Tri-City Orthopaedics (TCO) is celebrating 50 years of providing care to the Tri-Cities and Mid-Columbia region. Since 1967, TCO has offered their patients an all-encompassing plan of treatment to help them return to the activities they love. TCO’s nine board-certified physicians utilize cutting-edge equipment and procedures to provide orthopaedic evaluation and diagnosis, and surgical and non-surgical treatment in all areas of orthopaedics.

After many years of expansion and growth at its original Richland location, TCO has expanded to a second medical center in Kennewick. Both locations feature adjacent MRI imaging machines, ambulatory surgery centers and physical therapy clinics.

Most recently, TCO has specialized their Richland campus to focus on spine and pain care. The aptly named TCO Spine and Pain Center reflects a focused approach to patient care, and TCO, as a whole, offers a comprehensive and clinically diverse set of physicians, diagnostics and services.

TCO believes in the importance of giving back to the community beyond the clinic. They have supported local high school and professional sports teams, community activities and initiatives, and local charities. Last year, TCO employees volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, donated to the Tri-City Union Gospel and collected toys for the Eagle 106.5 Annual Classic Rock Mornings Toy Drive. They look forward to continuing their partnership with these local organizations and recently donated 60 trauma kits to the Benton County Sheriff’s office. They also look forward to continuing as the team doctors for the Tri-City Dust Devils and all athletes around the Mid-Columbia region.

TCO’s mission is “to provide first-class musculoskeletal services to the local community in a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment; one in which they would be happy to treat their own families.” Their patients are family; they have been for 50 years and will be for many more to come.
