Orthopedic Services Coming Soon to HAMH

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 | HAMH l News Release |

Hayward Area Memorial Hospital is excited to welcome Dr. Roger Branham, orthopedic surgeon, to the medical staff.

Dr. Branham comes with over 35 years of experience and has recently practiced in Rice Lake, Cumberland and Spooner. He received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He interned at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis and his orthopedic residency was completed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Having Dr. Branham on staff will allow us to treat patients with orthopedic injuries including fracture care, sports injuries and injuries of daily life. He performs a full range of joint replacements and surgical repairs. Key members of our surgical team have worked with Dr. Branham and they are excited about the opportunity to work with him again. He will also work closely with the newly expanded Rehab Services department on patient recovery following surgery or injury.

“Dr. Branham is well known to many members of our community,” said Tim Gullingsrud, CEO of Hayward Area Memorial Hospital and Water’s Edge. “We are thrilled that he has chosen to relocate his practice to Hayward. His expertise will help us continue to meet the needs of our community and provide more specialty care right here.”

“I was introduced to my grandparents’ cabin on Lac Courte Oreilles when I was two weeks old,” said Dr. Branham. “The cabin has remained in my family and we continue to return frequently. I look forward to spending more time in Hayward.”

In his free time he enjoys being with family: wife Grace, son Roger, daughter Sara and five grandchildren.

“Our goal is to establish a high quality orthopedic program for residents of the Hayward area,” said Dr. Branham.

Dr. Branham plans to begin seeing patients at Hayward Area Memorial Hospital in early Spring 2018.
