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. 

• Fractures & Dislocations
• Sprains & Strains (ligaments, tendons, muscles)
