About Me

If you or a loved one needs expert orthopedic surgery, especially after a traumatic injury, look to Aaron Pemberton, MD, at Avera Medical Group Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Sioux Falls in Sioux Falls, SD.

Expert Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon

As a licensed and fellowship-trained orthopedic trauma surgeon, Dr. Pemberton specializes in complex fracture repair of pelvic, hip and joint fractures. He also provides services such as:

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

“My goal is to help restore form and function to people’s lives through surgery,” says Dr. Pemberton. “The best part of my job is being able to see people regain function that was temporarily taken away from them by an injury. I hope my patients know that I have a genuine interest in and concern for them as individuals.”

Dedicated Traumatology Team

Avera was the region's first to provide this type of care – 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

Dr. Pemberton’s go-to advice is to be as active as possible. “We’re made to be mobile, to do and to move,” he says. “Try to live an active lifestyle as much as you can.”

In his free time, Dr. Pemberton enjoys spending time with his family and traveling. He has also completed several marathons and participates in watersports and snowboarding.
