Christina M. Ward, MD Orthopedic Surgery
About me

I joined the HealthPartners staff and University of Minnesota faculty in 2009. I treat hand and wrist problems from the common (carpal tunnel syndrome) to the complex (wrist fractures and dislocations), and have a special interest in hand and wrist trauma, including distal radius fractures, intercarpal injuries and distal radial-ulnar joint problems. I like the intricate anatomy of the hand and enjoy treating a wide variety of conditions.

Hand surgery research is an important part of my practice. I have published research in scientific journals and presented at local and national conferences. I also help with quality improvement projects within hand surgery. In this capacity, I work with our wonderful team of nurses, physician assistants, surgeons and our certified hand therapists to improve hand care for all of our patients.
