Caitlin Chambers, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon - Sports Medicine


I am a sports medicine fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon. While my training afforded me the opportunity to care for elite collegiate and professional athletes, including the Chicago Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears, I recognize the equally important mission of maintaining an active lifestyle in the everyday patient as well. I work with my patients to develop a treatment plan that best addresses their goals through both conservative measures and with surgery when necessary. I am experienced in arthroscopic treatment of disorders of the hip, knee and shoulder. I am a team physician for the NWHL Minnesota Whitecaps and University of Minnesota athletics.
