If a fracture wreaks havoc with your daily life, we are here to heal you.

The impact a fracture, or multiple fractures, has on a patient and his or her family can be profound. No injury ever occurs at the right time. Loss of wages, time out of school and sports, and the inability to provide for loved ones can cause serious anxiety and suffering.

The specialists at ProOrtho have the knowledge and skill to return patients back to their active lifestyles in a timely fashion. Whether you need a cast, brace or surgery, our surgeons are trained in the state-of-the-art techniques that will optimize your outcomes. Post-fracture rehabilitation is utilized to ensure the necessary return of function.

Pediatric fractures

For our pediatric patients, we treat you as we would our own children: with compassion, patience, sympathy and understanding. We know that school and sports are important in your children’s lives. So whether they break their wrist snowboarding or fracture their ankle playing soccer, we will have them back in the game quickly – and, yes, back to school as well!

Seniors

For seniors, the worry that accompanies a hip fracture can be paralyzing. While we realize that hip fractures may cause long-term difficulties with mobility, our aim is a timely surgical repair and aggressive postoperative rehabilitation to get you back on your feet and playing golf, tennis or to your beloved garden.

And for our weekend warriors, many fractures can be treated with outpatient procedures in our Ambulatory Surgery Center. If you need your wrist pinned, your ankle plated or your separated shoulder repaired, remember that our surgeons will ensure a safe and speedy recovery to help you resume your flag football career.

Our surgeons are known for their expertise in all fracture types. We are skilled in handling every problem fracture type and fracture problem. We are available for acute injuries in Seattle, Kirkland and Bellevue hospitals, and for consultations for chronic nonunions and osteomyelitis in our clinics. We are here to help!
