We have big news, and it is time to ask again... “How did we get this lucky?” We welcome Dr. Corinne (Cori) Jordan MD to our board. When she accepted our request to work with us, we were beyond excited. She brings not only expertise in the subjects of breast cancer, but also holistic healing and the mental aspects involved with the cancer journey.
Read on to learn more about Dr. Jordan and why we are so thrilled to have her as a part of our team.
Dr. Corinne (Cori) Jordan is a board certified surgeon who specializes in general surgery and breast surgery and practices at the New Ulm Medical Center in New Ulm, MN. Dr. Jordan earned her medical degree at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, N.Y. and completed her residency at St. Vincent’s Catholic Medical Center, New York, N.Y. She previously served as Vice Chair Department of Surgery at Maple Grove Hospital, Vice Chief of Staff at Buffalo Hospital, and Medical Advisor on Breast Disease at Buffalo Hospital. In addition, she practiced at North Memorial Health, Mercy Hospital — Unity Campus, Abbott Northwestern — West Health, and Centra Care Health — Monticello.
Dr. Jordan was named to the Mpls. St. Paul Magazine Top Doctors list for five consecutive years, 2013-2017. “I like surgery because it’s a nice combination of science, art, creativity and technology. Specifically, I like that it allows me to engage with my patients and really look at them from an overall holistic and wellness perspective,” said Dr. Jordan. She says she believes it’s important to treat the person, not the disease. “It’s not just about doing surgery but making sure a patient is well-supported at home; that they’re eating well, taking care of themselves and getting regular exercise. The things that we all know we’re supposed to do are actually really important to ensure good outcomes and quality of life.”
Dr. Jordan looks forward to sharing her passion for women’s health, breast health and overall wellness with her patients. She previously taught survivorship yoga for breast cancer survivors to help manage symptoms without medications and improve their quality of life.
Outside of her practice, she enjoys CrossFit, reading, working out, spending time with her family, and yoga. She and her husband, Matt, have a son, Emory, and daughter, Charlotte.
