Meet Dr. Hans Bengtson

Philosophy of Care

As an athlete himself, Hans experienced first-hand what it is like to be injured and unable to play.

“I grew up playing anything with a ball. I was injured in 8th grade and my experience with my orthopedic surgeon is what drove me to become an orthopedic surgeon. I like to help people recover and get back to playing and life.”

Personal Interests

I returned to live in the town where I grew up, Northfield, MN. My wife and I have 2 children. I enjoy reading, being outdoors; playing football, tennis, golf, table tennis, yard games and any other competitive endeavor.
