Winston J. Warme M.D., is a UW 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.
