More About Our Services
Through a contract with Seattle Public Schools, we provide athletic trainers to seven high schools. Our trainers are licensed and certified and have master's-level training. They provide sport-specific training and conditioning programs for high-school athletes, as well as injury care at games.
We are a leader in researching and developing treatments that correct foot and ankle deformities, sometimes without using major surgery.
The Fracture Program serves children and teens who have fractures, growth-plate damage or other serious injuries. We’re experts in the ways that injuries and injury treatment are different for young people than for adults.
Our team includes doctors who treat hand and arm defects and injuries in children and teens. We perform both microvascular and general hand and arm surgery.
We have the knowledge and experience to provide expert orthopedic care, including the treatment of complex fractures. When surgery is needed, we use techniques that limit the risk of injury to growing bones.
We are the region's premier team for evaluating concussions and brain injuries and providing the right treatments to keep young athletes safe and healthy.
Our team is known nationally for treating all kinds of spine problems in children and young adults. Our surgical spinal cord monitoring team leads the country in developing new techniques for making back surgery safer.
Sports Medicine Program
Our team of experts works together to get young athletes back in the game. In addition to surgical and nonsurgical options, we offer injury prevention services, physical therapy, rehabilitation, imaging, complementary medical treatment and sports nutrition.
We provide sports physical therapy for school-age children and teens at four locations, including our main campus in Seattle, our clinic in Federal Way, our new clinic in Mill Creek and the new 2,500-square-foot sports gym at our Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center.
Young athletes will be evaluated in action – playing ball sports, running or using a stationary bike or free weights – by experts who understand the special needs of growing bodies.
In helping your child recover from a sports injury, our physical therapists have two main goals: to safely return your child to sports and to prevent future injury.
