General

Dr. Norberg sees patients in Edina and Plymouth. Click here for directions.

We perform surgery at the following locations:

Abbott Northwestern Hospital
Crosstown Surgery Center
WestHealth Same Day Surgery Center

We specialize in shoulder, elbow and arthroscopic surgeries.  Common surgeries include: shoulder, elbow and knee arthroscopy, rotator cuff repairs, biceps tendon repairs, labrum repairs of the shoulder, total shoulder replacement, reverse total shoulder replacement, total elbow replacement, and fracture surgeries of the shoulder, clavicle, and elbow.

We also specialize in ultrasound-guided injections in the clinic setting, including cortisone injections of the shoulder and hip, and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections of the elbow.

We can often schedule surgeries within two weeks.  Some surgeries are urgent, and we will do our best to fit these patients into our schedule.  Most surgeries are scheduled based on the patient’s preference.

All patients need to see their primary care provider during the 30 days prior to surgery for a pre-operative history and physical, in order to be cleared for surgery.

When you arrive, we will have you complete paperwork regarding your past medical history, and the problem you are being seen for that day.  You will come back to the exam room and meet one of Dr. Norberg’s team members, who will be with you throughout your visit.  X-rays may be ordered, which take about 5 minutes to complete.  Then Dr. Norberg will see you, perform an exam, and discuss the diagnosis and treatment options in detail.  If an injection is appropriate, it will be completed before you leave.
