Dr. Warme is a UW associate professor of orthopedics and sports medicine and chief of the Shoulder and Elbow Service. He is board certified in orthopedic surgery. He joined the UW faculty after retiring from a career in the U.S. Army, where he began as an enlisted Special Forces medic and finished as a colonel in the Medical Corps.

I most enjoy developing relationships with patients and helping them to improve their quality of life through orthopedic interventions, while teaching the next generation of subspecialists how to treat patients with compassion, careful attention and dignity.

Expeditiously returning all patients to top form and returning recreational or elite athletes to their previous level of sport as quickly and painlessly as possible.
