Larson is associated with Twin Cities Orthopedics, as are additional new hires Dr. Chris Coetzee and Dr. Greg Lervick. Pelissero reported that the Vikings’ previous contract with Tria Orthopedics expired, and the team has now decided to transition to the new brand.
#Vikings‘ contract with Tria expired. New docs handled pre-minicamp physicals last month and contracts were finalized recently.

It seems Minnesota is intentionally employing specialists, as each of the three additions focus on a specific area. Coetzee works with foot/ankle, and Lervick’s focus is shoulder/elbow. Larson is well-established as one of the nation’s leading hip surgeons, and he also specializes in knees.
