The surgeons at Southern Oregon Orthopedics believe in working closely with and nurturing lasting relationships with our patients and their families, the community where we live and work, and other health care professionals throughout the Rogue Valley. Our physicians are active staff members at Rogue Regional Medical Center and Providence Medford Medical Center. We also perform surgeries at the Surgery Center of Southern Oregon. We also offer clinic hours in Brookings, Oregon making our combined 125 years of experience available to residents of the larger Southern Oregon region.

All SOO physicians are board certified and fellowship-trained.  Each focuses on an additional sub-specialty in at least one area, offering you access to a full team of specialized caregivers all under one roof.  We also have on-site physical and occupational therapies, to offer comprehensive care of injuries and post-operative recovery.
