Dr. Michael Dirkx, orthopedic surgeon and specialist with Northwest Iowa Bone, Joint & Sports Surgeons of Spencer Hospital, will initiate an orthopedic clinic at Hartley Family Care beginning June 1, with patients scheduled the first and third Thursdays of each month.

“Spencer Hospital’s new Hartley Family Care clinic provides a wonderful space and opportunity for me to travel to the O’Brien County region, offering more convenient care for patients in need of initial orthopedic assessments and for follow-up care,” Dr. Dirkx commented.

 “Spencer Hospital has just installed an updated x-ray unit within Hartley Community Memorial Health Center, enabling us to capture many of the images needed for orthopedic evaluations,” he added. “I’m looking forward to working with the team at Hartley Family Care to provide services to local patients in need of orthopedic care.”

Dr. Dirkx specializes in general orthopedic care and robot-assisted total joint replacement. A native of Carroll, Dr. Dirkx received his bachelor’s degree from Buena Vista University where he competed for the Beavers baseball team. He attended medical school at Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his orthopedic residency at McLaren Macomb Hospital, Michigan.
