Updated: Feb 29

At Osceola Medical Center (OMC), we're thrilled to kick off early 2024 by welcoming Dr. Mitchell Thompson, a distinguished specialist in the field of Podiatry, focusing on foot and ankle care.

Dr. Thompson brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and a heartwarming dedication to patient care that perfectly aligns with our ethos of providing big-city healthcare with small-town hospitality.

A Journey of Excellence

Dr. Thompson's journey in medicine is one of dedication, extensive training, and a deep-seated desire to make a difference in the lives of his patients. After earning his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from Des Moines University, he honed his skills through a rigorous residency at Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, WI. But he didn't stop there; Dr. Thompson further specialized in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery during his fellowship at the renowned Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center in Columbus, Ohio.

His professional background is impressive, encompassing a wide array of specialties within the realm of podiatry. Dr. Thompson is adept in treating conditions ranging from sports injuries to complex reconstructive needs, including bunion correction, arthroscopic surgery, total ankle replacements, and diabetic foot care. His approach to care is comprehensive, ensuring that each patient receives a tailored treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and goals.

A Philosophy Rooted in Compassion and Personalization

Dr. Thompson's philosophy of care is a testament to his character and professional ethos. He believes that "All patients and their individual problems are unique and deserve personalized care."

This perspective is crucial in the field of podiatry, where each case can significantly impact a patient's quality of life. Dr. Thompson is committed to listening and understanding his patient's goals and expectations, ensuring the best possible outcomes through both surgical and non-surgical treatments.

Coming Back Home

What makes Dr. Thompson's arrival at OMC even more special is his personal connection to the area. Originally from St. Croix Valley, he and his family have chosen to return after a decade away, bringing his expertise back to the community he calls home. This homecoming is a reflection of his commitment to giving back and making a difference in the lives of those in the St. Croix Valley and beyond.

A Life Beyond Medicine

When he's not in the clinic or surgery room, Dr. Thompson is an avid outdoorsman, embracing everything our beautiful region has to offer. From being on the water to golfing, hunting, and fishing, his love for the outdoors and spending quality time with his family resonates with many of us here in the community. It's this blend of professional excellence and personal relatability that makes Dr. Thompson a perfect fit for OMC.

As we welcome Dr. Thompson to our team, we're excited about the depth of care and expertise he brings to our Podiatry department. His arrival marks a significant step forward in our ongoing commitment to providing comprehensive, compassionate care to our community.

We're confident that his skills and specialties will greatly benefit our patients, helping them to achieve better health and mobility.
