Specialized Orthopaedic Care, Close To Home

Orthopedics focuses on injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. If you break a bone in Mahaska County or need a knee replacement in Oskaloosa, you’ll meet our orthopaedist, Dr. Sreedhar Somisetty, MD and Dr. Jon Gehrke, MD. 

Dr. Somisetty trained at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School and has been practicing full time at MHP since 2003. Dr. Somisetty is well-known for his expertise in orthopaedics and his skill performing surgeries including total hip and knee replacements, shoulder and knee reconstruction, among others. His patients often comment on the outstanding care provided by Dr. Somisetty and his staff, and their appreciation for his dedication to their health.

Michael Johnston, PA-C, joined Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Sreedhar Somisetty in 2010 to expand access for orthopaedic care to the community. Mike has more than 20 years of experience in bone and joint health, previously practicing at the VA Hospital in Des Moines.
