Dr. Knight is rated one of Salem, OR's three best orthopedics providers on Three Best Rated.
Dr. Knight is a Northwest native, growing up in Redmond, Washington. He left the Seattle area to pursue his education at Brigham Young University where he was an engineering major. This was followed by graduate work in Biomedical Engineering at Arizona State University before starting medical school.
His medical training took him to New York State for most most of a decade including four years of medical school at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx and five years of orthopedic training in the SUNY at Buffalo program.
He then moved to Texas for an additional year of fellowship training focused on hand surgery at the Hand Center of San Antonio.
In 2009, he was thrilled to return to the Northwest with his family to practice at Hope Orthopedics in Salem, Oregon. Outside of practice, he stays busy playing tennis and keeping up with his wife and 6 children as well as serving as a youth leader in his local church congregation.
The hand and wrist are composed of a complex mechanical system of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Optimal treatment of such a complex system requires dedicated training and practice. Dr. Knight's engineering background coupled with his orthopedic training in bone and joint conditions and biomechanics, coupled with his additional sub-specialty training specifically in treating conditions of the hand and wrist, provide a unique perspective on how this system works. He aims to use these expertise to provide the best technical care while maintaining a teamwork approach to treating your condition. You are an integral part of the team and he values your participation in the decision-making process. Often your care will also involve a Certified Hand Therapist who has been specifically trained in non-operative and post-operative treatment of hand and wrist conditions. Physician's assistants (PAs) and medical assistants (MAs) are also an integral part of the team, working with Dr. Knight and you in the office to provide information and help coordinate your care. Working together will restore maximum function to your hands and wrists.
