Dr. Joel Weber is a fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in the care of athletes of all ages and abilities. He has extensive experience in the care of elite collegiate athletes around the PAC-12 conference, including the University of Washington, University of Arizona and University of Southern California. He uses this advanced training in surgical and non-surgical treatment techniques to treat complex sports related injuries as well as the full range of orthopedic issues involving the shoulder, knee and hip. He has a special interest in minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques of the shoulder, knee and hip.
I recognize physical activity as essential to the well-being of patients from all walks of life. My philosophy of care focuses on understanding how a patient's injury has affected their ability to stay active and creating an individualized treatment plan to return them back to the activities they love. No matter your sport or activity of choice, I am eager to get you back on track toward an active lifestyle.
I?m a native of Bellevue Washington and attended Eastside Catholic High School and college at the University of Washington. At UW, I pursued a major in neurobiology, graduated Magna Cum Laude, and was recognized as a Mary Gates Research Scholar. I was also highly involved with the sports medicine athletic training team responsible for taking care of the UW football athletes. With my interests in sports medicine and science colliding, and further fueled by my pride for the Huskies, I attended medical school at the University of Washington. I then embarked on a tour of the PAC-12 conference by completing an orthopedic residency at the University of Arizona and a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at the University of Southern California where I cared for many elite college athletes. My wife, daughter and black lab and I returned to the Pacific Northwest to practice orthopedics and enjoy all the area has to offer. When not in the office, I enjoy running, snowboarding, fishing, camping, boating, live music, and the ups and downs of being an avid Seattle sports fan.

Reviewed on April 29, 2019 Dr. Weber had excellent bedside manner.
Reviewed on April 12, 2019 I had completely lost my faith in the doctors around here. Dr. Joel Weber completely restored it (where he is concerned)! He came in, greeted me warmly, sat down and looked me in the eye. Then... he listened to me. Every word. He answered every question with clarity and with patience (I asked a lot). He showed me my MRI images (no other doctor in this area has done that with me). he pointed things out clearly, and answered my questions. We talked about options for treatment, and he even gave my ideas merit. It has been a long time since I've had a doctor willing to do these things. Also, when part of an exam caused a little pain... he backed off and asked if I was ok. He didn't treat me like an idiot. He is an incredible doctor. I highly recommend him!

Reviewed on December 3, 2018 Medication was not strong enough but that is because of what I told him! My fault not his.
