Dr. Robert Semba is a general orthopedic surgeon who treats a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, ranging from simple fractures to congenital disorders to wear-and-tear problems typically found later in life.

His practice focuses on both nonoperative solutions like physical therapy and steroid injections, as well as arthroscopic surgery, trauma surgery, and joint reconstruction and replacement.

Dr. Semba grew up in Minneapolis. Raised in a family of physicians, he says he was destined for the medical field. He moved to the west coast to attend Stanford University for his undergraduate studies, then returned to the Midwest to pursue his M.D. at the University of Minnesota Medical School. In 1987, he completed his residency in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Minnesota.
