Beginning August 15, Michael O’Borsky, DPM, and Foot & Ankle Specialists will become part of Stellis Health. “I’m excited to be joining Stellis Health and provide more comprehensive care for all my patients’ foot and ankle conditions,” says Dr. O’Borsky. “I will be working closely with Dr. Mark Nelson as well as all the family medicine, internists and orthopedic surgeons at Stellis Health.”
Dr. O’Borsky will be expanding beyond the Buffalo area and plans to provide care at all three Stellis Health locations in Buffalo, Monticello and Albertville. He will be performing most of his surgeries at the Monticello Surgery Center to ensure his patients receive high-quality, lower-cost same-day surgical care. Having provided quality podiatry care in Buffalo for over 20 years, Dr. O’Borsky is committed to his patients and continuing to provide the full range of podiatry services at Stellis Health. “Expanding podiatry services at Stellis Health will allow all our patients to seamlessly access the full range of foot and ankle care from routine checkups to treatment and surgery,” says Douglas Hanson, CEO of Stellis Health.
Dr. O’Borsky views feet as the foundation of the body. Structural problems or foot pain can affect multiple joints and a person’s ability to function at the highest level possible in both their home and community. He strives to offer all his patients immediate relief of their symptoms, including pain and physical deformity. Dr. O’Borsky believes it is a privilege to provide both conservative and surgical treatments that can be life changing improvements and affect his patients overall health and wellness.
Dr. O’Borsky is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. He graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College and completed the Doctorate for Podiatric Medicine at the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago Illinois.

The Bush Foundation is proud to introduce Cory Martin, MD, Stellis Health, P. A. as one of twenty four recipients of the 2017 Bush Fellowship. Each Bush Fellow will receive up to $100,000 to pursue the education and experiences they believe will help make them more effective leaders.
“The 2017 Bush Fellows are extraordinary leaders who make significant contributions to their communities.

The Fellowship is distinctive in its flexibility, allowing each Fellow to create a leadership development plan that is tailored to their needs and ambition. Fellows can use the funding to pursue advanced education, networking opportunities, and leadership resources, workshops and trainings.
The Foundation received nearly 650 applications for the 2017 Bush Fellowship.

The total cost of care at Stellis Health is 17 percent lower than the Minnesota state average, according to a new report by the Minnesota Community Measurement (MNCM) nonprofit. The report looks at clinic costs across Minnesota and assesses whether the increased costs are the result of clinics charging more or ordering more care like tests, follow-up visits, and prescriptions.
The new Stellis Health logo features a star twinkling at the horizon to symbolize the Latin root meaning of Stellis and the physician’s daily calling to watch over our communities’ health.
Stellis Health is the new name for Buffalo Clinic, Monticello Clinic, and Albertville-St. Michael Clinic. And though you’ll be seeing new signage outside all three clinics, inside, you’ll find the same primary and specialty physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who’ve been treating patients all these years.
