Meet Katherine Friese, CNP

I am thrilled to join Hamilton Bone and Joint, partnering with Dr. Hamilton to create an exceptional health care experience. Wellness and functioning have been prominent themes in my career caring for patients. Wellness does not mean to be free from illness or injury; it is maximizing on one’s own health and abilities. I am happy to continue my professional journey at Hamilton Bone and Joint and grateful to care for the orthopedic needs of our community and beyond.
