A major injury like a torn rotator cuff, broken bone, or damaged tendon can be life-altering. Our goal at The Everett Clinic is to make the recovery as easy and supportive as possible.
“What really differentiates us is our collaborative, integrated approach. Our doctors, physical therapists and nurses all work together for our patients,” said Theresa Amick, Orthopedics Operations Director. “We are really a one-stop-shop for patients.”
The Orthopedics team is typically treating arm and leg bone, muscle, ligament, joint, and tendon injuries. So that means they must be experts in hip, rotator cuff and knee replacements, joint disorders, ACL reconstruction, shoulder arthroscopy, and sports injuries.
“We do it all,” said Dr. Paul Reynolds, Orthopedics Medical Director in Edmonds. “Our team is really intent on doing what’s best for patients and relying on evidence-based practices.” That also includes using innovative techniques and technology, such as robotics and high-definition scopes.
The Orthopedics team is a diverse mix of young and experienced providers who specialize in a wide range of orthopedic injuries. This diversity gives patients the opportunity to find the right provider and care team for their specific injuries. Orthopedics recently added three new physicians — Dr. Jason Codding, shoulder specialist, Dr. Craig Pastor, hand specialist, and Dr. Andrew Pastor, shoulder and elbow specialist.
“We have some highly educated and trained surgeons in our group from across the country,” said Reynolds. “It’s a nice mix of experience and enthusiasm. They bring skillsets that are some of the top in the nation.”
Providing the highest quality care is the goal of all providers on the Orthopedics team. The physicians, surgery team, physical therapists, and nurses all collaborate to develop the best treatment plan and closely track patients through the recovery process. Physicians focus on discussing the best treatment options with patients, working to avoid surgeries if possible and relying on physical therapists to rehab injuries
“We involve our patients in the process and ensure surgery isn’t our only tool in the toolbox,” Reynolds said. “That gives them comfort and gives them an active role in the treatment process.”
