联合 Center was the first dedicated joint replacement center in the Pacific Northwest. 联合 Center and its surgeons, nurses and therapists are leaders in adopting the latest technology and recovery techniques for this rapidly changing area of medicine. 


One of the first to embrace computer-assisted surgery, 或中科院, 联合 Center reports on our results in a multicenter study. Read about our latest leap forward in robotic joint replacement which addresses a key issue in joint replacement: alignment. Poorly aligned joints are considered a major source of pain and implant failure. Using custom cutting guides based on pre-op computer evaluation of patients' knees, 威廉·巴雷特, MD, medical director for 联合 Center, was one of the early adopters of this advanced technology for joint replacement.

The 脊柱中心 brings together neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons who specialize in the treatment of upper back, lower back and neck injuries. One of the first groups in the Pacific Northwest to use vertebral disc replacement as an alternative to spinal fusion, our neurosurgeons are experienced in this advanced technique.

  • Decompressive laminectomies for stenosis
  • Laminectomies and discectomies for herniated discs
  • Posterior and anterior cervical fusions for disc problems
  • Single and multi-level disc replacement

In addition, the 脊柱中心 is one of the few medical centers in the Seattle area to offer cervical disc replacement as an alternative to spinal fusion. This procedure treats symptoms such as arm pain or weakness caused by degenerative disc disease in the neck, while preserving motion in the neck.
