Meet Hans Bengtson

Philosophy of Care

As an athlete myself, I experienced first-hand what it is like to be injured and unable to play.  While growing up playing most any activity/sport that had a ball, in my middle school years I, too, sustained an injury.  It was my positive recovery and meaningful personal experience with my orthopedic surgeon that inspired me to pursue this field of medicine.  I appreciate the opportunity to help people recover and return to sport, and to life, at their fullest.

Personal Interests

I returned to live in the town where I grew up, Northfield, MN. My wife and I have 2 children. I enjoy reading, being outdoors, playing football, tennis, golf, table tennis, yard games and any other competitive endeavor.
