designed a large-scale piece in basalt stones with bronze inlays that is an artistic interpretation of a spine when viewed from above. And artist Debbie Young of Ellensburg, Wash., created 10 four-foot by four-foot panels out of terrazzo from the former building on site that resembles a spine.

Orthopedics Background

The work of orthopedic physicians and surgeons involves the body's entire musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic problems may be congenital or degenerative, or caused by accident and overuse.

Swedish has a 99-year history of high-level orthopedic and spine care and does more than 5,000 orthopedic-related surgeries each year. That includes 2,200 joint replacements and 1,800 spine cases.

"After C-sections, joint replacement surgery is the highest volume inpatient procedure that most large medical centers perform," said Dr. Crutcher. "It's a proven and predictable clinical process with reliable outcomes."

In addition, there are new developments in spine treatments on a regular basis. "Advancements in minimally invasive spine surgery, the use of artificial discs, pain management, and patient education are really helping provide patients access to a new and more comprehensive level of care," said SOI-affiliated physician Jeffrey Garr, M.D., who specializes in spine surgery.

At SOI, multidisciplinary treatment teams provide comprehensive, personalized care for patients from diagnosis and treatment through recovery. Teams are led by orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists (physicians specializing in rehabilitation), orthopedic nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and coordinated-care specialists.

Depending on a patient's individual needs, the treatment team may also include physicians and professionals with other special training, such as cardiologists, internal-medicine physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons or pain specialists.
