Provider Bio down arrow

Marshfield Clinic orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas J. Bramwell owes his interest in medicine, in part, to experiences shadowing the team doctor for his high school football team. His specific interest in orthopedics began during his time playing college football for Augsburg College in Minneapolis.​​

​​“Seeing some of my teammates go through injuries and return healthy after surgery made me want to go into orthopedics. I wanted to help people return to their preinjury activity levels,” Dr. Bramwell said.

​​He earned his medical degree from Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his orthopedic residency at Ohio University and Doctors Hospital. Prior to joining Marshfield Clinic, Dr. Bramwell worked as an orthopedic surgeon for Mayo Clinic Health System. Becoming fully board certified is the career accomplishment of which Dr. Bramwell is most proud.

Dr. Bramwell sees a wide variety of patients, including those who have suffered sports injuries, need a hip or knee replacement or have hand disorders. One of the aspects of orthopedic surgery he enjoys most is the precision it requires.

​​“I am a perfectionist, and I strive to do the best work I can every single day,” Dr. Bramwell said. “To be able to improve patients’ quality of life and make them better than they were before they came to my office is awesome.”

Dr. Bramwell believes an open dialogue with patients is critical to ensuring the best possible outcome for their care.​​

“I am very honest with my patients,” he said. “I want them to understand their situation, diagnosis and what their options are.”​​

When he is not at work, Dr. Bramwell enjoys running, playing hockey and golfing. He is married with two children.

in less than 30 seconds he diagnosed my issue. I went in for a deep hip injection for airtritus in my hip but received an injection for hip bursitis. He did leave a card for a Dr that did deep hip injections.
