David Beard, MD

Orthopedic Surgery

Maple Grove

I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon with sub-specialty certification in all aspects of hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and upper extremity patient care and surgery. The vast majority of my practice involves taking care of individuals with hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and upper extremity problems. I work with all types of patients: young/old, and active/inactive to name a few. I will work with you to feel better and improve your function. We will focus on non-operative options, and proceed with surgery if we decide that it is an option. In addition, I also care for individuals with orthopedic problems while on call. I enjoy all aspects of orthopedic surgery and working with patients to improve their health.
