Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle Opens Practice on Mercer Island

On July 10, 2010, Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle (OSS) opened an office on Mercer Island. Two orthopedic surgeons from the practice, Charles Peterson II, MD and Wayne Weil, MD – both residents of Mercer Island – will have weekly office hours on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

The only orthopedic group on the island, Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle-Mercer Island offers sports medicine, general orthopedic and fracture care, hand and wrist surgery, and minimally-invasive and arthroscopic joint reconstruction and replacement. The new office joins two other OSS Seattle locations in Ballard and Wallingford.

The new office on Mercer Island is located at 7707 SE 27th Street, Suite 104 (next to Walgreens in the Qliance office).

Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle (OSS) is a full-service orthopedic practice with offices in Ballard, Wallingford and Mercer Island. OSS specializes in the treatment of injuries and conditions of the hip, knee shoulder, hand and wrist, foot and ankle. The group also provides arthroscopic procedures, joint replacement, and fracture care. Patients have access to some of the latest advances in orthopedic care, including minimally-invasive joint replacement procedures that help speed patient recovery. Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle’s main facility, Seattle Orthopedic Center, is equipped with MRI, a fully accredited ambulatory surgery center, and physical therapy.

Formerly Ballard Orthopedic and Fracture Clinic, the group became Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle in 2007. Today, OSS consists of six board-certified orthopedic surgeons, Philip Downer, MD, Jon Franklin, MD, Charles Peterson II, MD, Joel Shapiro, MD, Michael Watt, MD, and Wayne Weil, MD. In September, Scott Ruhlman, MD, will join the group. The clinic also has four dedicated physician assistants on staff.
