About Me

Dr. Peter Daly’s Approach to Care

“I understand the concern of athletes to get back to their sport. And I work in combination with our therapists to get them fully active.”

Dr. Peter Daly is an orthopedic surgeon, specializing in knee, shoulder, hip, sports medicine, arthritis, and joint preservation and restoration in Minneapolis St. Paul metro area. Because shoulder arthritis has prompted him to adjust his own activities, he brings personal perspective as well as medical expertise to his patients who are dealing with the same kinds of issues. Dr. Daly’s dedication to community health extends beyond his immediate community; he was recently recognized with the Dr. Thomas A. Dooley Award by his alma mater, the University of Notre Dame, for his volunteer medical service with One World Surgery in Honduras and his global commitment to addressing disparities in medical and surgical care for the poor.

Dr. Daly is a frequent recipient of the Top Doctor designation in Mpls./St.Paul Magazine. He serves as Team Physician for Concordia University in St. Paul, MN.  Dr. Daly also served as Summit Orthopedics Medical Director of Surgical Services for many years, as a member of the board, and is a long-standing leader in the practice.
