Areas of Innovation

Dr. Welton is dual fellowship-trained in sports medicine and hip preservation surgery. She is one of the very few surgeons with specialty training in hip arthroscopy and the evaluation, work-up, and both surgical and non-surgical management of hip-related injuries. She is the first surgeon to bring post-less hip arthroscopy to Washington State and has published and presented internationally on the utilities of this method of hip arthroscopy.
