Meet The Doctor

Dr. Miguel A. Schmitz, MD

About Dr. Schmitz

Dr. Schmitz moved to the Northwest early in his career as he completed his undergraduate studies in Biology and Chemistry at Carroll College in Helena, Montana in 1982. His training for medical school and orthopaedics has directed his career throughout the country as he sought the best training in orthopaedics, sports medicine, arthroscopy and spine surgery. After eleven years in private practice and a previous orthopaedic sports medicine fellowship in New York, he performed a one year comprehensive spine surgery fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, both healthcare partners of the Harvard Medical School. With dual fellowships in surgical sports medicine and spine surgery, Dr. Schmitz is happy to offer his services in these disciplines for patients from the Inland Northwest.
