Nicole Zappa, DO, MHA

What are a few interesting facts that people may not know about you?

I’m excited to be back in Minnesota, starting a new practice near where I grew up. In my free time, I really like to read, travel and eat good food.

Why did you go into medicine?

I was inspired by my family physician when I was a child. He loved his work, and he took care of my whole family.

How did you choose orthopedics?

I was an athlete in high school and college, and I liked surgery, so I think orthopedics was naturally a good fit for me.

What does your dream practice look like?

My dream practice looks like working with good people, and taking care of patients in the best way I know how.

What is your care philosophy?

I aim to provide patients with information and education so they can make the best decisions possible for themselves.


Dr. Zappa will practice at TCO’s Osceola, Stillwater, and Vadnais Heights locations.
