    Biography

    While Dr. Staiger is passionate about helping people, his greatest enjoyment comes from spending time with his wife and children, from family movie nights to hiking in the Rocky Mountains, and enjoying the changing seasons here in Minnesota. The Staiger family is involved in helping others through several mission opportunities.

    While surgery is sometimes the best option to treat issues affecting the hand and upper extremity, I always make sure that the patient and I have explored all of the non-operative strategies first. My goal is to also maximize overall well-being for the patient by encouraging healthy lifestyle choices from exercise to good eating habits.; - Dr. Staiger
