Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Nessler received his orthopedic training at the Rochester Mayo Clinic. He has a specialty practice in hip and knee joint replacement as well as revision joint replacement. Dr Nessler joined St. Cloud Orthopedic Association in 1991, and is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons as well as the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. Dr. Nessler is a consultant for Stryker Orthopedics, a world wide leader in Orthopedics implants and Robotics for Orthopedic surgery. Currently, he consults in the development of new surgical techniques, clinical testing of new implant designs as well as computer and robotically assisted surgery. Dr. Nessler has developed a muscle-sparing hip replacement technique in conjunction with Stryker. In July, 2004 computer assisted navigation was incorporated into his hip surgeries. Navigation in knee surgeries began in January 2005.
