Dr. Karen Evensen is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon specializing
in hip and knee disorders. She treats the full spectrum of lower extremity
orthopedic issues, from athletic hip or knee injuries to advanced arthritis
requiring hip or knee replacement surgery.
A graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School, she completed
an Orthopedic residency at the University of Iowa. She went on to complete
dual fellowship training: a fellowship in Musculoskeletal Oncology at
the University of California, Los Angeles, followed by a fellowship in

Dr. Evensen focuses on customizing patient care, ranging from conservative
management options --such as lifestyle changes, structured physical therapy,
and joint injections-- through surgical management. Her surgical approach
includes use of minimally invasive techniques and a multidisciplinary
team approach in order to successfully return each patient to an active
and healthy lifestyle.
