Howard A. Chansky, MD

Dr. Chansky is a professor and vice chair as well as chief of orthopedics an sports medicine at UW Medical Center, and a specialist in hip, knee, and bone/soft tissue tumor surgeries.

Patient Care Philosophy:

My philosophy is to work with patients to provide the best possible personalized surgical care. If surgery is not the best option , I will help patients understand why and work with them to determine non-surgical options. Regardless of a patient's problem, the key to good patient care is to be a good listener.
