Like many of us, Dr. Joel Boyd’s routine came to a sudden halt in recent weeks.

As an orthopedic surgeon at TRIA, he can no longer operate, and he is mostly checking with patients by phone.

He also had to stop traveling and treating Minnesota Wild hockey players when the NHL put the current season on hold.

Boyd joined Angela as part of an occasional series of profile interviews of Minnesotans whose names you may not have heard, but whose accomplishments inspire admiration.


Dr. Joel Boyd is a TRIA orthopedic surgeon, head physician for the Minnesota Wild, and the team physician for the University of Minnesota Golden Gopher football team.
