About Me

Count on Michael Devish, DO, for expert orthopedic surgery at Avera Medical Group Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Sioux Falls in Sioux Falls, SD.

Orthopedic Trauma Surgery Expertise

As a licensed and fellowship-trained orthopedic trauma surgeon, Dr. Devish provides acute orthopedic trauma services including:

  • Basic and complex adult fracture repair
  • Complex geriatric fracture care, including broken bones after a total hip replacement
  • Pediatric trauma care
  • General orthopedic care

“I consider myself a carpenter who gets to fix broken bones,” says Dr. Devish, who also enjoys the challenge of using the smallest incisions possible. “The best part of my job is being able to help people quickly and in a significant way. Watching my patients heal and be able to move on with their lives after a traumatic injury is rewarding.”

Dedicated Traumatology Team

Dr. Devish is also part of the region’s only traumatology team – dedicated to providing 24/7/365 coverage for serious orthopedic injuries and fractures at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center and Avera Medical Group Family Health Center emergency departments.

An Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Devish enjoys downhill skiing, snowboarding, surfing, mountain biking, golfing, backpacking and hiking. He also looks forward to hunting and fishing again now that he’s back in his home state.

He advises patients to find their own ways to remain active and healthy. “Using your bones and even putting a little stress on them each day through exercise and activity can help make them stronger and prevent osteoporosis. It can be as simple as walking more.”
