Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship


High volume private practice setting in the north-central recreational area of Minnesota. Gain experience in navigated anterior hip replacement, robotic total knee replacement, shoulder reconstruction as well as revision and infection work--all while enjoying the outdoors and mountain biking trails of the Cuyuna Lakes area. The fellowship entails working with two surgeons and upon completion of the one-year fellowship, candidates will be ready to enter private practice and navigate any challenges that present. The focus of this fellowship is on the development of the candidate for real world practice with an outcomes-based approach. Research opportunities and registry data are available. We will prepare the candidate to take great care of patients and be successful in navigating the challenges presented by modern surgical practices, all while being able to blend emerging technologies into a time-honored, principled base practice.

Dr. Matthew Musto has been accepted as MCO’s first adult reconstruction fellow and will begin his practice in August 2022.

Cuyuna Lakes

CRMC is located in Crosby, Minnesota, in the heart of the Cuyuna Lakes Area. The area’s major attraction is the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area which boasts 25 miles of forested shoreline providing peaceful relaxation for those who desire a rustic experience. Leave technology behind and embrace the sun dancing on quiet, crystal blue waters, the crackling warmth of a campfire and the haunting call of loons. Start the day by mountain biking over 25 miles of trails. Spend a lazy afternoon paddling in a canoe or kayak on mine lakes. Slip over the side in scuba gear and explore the remnants of an iron mine hundreds of feet below the still surface. Plan a day or a week to camp, bike, hike and fish but leave the motorized off-road vehicles at home as they are not allowed in the park. Get a great overview of the area atop Miner’s Mountain. From Pennington Lake near Ironton, bike, hike or drive up the Outlook Trails’ winding switchbacks to the highest point in the area. There you will have a beautiful vista of numerous lakes and forests.

The area is also known for Serpent Lake, a beautiful body of clear, fresh water covering 1,057 acres that is approximately 65 feet deep at its deepest point. Around its more than nine miles of shoreline, amid birch, pine, oak, and other towering trees, more than 250 homes and cabins hug its meandering shoreline. Located between the cities of Crosby, on its western end, and Deerwood, on the east, Serpent is home to Walleye, Northern Pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass, crappies, and other fish, which attract anglers year-round. At the lakes largest public access point, Crosby Memorial Park, is a large, colorful serpent statue named Kahnah’bek (the Ojibwa name for Serpent). There are rumors that the lake’s namesake is because the waters are inhabited by a mythical sea serpent, but a more likely explanation is the shape of the lake.


The Cuyuna Country region is home to nearly 60,000 year-round residents and thousands more seasonal residents and visitors. Outdoor activities abound in the Cuyuna and Brainerd Lakes area that is nestled among more than 500 pristine lakes, including mountain biking, kayaking, spin and ice fishing, hunting, cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and much more. With Minneapolis and St. Paul about a two-hour drive away, you also can balance culture, shopping, and professional sports.


Many residents live on the surrounding lakes and have no trouble driving home from work in time to enjoy quality time outdoors. The opportunities in this area are endless for the outdoor enthusiast. To be able to live on a lake and be a short distance from your workplace, without the hassle of traffic jams, is truly remarkable.  No traffic jams—spend that time fishing, hunting, boating, biking, hiking, golfing, ice fishing, enjoying family, and enjoying sporting, music, and school events.  


Live where the rest of the state of Minnesota vacations—it’s a bit like living at a resort that you never have to leave. And of course, if you need to leave to go to the Mall of America, Cabela’s, a professional sports event, or a concert, it is only a few hours’ drive. A regional airport is also available with flights connecting you to the rest of the world and offers free parking and no TSA lines.


In addition to CRMC, Crosby is home to Graphic Packaging, a leading provider of packaging solutions, from cartons to machinery, for food, beverage, and other consumer products companies. Magnum Machinery which has offered world-class CNC machining since 1994, is another large employer.
