Orthopedics, Spinal Care and Sports Medicine
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.
Injuries often occur outside of regular office hours, in the evenings or on weekends when people tend to be more active, which is why we offer NW Orthopaedic Express, a walk-in clinic at our Spokane Valley location, to get you immediately treated by an orthopedic specialist. ER visits are expensive and urgent care clinics don’t have orthopedic specialists on staff, so avoid the wait and hassle of urgent care clinics or emergency rooms and come straight to us with no appointment necessary.
