Northwest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine

About Our Practice

Northwest Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, a department of Kalispell Regional Medical Center, is an orthopedic surgery practice affiliated with Kalispell Regional Healthcare. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained surgeons provide a broad spectrum of comprehensive orthopedic specialty care. We are located in The Rock medical office building adjacent to Kalispell Regional Medical Center.

Services Provided

Orthopedic care covers the medical and surgical problems of the musculoskeletal system of all ages including fractures, soft tissue injuries of ligaments and tendons, arthritis and other joint problems, bone and joint infections, and sports-related problems. We provide emergency orthopedic care for the trauma service, the emergency room and hospital inpatients on request, providing 24-hour coverage every day. We offer scheduled appointments with any of our surgeons during regular office hours. Urgent orthopedic care is provided by our physician assistants teamed with our surgeons during regular office hours. This allows work-up and treatment to be started before a routine office visit normally would be available.
