I was All League outside line backer for Skyview high school 2011-2014, in my last regular season game of my senior year before we went to the state quarter finals I blew out my knee. My MCL, PCL, and posterio corner of my meniscus had to be reconstructed. Not only was this a blow physically, but mentally as well. I went from thinking I was invincible to not being able to do what I loved, playing football or any sports for that matter. I saw a different Doctor in Texas at first who at the time I thought was amazing. He was the U.S ski team's surgeon, so I was ecstatic I had the opportunity to go to him. I was very wrong. My knee was in constant pain after the surgery for an entire year. Constantly grinding and popping every step I took. My motivation was at an all time low. When I moved back to Vancouver, Washington I met up with doctor Ellis and He went in and made my knee feel practically good as new. My biggest regret was not going to Dr. Ellis in the first place. It is amazing what the man can do. He fixed my knee, which in turn has given me new opportunities in life, and has increased my quality of life ten fold. I would recommend him to anyone with any knee or shoulder issues as he is extremely well-versed in both practices. I am proud to announce I will be playing football at MT. San Antonio Junior College this fall and it is 100% because of Dr. Ellis. Very excited to show him my progress in the future! Thank You again!!
Thank you Dr. Borus and team! I practiced physical therapy for 16 years and live in southern Oregon and had been postponing much needed total knee surgeries for the last five years. I am only 58 and the research I did indicated that the custom Conformis implant would give me the best chance of long term success. Dr. Borus came highly recommended so I had the surgery in June 2014. He exceeded every expectation from the the lengthy initial appointment to the surgery, to the many follow up appointments. I am 11 months post op and have no pain on standing whatsoever. I have several friends who had this surgery at other places around the country and I feel so fortunate to not have any of the issues that they are having. It has not been easy, but I plan to have my other knee done soon by Dr. Borus and have sent everyone I know looking for an orthopedist his way. The Salmon Creek Hospital is stellar with one of the lowest infection rates I have seen, not to mention top knotch care. This is very high praise coming from a former physical therapist. Thank you Dr. Borus!

I took my son to Dr. Wong for a broken finger that needed to be surgically repaired. He was amazing with my son (who has Autism and is not always the easiest to deal with)! He answered all of my questions with patience and understanding that I was a mother worried over her son and what he would be going through. Dr. Wong made sure we were comfortable with everything and he has been amazing in his follow-ups with us! I can't imagine going anywhere else or having another doctor! Thank you for everything, I really appreciate all of the effort you made to make me happy!!
Thanks to Dr. Jacobs for repairing my rotator cuff from a fall. They have made a world of difference in my life.

I had my left knee replaced at 51 due to a college soccer injury. I was told when I was 27 that I would someday need a total knee replacement. I waited many years until the process was perfected and they lasted.
Being sports minded, I wanted a physician who worked on athletes and my research led me to Dr. Roberts.
It's been four years and the recent check up showed the knee is still in great shape, after:
3 - Seattle to Portland Bike Rides
1 - 110 Mile back packing trip with the scouts
6750 Miles total biking
1 - 11 day expedition Into the Grand Canyon
Get your self fixed and engage life!
