Joint pain can affect all aspects of your life. We're here to help, with a coordinated approach to getting you back on track with treatment, education, family involvement and group interaction.


Coordinated, comprehensive care

Whether you need pain management, physical therapy or surgery, we're with you every step of the way from diagnosis to recovery. In addition to our patient services, Legacy offers a number of free classes on orthopedic and sports medicine topics. Check out our current schedule 


The latest in robotics


Legacy Meridian Park and Legacy Salmon Creek are the only hospitals in the region using the innovative robotic MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing. This technology gives our surgeons advanced precision to replace only the damaged aspects of the knee. Advanced precision means a more minimal surgery, reduced pain and rapid recovery - sometimes ideal for the younger patient who wants to remain active.

Earning a mark of distinction
