Recognition, new technology is coming to Orthopedics at UnityPoint | News, Sports, Work

I am excited to share the incredible recognition, new medical technology and quality of care offered at UnityPoint Clinic Orthopedics – Fort Dodge. Since expanding our orthopedic services in partnership with CNOS, we have received national recognition for orthopedic care and acquired the Robotic Surgical Assistant (ROSA). We do all of this while offering same day appointments with our highly qualified providers. Patients don’t have to travel for orthopedic care, they can receive state-of-the-art care right here in Fort Dodge.

Upcoming Bone and Joint Q&A Workshops

Session Dates:

Tuesday, November 8 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m

Thursday, December 15 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m

UnityPoint Health – Trinity Regional Medical Center – Conference Center 2

802 Kenyon Road, Main Entrance

Fort Dodge, IA 50501

If you or a loved one is experiencing hip, knee or shoulder pain, join UnityPoint Clinic Orthopedics for one of our Q&A seminars. Orthopedic providers and physical therapists will have a large group discussion about the bone and joint problems and review the surgical and non-surgical treatment options available to the individual.

DNV certified center for hip and knee replacement

Trinity Regional Medical Center is the first and only hospital in Iowa to be recognized as a DNV Certified Hip and Knee Replacement Center, which validates the hospital’s excellence across the spectrum of hip and knee replacement care, from diagnosis to treatment, rehabilitation, education and outcomes.

Certification of the DNV Hip and Knee Replacement Program, based on standards established by and taking into account the guidelines of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, recognizes the program’s excellence in patient care and outcomes. Achieving certification validates all the efforts we have put into this program to ensure the health and safety of our patients.


We have completed five knee replacements using ROSA, Zimmer Biomet’s new robotic surgical assistant, and orthopedic providers are currently being trained to use ROSA for hip replacement.

ROSA is designed to help surgeons tailor the placement of hip or knee implants specifically for each patient. ROSA collects data before and during surgery related to the patient’s unique anatomy. This data informs the surgeon what may affect the fit of the implant. Using this data to make more informed decisions, the surgeon can plan and perform a personalized operation based on the individual needs of the patient. Thanks to the precise placement of the implant, some patients can go home on the day of surgery.

Same day appointments with highly qualified providers

We are extremely proud to offer affordable orthopedic care. UnityPoint Clinic Orthopedics can schedule same-day appointments so patients don’t have to wait months in pain to see a provider. They can meet with our providers and learn about their non-surgical and surgical treatment options the same day they develop symptoms.

UnityPoint Clinic Orthopedics – Fort Dodge is comprised of fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Prashant Anand and Dr. Elijah Miller, as well as highly skilled healthcare professionals, Grant Wilson, Physician Assistant, and Lacey Crimmins, Advanced Registered Practitioner nurse. Our orthopedic team is committed to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the spine, bones, joints and muscles.
