UW Medicine Sports, Spine & Orthopedic Health is a multidisciplinary team of specially trained, highly experienced rehab medicine and sports medicine physicians, orthopedic, plastic and spine surgeons, podiatrists, physical and occupational therapists and sports psychologists. As a partner in your patient’s care, surgical treatment is considered a last option. That is why our specialists offer the latest advances in non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy, to restore your muscle strength and range of motion or joint injections that help reduce inflammation and pain at the injury site. However, sometimes surgery is necessary. Patients who require surgical treatment are able to consult with skilled orthopedic surgeons who have extensive experience performing a variety of procedures, including minimally invasive arthroscopic surgeries at our state-of-the-art, outpatient facilities.
