Larson is with Twin Cities Orthopedics, as are additional hires Dr. Chris Coetzee and Dr. Greg Lervick. With the addition of these three physicians, the Vikings followed a pattern of hiring specialists, Pelissero noted.
#Vikings also hiring Drs. Chris Coetzee and Greg Lervick. Theme: specialists. Larson hip/knee. Coetzee foot/ankle. Lervick shoulder/elbow.
Pelissero went on to explain that Minnesota’s previous contract with Tria Orthopedics has expired. It is not a total turnover of medical personnel, as Dr. Sheldon Burns and Dr. David Olson will stay with the team, but it’s certainly a new direction for the Vikings.
New docs are w/ Twin Cities Orthopedics. Drs. Joel Boyd/Gary Fetzer of Tria are out. Drs. Sheldon Burns/David Olson stay as team physicians.
In addition to Larson’s exceptional work as a hip surgeon, he also specializes in knee injuries, according to Lindsey Young of Vikings Territory. His world-class experience and familiarity with the franchise, after serving the team from 2007-2011, should make for a smooth transition from the old medical staff to the new one.
