Congratulations to David Folden, MD for being named in Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine’s annual listing of Rising Stars for the third year in a row! MSP Mag listed 383 Docs in 43 different specialties to watch in 2017, with Dr. Folden being honored as a rising star in Ophthalmology.

Dr. Folden specializes in LASIK, cataract, and refractive lens implant surgery. As an early adopter of femtosecond laser technology, he is now considered to be among the most experienced laser cataract surgeons in the state of Minnesota.  He works closely within the industry to improve the design of instruments used for laser cataract surgery, enhancing overall safety and prioritizing comfort for patients undergoing this procedure.

In 2015, in partnership with Rhein Medical, Dr. Folden invented a cataract surgical tool, the Folden Femto Dissector. This instrument was designed to simplify laser-created corneal incision opening and improving outcomes, safety and comfort for patients. The tool has received great reviews and acclaim.

Dr. Folden received his medical degree from the University of North Dakota  where he gained recognition for his research in cardiac physiology and infectious disease. He and his wife, Rachel, have two children. For entertainment, they enjoy local restaurants and travel.
