Express Clinic Patient Testimonial
Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists’ board-certified providers and fellowship-trained surgeons provide transformative, compassionate surgical and conservative/non-surgical orthopedic care to patients throughout Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and the Pacific Northwest. Offices are conveniently located in Downtown Spokane, North Spokane and Spokane Valley. Highly-trained orthopedists hold the doctor/patient relationship in the highest regard and provide orthopedic care for injuries and trauma, sports medicine and interventional pain management.
- More than 8,000 orthopedic surgeries each year
- More than 5,500 interventional pain procedures each year
It is our mission, and our passion, to continue to provide the highest level of surgical and nonsurgical care focused completely on you—our patient.
Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists offers three NW Orthopaedic Express walk-in clinics to get you immediately treated by an orthopedic specialist: Spokane Valley, South Hill at 57th & Regal, and North Division at the Y.
ER visits are expensive and urgent care clinics don’t have orthopedic specialists on staff, so avoid the wait, hassle, and cost associated with alternative walk-in options, and come straight to us with no appointment necessary.

“Dr. Soren Olson made me feel at ease with my upcoming procedure. He took the time to explain the procedure and answered all my questions. The procedure went beautifully. I was very fortunate and my pain was minimal, nothing that just ice didn't take care of. At my postop appt, Dr. Olson took a lot of time to show me all the pictures of my hip joint and the repair that he performed. Flawless experience! Thank you, Dr. Olson!”
