Whether you suffer from arthritis, joint pain, back pain or another kind of orthopedic concern, getting on the road to feeling better is critical. In the Skagit Valley, that road leads many people to Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics. Since 1967, their physicians have been taking care of patients at their offices in Mount Vernon and Anacortes. The two Skagit orthopedic groups joined in 2014 to become Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics.
Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics provides surgical and non-surgical intervention for any number of shoulder, knee, spine, foot, ankle or hand or wrist conditions. They also offer physical therapy, provide in-house x-ray and MRI imaging services, and have a strong affiliation with Anacortes’ Island Hospital.
“We can accurately diagnose you and offer you the treatment that you need,” says Dr. Herbie Yung, a physiatrist who has been with Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics since 2018.
The practice has 10 doctors, including orthopedic surgeons, a podiatrist and two physiatrists. The latter provide non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal issues including back pain, neck pain, joint arthritis, fibromyalgia and other pain-associated conditions.
Orthopedic Doctors Provide Options
Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics offers comprehensive treatment of your musculoskeletal system, from your bones and joints to your tendons and nerves at all four locations.
Whether you need occupational medicine to keep healthy and safe at work, or physical medicine and rehabilitation to help recover the abilities and quality of life you desire following injury, Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics provides the best outpatient care possible.
Physical Therapy in Mount Vernon and Anacortes
At its physical therapy clinics in Mount Vernon and Anacortes, patients of all ages and activity levels are treated with programs including therapeutic exercise, patient education and hands-on treatment techniques.
If you suffer from pain affecting your back, neck, arms or legs, the clinic can help diagnose, evaluate and treat this pain through a combination of physical and psychological therapies.
And if surgery is required, the Mount Vernon-based Ambulatory Surgery Center provides outpatient surgery, where patients are admitted and released from care on the same day. Comfort and safety are top priorities, but the convenience and affordability of Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics’ surgery center saves patients money on otherwise potentially-expensive hospital stays.
Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics also takes nearly all types of insurance, though Dr. Yung says you should always check your insurance plan’s rules on treatment. Some require a referral from a primary care physician, while others may not.
All Proliance Surgeons Skagit Northwest Orthopedics locations are open Monday – Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
