If you have arthritis, an osteoporosis-related fracture or other condition of the hip and knee, the UW Medicine Hip & Knee Center at Northwest Hospital is one of your best sources for expert joint repair, replacement and treatment services in the region. The UW Medicine Hip & Knee Center provides high quality, state-of-the-art, safe and efficient surgical care for simple and complex disorders of hip and knee joints, from diagnosis through rehabilitation.
Our team of fellowship-trained, board-certified UW Medicine orthopedic surgeons has performed thousands of hip and knee replacements, geriatric fracture repair and other procedures, with excellent outcomes.
Following surgery, hip and knee patients receive comprehensive rehabilitation therapy, which starts with individualized visits by licensed physical and occupational therapists while still in the hospital and continues with outpatient physical therapy at the hospital’s Northwest Outpatient Medical Center facility.
