Dr. Joel Weber is a fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in the care of athletes of all ages and abilities. He has extensive experience in the care of elite collegiate athletes around the PAC-12 conference, including the University of Washington, University of Arizona and University of Southern California.
He uses this advanced training in surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat complex sports related injuries as well as the full range of orthopedic issues. He has a special interest in minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques of the Shoulder and Knee.
A note from Dr. Weber:
I recognize physical activity as essential to the well-being of patients from all walks of life. My philosophy of care focuses on understanding how a patient's injury has affected their ability to stay active and creating an individualized treatment plan to return them back to the activities they love. No matter your sport or activity of choice, I am eager to get you back on track toward an active lifestyle.
I'm a native of Bellevue Washington and attended Eastside Catholic High School and college at the University of Washington. At UW, I pursued a major in neurobiology, graduated Magna Cum Laude, and was recognized as a Mary Gates Research Scholar. I was also highly involved with the sports medicine athletic training team responsible for taking care of the UW football athletes.
With my interests in sports medicine and science colliding, and further fueled by my pride for the Huskies, I attended medical school at the University of Washington. I then embarked on a tour of the PAC-12 conference by completing an orthopedic residency at the University of Arizona and a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at the University of Southern California where I cared for many elite college athletes.
My wife, two daughters, black lab and I returned to the Pacific Northwest to practice orthopedics and enjoy all the area has to offer. When not in the office, I enjoy running, snowboarding, fishing, camping, boating, live music, and the ups and downs of being an avid Seattle sports fan.
