Spokane Bone and Joint Center

Timothy Lovell, MD, performs a direct anterior total hip arthroplasty (a minimally invasive hip replacement) at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center's Bone and Joint Center.

The Bone and Joint Center at Sacred Heart Medical Center offers a specialized approach to your orthopedic surgery and care needs. With nearly 50 orthopedic doctors, surgeons and specialists, we can provide bone and joint care for patients young* and old, from Eastern Washington, North Idaho and Montana, for planned and unexpected orthopedic events.

Our 69-bed Spokane orthopedic hospital unit is staffed with registered nurses and nursing assistants with specialty training in all aspects of orthopedic care. A small number of our beds can be used for complicated ear, nose and throat, and reconstructive plastic surgery patients.

*Young orthopedic patients receive surgery and treatment from Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.
