Biography :

Dr LaPrade is recognized for his treatment of high-level athletes. He has spent the last 14 years treating and taking care of the University of Minnesota Hockey and Baseball teams. Dr LaPrade was the team physician for the University of Minnesota Men's ice hockey team (National Champions in 2002 and 2003) and the men's baseball team during that same time. Selected as "one of the Best Doctors in America"​ and often referred to as a "doctor's doctor"​ he has special skills and expertise in treating intricate knee injuries and previously failed surgeries.

Dr LaPrade’s passion for excellence in the field of orthopaedic has led to ongoing, dynamic research into the study of knee injuries, which has led to improved diagnostic tests, surgical techniques and patient outcomes. To date, Dr LaPrade has published 315 peer-reviewed studies. In 2010, Dr LaPrade was recruited and appointed to be the and Co-Director of the Sports Medicine Fellowship Program at the Steadman Philippon Research Institute. In 2012, he was recruited and appointed to be the Deputy Director of the Sports Medicine Fellowship Program and the Director of the International Research Scholar Program for the Steadman Philippon Research Institute. He currently practices at Twin Cities Orthopedics in Edina and Eagan, MN. He consistently continues to identify the anatomy and biomechanics of specific problems associated with the knee and has developed anatomic reconstructions and new surgeries for these problems based upon his research.

Dr LaPrade completed medical school at the University of Illinois and his residency at Michigan State University. He also completed a Sports Medicine Fellowship at The Hughston Clinic in Columbus, Georgia. In 2003, Dr LaPrade received a PhD from the University of Oslo in Norway for his work on The Anatomy and Diagnosis of Posterolateral Knee Injuries.
