Dr. Uggen

Jon Uggen, DO - Voted #1 Orthopedic Surgeon in Best of Omaha 2022

Dr. Jon Uggen attributes his love for medicine to his family. Made up of medical professionals, his family consists of two orthopedic surgeons and a nurse. It was only natural, then, that he would choose to follow the same path. His desire to care for people was further solidified after tending to his brother, who required round-the-clock medical care.

Dr. Uggen went on to attend medical school at Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. He later completed his internship and residency at Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. Deciding to be like his father and brother, he completed his orthopedic fellowship at the Anderson Orthopedic Research Institute in Alexandria, Virginia. Today, he is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in joint replacements at MD West ONE. 

Dr. Uggen is devoted to providing the best care possible. His philosophy is to deliver “110% care.” He also cares deeply for each of his patients treating each person like family and wanting nothing more than to see them regain their function and independence.

In his free time, Dr. Uggen enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters. He also enjoys staying active and participates in activities such as hunting, camping, water sports, kiteboarding, skiing, and traveling.
