About Me

For high-quality foot and ankle care, look to Ruth Moen, DPM, a rearfoot and ankle fellowship-trained podiatry specialist with Avera Orthopedics. Dr. Moen treats patients of all ages and focuses on both non-surgical and surgical treatment to keep her patients healthy, active, and happy. As a college athlete, Dr. Moen had first-hand experience with foot and ankle injury and pain. She uses her personal experience and training to foster relationships with her patients and work together towards recovery.

Personalized Foot & Ankle Care to Help You Restore Function

She has extensive training and special interest in the treatment of foot and ankle trauma and fracture care, sports and athletic injuries, and foot and ankle arthritis. She enjoys managing patients with flat feet and high-arch feet; as well as treating patients with bunions and hammertoes. She also enjoys counseling patients on injury prevention.

As a chief resident, she served as a leader, listener, creator, and communicator. She has continued to utilize these skills to help patients of all ages stay active. Her fellowship training has given her advanced surgical exposure to reconstructive foot and ankle procedures, including:

  • Advanced bunion correction
  • Ankle arthroscopy and ligament repair
  • Ankle fusion and total ankle replacement
  • Treatment of foot and ankle injuries, including fractures and tendon repair
  • Reconstructive foot and ankle surgery

Dr. Moen recognizes that the field of foot and ankle surgery is constantly changing. She is committed to staying current on new concepts and innovations. She attends national conferences and workshops throughout the year to stay up-to-date on new technology and surgical advancements; this helps her provide the best possible care to her patients.

Active Lifestyle

When not seeing patients, Dr. Moen and her family live a healthy, active lifestyle filled with travel, hiking and good food. She enjoys spending time at her lake home in Minnesota, attending sporting events and afternoon walks with her husband, young daughter and their two Labradoodles. As a former college soccer player and track runner, she is passionate about fitness and enjoys starting or ending the day with a sunrise or evening run.

I had a traumatic foot injury. I was emotionally devesated by the prognosis and the treatment needed. Thru all of this event Dr. Moen and her team have worked with and for me to get me back to my best (and better!) physical condition. She talked about what needed done. Listened to my worries and fears. Let me cry. And throughout each step she encouraged and cheered me on. I never felt less-than anything other than her top priority.

I had four appointments with Dr. Moen. On each of the first three appointments I waited to be called into the room at least 15 and at one visit over 30 minutes. In the room I waited for 40 minutes before Dr. Moen came in. On the last visit I told the nurse that we had to be out within an hour as my daughter/driver had a meeting at work. We were seen immediately that time. At all the other appointments
