Patient Testimonials

My first experience with this group of professionals was very serious. Dr. Pietrafitta was called in and saved my life. I know how thorough he is from beginning to end. Very nice group.

About Us

Maple Grove Surgical Specialists opened it's clinic in Maple Grove in July 2006 after moving from Minneapolis where the clinic had been located since 1992 under the name of Joseph J Pietrafitta, M.D., P.A.

The General Surgeon Specialist is specifically trained and qualified to provide surgical care of the whole patient. He/she has expertise in the evaluation and comprehensive treatment of patients with injuries and illnesses involving a wide range of systems and anatomical regions.

The General Surgeon Specialist, by training, interest, and professional ethics, is dedicated to the total care of the surgical patient and to coordination of the whole episode of care, consulting with other specialists when appropriate.

The General Surgeon Specialist coordinates the patient's surgical care with emphasis on quality, access, and cost effectiveness.

As a service to patients, our practice has traditionally provided outreach clinics and outpatient surgery in several  surrounding communities. We have tried to keep patients in their community for any consultations or surgical procedures that can be safely done in a local community setting. Patients are cared for in facilities with additional specialized equipment or services if necessary.
