Bone & Joint Surgeons and Care Providers
Dr. Seth Leopold
These fellowship-trained specialists include internationally recognized orthopedic surgeons Dr. Seth Leopold and Dr. Paul Manner, who recently moved their surgical practices from UW Medical Center to Northwest Hospital. Together, they have performed thousands of hip and knee replacements and other procedures, with excellent outcomes.
Dr. Seth Leopold specializes in surgical treatments for hip and knee arthritis. He is particularly skilled in minimally invasive methods of hip and knee replacement surgery, which can decrease postoperative pain and surgical risk and shorten the postoperative recovery period. Dr. Seth Leopold also is a professor in the Department of Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at the University of Washington, and recently was named the editor- in-chief of Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, one of the leading journals of his specialty.
“The patient with arthritis and I share a lifelong journey, and I hope to serve as guide, coach and cheerleader on that journey,” Dr. Seth Leopold says. “I care for my patients by actively listening and educating them about contemporary treatments.”
Dr. Paul Manner also specializes in joint replacement surgery, including minimally-invasive hip and knee replacement. His major interests include care and treatment of osteoarthritis. He sees patients for osteoarthritis (hip/knee); rheumatoid arthritis (hip/ knee); developmental hip dysplasia; metastatic disease to the hip/pelvis/knee; hip fracture; and meniscus tears in the knee. Dr. Paul Manner is also an associate professor of orthopedics and sports medicine at the University of Washington.
Dr. Paul Manner
“Many patients express interest in minimally- invasive approaches to hip and knee surgery,” Dr. Paul Manner says. “I believe this type of surgery, though technically challenging, offers many benefits to the patient, including less tissue injury, less post-operative pain, faster rehabilitation and a shorter hospital stay.”
Northwest Hospital’s joint replacement program also features award-winning inpatient care, including comprehensive rehabilitation therapy, which starts with individualized visits by licensed physical and occupational therapists while patients are still in the hospital and continues with outpatient physical therapy at the hospital’s Northwest Outpatient Medical Center.
