Founded in 1973, Valley Orthopedic Associates is one of the largest orthopedic practices in the Pacific Northwest, with more than 50,000 patient visits each year, and six orthopedic clinics. In addition to general orthopedics, VOA’s orthopedic doctors offer subspecialty care in spinal disorders and surgery, sports medicine, shoulder and hand conditions, foot and ankle disorders, joint replacement surgery, and occupational medicine.
VOA is a service of Proliance Surgeons, Inc. and provides a full spectrum of orthopedic care that includes a JCAHO-accredited outpatient ambulatory surgery center, a full-body MRI, digital radiography and bone densitometry.
Research is an important part of medicine that allows us to objectively evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments we recommend and deliver to our patients. For this reason, the VOA Research Foundation was formed as a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization.
In 2000, our association with Valley Medical Center led to the development of The Joint Center at Valley Medical Center, the first dedicated joint center in the Pacific Northwest and recipient of numerous awards. VOA orthopedic surgeons are active in the design and development of some of the most commonly used joint replacement components.
VOA’s spine specialists have also played an integral role in the development of The Spine Center at Valley Medical Center. The Center is dedicated to the care of patients undergoing cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine surgery.
