Michael J. Priola, DO

  • Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery

About halfway through his orthopedic residency, Michael Priola, D.O., knew he wanted to specialize in pediatric orthopedics. He enjoyed the patients and their families, and the breadth of cases seemed limitless.

After his fellowship at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Dr. Priola spent four years in the U.S. Army building a pediatric orthopedic clinic in Ft. Stewart, Georgia. He enjoyed serving our troops and their families, but after his commitment had ended he was drawn to the Twin Cities.

Dr. Priola started at Shriners Children's in October of 2015 and has seen many changes while he has been here. He says the cases are challenging and the work is fulfilling. He is particularly drawn to sports cases, but covers a wide variety of pathology, including spina bifida, cerebral palsy, hip dysplasia and is extremely excited about the direction of our newly formed clubfoot clinic. Dr. Priola is excited about our new direction and looking forward to serving our local community and surrounding seven states for years to come.
