The All-Star Patients Program at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates

The All-Star Patients Program at Oly Ortho highlights our patients after successful diagnosis and treatments of their injuries.

We know that our patients have accomplished incredible things after being treated at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates – whether it be getting back to sports, biking, hiking, the gym or getting back to family activities. We want to share your success stories as part of our Oly Ortho All-Stars Patients Program!

For years, patients throughout the area have trusted Oly Ortho with their orthopaedic and spine care – Let’s highlight Your Life In Motion!

We look forward to sharing the successes of our incredible patients on the Oly Ortho Facebook and Instagram pages to help inspire others in the community. If you want to be featured as an Oly Ortho All-Star, simply tell us your story in 200 words (or less) and send us a photo of you participating in your hobby or sport to go along with it. Then, we can share your inspiring story with other people who may be struggling with pain or injuries.

If you would like to submit your Oly Ortho patient experience in 200+ words and 1-2 photos, please email our Marketing Team at [email protected] and we will work with you on your featured All-Star story.
