Bio

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

Dr. Warme's clinical focus is returning patients to top physical condition and recreational and elite athletes to their previous level of sport as quickly and painlessly as possible. His research interests include pushing the frontiers of arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery and developing techniques and tools to facilitate this goal.

He takes pleasure in developing relationships with patients and helping them improve their quality of life through orthopedic interventions. He also enjoys teaching the next generation of subspecialists how to treat patients with compassion, attention and dignity.

Personal Interests

Outside of medicine, Dr. Warme enjoys exploring his faith, spending time with family, playing guitar and getting outdoors rock climbing, mountaineering, skiing, cycling and diving.
