“The patient is part of our health care team. Each patient is different and unique. I see their needs and take an individualized approach.”
As an orthopedic surgeon with a focus
in sports medicine, Dr. Tamira Miranowski
treats all the musculoskeletal structures
that can be impacted by sports activity.
She cares for children and adults,
including student athletes and nonathletes
involved in recreational sports.
She is also involved in local high school
athletics on and off the field.
Dr. Miranowski was first introduced to
orthopedic sports medicine in college –
as an athletic trainer for the Minnesota
Gophers football team. She worked closely
with the players and the team’s sports
medicine doctor, seeing firsthand how
proper treatment enhanced the players’
abilities and return to normal function.
“I’m most passionate about how, through
surgery and treatment, I can help get patients back to where they were before being injured,” she said.
In her daily interaction with patients,
she focuses on “listening, being compassionate and taking the time to understand their goals and explain the treatment plan thoroughly.”
The Breckenridge, Minn., native was happy to return to the Midwest and be part of Marshfield Clinic Health System’s team-focused orthopedic practice.
She completed a fellowship in orthopedic
sports medicine at University of South Florida/Florida Orthopedic Institute, Tampa. She received her doctor in osteopathic orthopedic surgery degree
at Midwestern University/Franciscan Alliance, Downers Grove, Ill.; and a doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, California.
In her spare time, she and her husband enjoy visiting family in western Minnesota
and Chicago, running, boating/water sports, snowmobiling and travel.
