Express Clinic—Walk-ins Welcome
Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists’ skilled team of orthopedic surgeons, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and physician assistants work together to provide transformative, compassionate surgical and conservative/non-surgical orthopedic care, spine care, pain management, and therapy to patients throughout Spokane, Spokane Valley, Coeur d’Alene and the Pacific Northwest. NWOS offices are conveniently located in Downtown Spokane, North Spokane, and Spokane Valley, with walk-in clinics located in North Spokane, Spokane Valley, and on the South Hill. Highly-trained providers hold the doctor/patient relationship in the highest regard and provide exceptional care for orthopedic and spine conditions, injuries, and trauma, as well as sports medicine, interventional pain management, and physical and hand therapy.
- 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.
