along with Excelsior Advisory, these companies have a successful history with Summit Orthopedics. Recent projects include Landmark Surgery Center in Woodbury in 2019 and the nearly 70,000-squarefoot ambulatory surgery center and clinic in Eagan in 2017.
Base building construction is scheduled to start in just a few months, mid to late spring 2021. Summit Orthopedics is expecting to treat their first patients in the new Lakeville clinic in January of 2022.

High-heeled shoes are beautiful. They’re fashionable. They can be formal or fun. And if you wear them often, they can really damage your feet. Not only in a “my feet are sore” kind of way, but in a more permanent way as well. If you’re asking yourself if high heels are really that bad for your feet, the answer is an unequivocal yes.
Foot drop, or drop foot as it’s also called, is pretty much what it sounds like. When you take a step, your foot falls or slaps against the ground. To avoid tripping, people with foot drop often lift their legs higher in the air before taking a step, creating a march-type gait. Others drag their feet, because they have difficulty picking them up between steps.
