RiverView Opens Thief River Falls Clinic

7/13/2015

RiverView Health is pleased to announce the opening of its Thief River Falls Clinic.

The Clinic, located at 1140 Vanrooy Drive, includes the practices of Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Colin Fennell and Gastroenterologist Dr. Mirza Baig, along with laboratory services.

Dr. Fennell treats diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system with surgery and corrective mechanical devices. He cares for bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves -- everything that allows you to move, work and be active. While Dr. Fennell treats all musculoskeletal issues, his specialty is on upper extremities, including the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. Among other procedures, he is known for his innovative, non-surgical treatment of elbow tendonitis (tennis elbow) and Dupuytren’s contracture, a progressive hand condition that affects how much you can move or straighten your fingers. With his advanced procedures, the need for surgery is greatly reduced for patients suffering with those issues. Dr. Fennell has been with RiverView Health for 13 years.

Dr. Baig has extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), and biliary system (liver, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts). He commonly treats gastroesophageal reflux disease, commonly known as GERD. Dr. Baig has also successfully implemented a procedure that destroys pre-cancerous tissue in the lining of the esophagus for those with Barrett’s esophagus, a condition that affects up to two million Americans each year. Dr. Baig has practiced at RiverView for 11 years.
