Practice Overview

Andrew F. Arthur, MD, grew up in Minnetonka, MN and graduated cum laude from The Blake School.  He then attended Princeton University in Princeton, NJ graduating with a baccalaureate degree in molecular biology.  While at Princeton, Dr. Arthur earned a spot on the men's basketball team as a "walk-on," where he played under the leadership of legendary basketball coach Pete Carril.  

Dr. Arthur is a board certified orthopedic surgeon with a subspecialty certification in Sports Medicine.  He is committed to treating athletes of all ages while getting them back doing the activities they know and love.  His surgical interests focus on shoulders, knees, and hips, with specific expertise in arthroscopy of the knee and shoulder.  Dr. Arthur is a dedicated expert in athletic injuries to the knee and routinely treats ligament injuries of the knee, including ACL injuries. He is also skilled in treating and repairing meniscus and cartilage tears, including specialized treatments, in select patients, for paste graft cartilage regeneration and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. Dr. Arthur also has specialized training in minimally invasive total joint replacement, including Anterior Approach Hip Replacement, minimally invasive knee and shoulder replacement, and the TCO Excel Joint Replacement Program.  He also routinely treats traumatic injuries and fractures as well as injuries related to arthritis and osteoporosis.

Dr. Arthur volunteers his time as a team physician for both Blake and Osseo High Schools, and takes care of many young athletes while getting them back to competition. He is an athlete and true outdoor enthusiast. He enjoys golf, tennis, biking, skiing, hiking, and canoeing. A backcountry canoe/hiking trip with family and friends has become an annual summer tradition.

His wife, Christie Heikes, MD is also an orthopedic surgeon at Twin Cities Orthopedics. Their children (boy/girl twins) keep them both out of trouble when they are not busy “fixing bones”, as their kids like to say.  Some of his many philanthropic goals are related to sports and athletics, education, the environment, and equality in health and wellness.
