Physicians at Swedish are at the forefront of sophisticated procedures and are working to pioneer the latest, safest orthopedic techniques, high-tech instruments, tools and treatments. Swedish orthopedic surgeons perform research to significantly improve patient care at Swedish, and throughout the nation with scientific publications. Information is gathered to monitor patient outcomes, treatment protocols, as well as long term treatment success. The research of our orthopedic surgeons has the potential to improve each facet of the orthopedic surgery experience and produce the best care for our patients at Swedish.
