Meet Benjamin Mueller, MD, PhD

Philosophy of Care

As a surgeon, it is my job to inform you, provide you with reasonable choices, and help guide you through the decision making process. There are no questions that patient's shouldn't ask. I believe in patient and family centered care. This means, treat the patient, not an image. Surgery is sometimes the answer, and sometimes there are better choices. 

I am a spine surgeon from Twin Cities Spine Center. Through a partnership with Northfield Hospital + Clinics, I am seeing patients at their Orthopedic Clinic in Northfield. If you are in need of spine surgery, I look forward to caring for you in Northfield. 

Personal Interests

When not at work, I enjoy time with my family, the outdoors, hockey and soccer.
