Other orthopedic services


Salem Health Orthopedics uses the latest equipment to diagnose orthopedic conditions and assess bone health. Our MRI technologists are certified by the American College of Radiology, as are the radiologists who read and interpret MRI results.

Our on-site imaging department eliminates the need to make a separate appointment or travel to another location for studies. At Salem Health Orthopedics, it’s possible to have your X-rays and see your doctor in the same day.



Our digital X-ray equipment delivers outstanding clarity and anatomic detail. Digital technology allows for much faster, more comfortable exams, while producing higher quality images to aid your doctor’s diagnosis. If you’re having an X-ray, you will most likely be asked to change into shorts. You can either bring a pair from home or a disposable pair will be provided for you.

For your convenience, x-rays are offered at both our Salem and Keizer locations.


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Salem health Orthopedics provides MRI scans to help identify injuries and conditions in your body. An MRI is a harmless, noninvasive test that uses a strong magnetic field and radio frequency waves to produce images of your body. The scans are safe and there is no radiation exposure.

Our GE Explorer MRI machine is less confining and more comfortable than traditional MRI. In fact, our entire MRI suite has been designed to make exams less cause for anxiety.

Additionally, our MRI machine covers a range of productivity enhancing applications including new features to increase patient comfort and reduce scan times. If necessary we are able to apply a metal suppression technique used on MRI-conditional metal implants. This improves visualization of soft tissue and bone surrounding the metal implant.

Please note MRIs require interpretation by a radiologist. Results are available within 24 to 48 hours.


Lab and EKG

Salem Health Orthopedics' Salem location offers on-site lab services for routine exams, such as blood work, EKGs and preoperative testing. Simply bring your doctor’s orders to our lobby or have them faxed to the lab at 503-561-4780. Test results will be sent directly to your doctor.

Lab hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed during lunch)

Physical therapy and hand therapy

The Salem Health rehabilitation team offers caring, comprehensive therapy services with highly-trained professionals who work with you to speed recovery and allow you to return to the things you enjoy doing most.

After an injury or surgery, we understand quality of life is often compromised by pain and limited range of motion. Our therapy professionals are trained to evaluate problems and design effective solutions to help you regain independence. We listen, ask the right questions, and identify the best possible pathways to help patients discover a new and improved version of themselves.

Services include:

  • Licensed physical therapy
  • Certified hand therapy
  • Post-operative recovery
  • Injury prevention
  • Sports medicine, including return-to-sport training and sport-specific strength and conditioning programs
  • Work injury recovery

To achieve optimal results, patient education is a key component of your care. Our licensed therapists dedicate enough treatment time to provide ample exposure to equipment and exercises, along with focused one-on-one guidance that expedites your recovery. As a result, our therapy visits can run longer than standard PT/OT appointments. It is this level of dedication that sets us apart and makes it possible for most patients to return to their previous level of function and activity.
