Beginning in the 1950s, Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists pioneered orthopedic surgery in Spokane and the Pacific Northwest. Originally two individual practices, Northwest Orthopaedic and Fracture Clinic and Associated Orthopaedic Specialists combined to form Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists and has remained the leader in orthopedics for more than 60 years.
Spokane is on the cutting edge of medicine in areas such as cardiac surgery, cancer treatment and renal transplantation. Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists has extended this positive reputation into orthopedics with sub-specialties in fracture care, spine, sports medicine, joint replacement, and pain management.
Serving a community of more than three-quarters of a million people in the greater Spokane area, the doctors of Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists strive to care for the orthopedic needs of their fellow residents compassionately and with the most contemporary methods available. Office locations covering all the geographic areas of Spokane allow us to provide comprehensive patient treatment and support to the four Spokane hospitals. In addition, owning a freestanding Surgery Center allows us to provide increased quality of care for a lower price and allows us to provide streamlined outpatient treatments which are consistently praised by our patients.
Throughout the years, Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists has grown with the Spokane region and the Inland Northwest with three offices Downtown, North, and Spokane Valley. In 2017, we expanded to orthopedic urgent care with our Express Clinic, NW Orthopaedic Express, in the Spokane Valley. We now have multiple convenient Express locations to suit your needs - in the Spokane Valley, on the South Hill, and North Division at the Y. In 2020, we expanded again to offer NW Orthopaedic Physical Therapy in two Spokane locations - on the South Hill and North Division at the Y.
