Chad Myeroff, MDShoulder & Elbow Specialist

I specialize in sports injuries, arthritis, fractures and dislocations of the shoulder and elbow. My goal is to understand the needs of my patients and achieve those goals with state-of-the art treatment. By focusing on treating all aspects of the shoulder and elbow, I can provide lifelong care focused on the exact needs of my patients. This approach also allows me to stay up-to-date on modern trends and provide the whole scope of care.

After educating my patients on their injury, I help them forge a treatment plan with the goal of returning to their active lifestyles. I focus on individualizing care to match the needs of each patient, whether it is best achieved with injections, physical therapy, arthroscopy, fracture care or joint replacement.

My roots are in Cleveland, Ohio, but I'm a proud Minnesota transplant. When I'm not taking care of my patients or lecturing, you can find me and my family rooting for the Golden Gophers, enjoying the bohemian Twin Cities or paddling the Boundary Waters. I like to golf, travel and cycle - I can often be found cycling to work.

I am a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the Minnesota Orthopaedic Society (MOS). I am also a candidate member of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association (OTA) and the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES).
