Scott Kellerman is into active sports big time. Whether he’s riding a horse and roping cattle for a rodeo or playing volleyball or softball, he loves being physically active.
So when a fall during a volleyball game in Aitkin injured his right knee, he was anxious to get it fixed right away. When Dr. Jon Herseth, orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine, diagnosed torn ligaments—both the ACL and MCL, Scott elected to have surgery so he could get “back in the saddle” without too much time on the sidelines.
“Dr. Herseth was very thorough and easy to communicate with,” Scott said. “My knee surgery with him went very smoothly and I got answers for all my questions right away. I would highly recommend him to others in a heartbeat.”
Scott was pleased with how quickly he was able to resume his active lifestyle.
“I had surgery in late March and I was able to return to my job as foreman at the Aitkin County Highway Department two weeks later. This summer, I resumed team roping on the rodeo circuit and played softball. By late summer, I was hauling hay again.”
Scott also expressed appreciation for his physical therapy over a 12-week period at Riverwood. “Jenn Klee did a real good job for me. She was thorough and pushed me along at a pace I could tolerate.”
