Grand Rapids, MN – Grand Itasca Clinic & Hospital is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. JJ Germscheid, General Surgeon, to its medical staff. Germscheid received his medical degree from the University of Minnesota in Duluth and Minneapolis, and completed his general surgery residency at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND.

Germscheid and his wife, Teran, have an almost two-year-old, Ava, with another baby on the way. "We fell in love with northern Minnesota when we were in school at Duluth. We were especially drawn to Grand Rapids because of the natural beauty of the area. When we came to visit, we were impressed with all the abundance of high quality activities available to kids and adults, including outdoor trails, arts, theater, and schools. We are happy to make this community our new home,” says Germscheid.

Germscheid performs general surgery procedures including laparoscopic, endoscopic, abdominal, thyroid, breast and colon procedures at Grand Itasca. "My colleagues and I see all sort of patients with all sorts of surgical needs. I love the challenge of diagnosing, treating patients and eventually intervening in a wide variety of surgical problems,” says Germscheid. "I am particularly excited about practicing at Grand Itasca as I know that our rural setting means we not only see a variety of patients, but we also have the opportunity to get to know our patients personally and make a significant difference in their lives.”

Germscheid continues, "I’ve found the environment at Grand Itasca to be very welcoming and friendly. This is a beautiful facility. The surgical capabilities, in the sense of equipment and staff, here have far exceeded my expectations.”
