Orthopedic Institute

Every year, we help restore people’s quality of life by performing successful spine surgeries, joint replacement surgeries and other orthopedic procedures. Our orthopedic surgeons pioneered joint replacement methods that are now used worldwide, and we were the first in the Puget Sound area to offer MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing treatment.

The Swedish Orthopedic Institute was the first facility of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. Today, the institute has grown to include more than 80 of the region’s most experienced surgeons across four Swedish campuses.

If you want to get back to the life you love, attend a free orthopedic seminar where you can learn about our services and meet the team.
