About Me

Sports Medicine Expertise

For injuries related to sports and physical activity, look to Jonathan Buchanan, MD, CAQ, MBA, at Avera Orthopedics in Sioux Falls, SD. As a a board-certified internal medicine physician with specialized training in sports medicine, you’ll benefit from his expertise and compassionate care.

Dr. Buchanan provides sports medicine and orthopedic care for all ages and specializes in using ultrasound technology to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries.

Compassionate Care for Athletes of All Ages

“Medicine was my chosen future after I destroyed my knee playing football and landed myself in an orthopedic surgery office at 9 years old,” recalls Dr. Buchanan. “Experiencing my own injuries gives me a sense of compassion and understanding about suffering and how I can be part of alleviating it.”

“My goal – both personally and professionally – is to help people move more, whether that’s taking daily walks around the park, participating in sports, or competing in triathlons or marathons. Seeing my patients’ success keeps me moving and keeps me motivated.”

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Buchanan loves spending time with his family, including his wife and four children. “They are the center of my life,” he says.

He also enjoys competing in marathons and triathlons, playing sports, sky diving, snowboarding, skiing, hiking, camping, reading and volunteering for church activities.

“I get up every morning with optimism because it’s a new opportunity to inspire people to obtain and maintain an active, healthy lifestyle,” he says.
