About Our Orthopedic Doctors
Our orthopedic doctors are dedicated to providing you with the absolute highest level of care. That is why all doctors at OSC are specialized and fellowship-trained. OSC is the only orthopaedic clinic in the Inland Northwest with this distinction.
What Does Fellowship-Trained Mean?
Fellowship training is unique, focused training in addition to typical residency requirements. Becoming an orthopaedic surgeon is a long journey. The entire process takes 13 years: 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 5 years of residency. Those who are accepted to a subspecialty fellowship program perform an additional year of specialty training in a specific field of orthopaedic surgery to hone their skills. There are fellowships in all areas of orthopaedics: sports medicine, hand, foot and ankle, total joints, etc. Each doctor at OSC is required to achieve this highest level of specialization.
Our team of orthopedic doctors is also supported by our talented physician assistant, Matt Sutter, PA-C.
