About

Otoño Silva, MD

Otoño Silva, MD, founder of Interventional Orthopedics of Washington in Bellevue, Washington, is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and fellowship-trained in Interventional Orthopedics which is a specialty focused on non-surgical regenerative injection therapies, including image-guided prolotherapy, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and Stem Cell Therapy for orthopedic or musculoskeletal applications. Dr. Silva is a true believer in the power of the advanced non-surgical cellular medicine techniques he offers at his clinic, and he optimizes his own joint health following the same protocols he recommends to patients so that he may continue to enjoy participating in his favorite activities such as snowboarding and hiking for many years to come.

Dr. Silva has a passion for developing a partnership with his patients to work towards their optimal health with an integrative approach. He was inspired to pursue medical school after he received a personal regenerative medicine injection treatment many years ago to avoid a recommended surgery, and astonishingly he never saw the problem return. 

He went on to complete a residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, followed by a fellowship at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic, the International HQs of Regenexx, where orthopedic stem cell injections were invented, making him one of the most uniquely trained and highly skilled experts in the field. 

 

Since starting his own independent clinic in Washington, Dr. Silva continues to expand his skills and knowledge by conducting research in interventional orthopedics to advance the field and provide education and training to patients and other practitioners alike. He also instructs courses for the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation (IOF) around the country to share his advanced knowledge and pass these skills on to other qualified physicians.

Dr. Silva hosted and instructed the first-ever Interventional Orthopedics Foundation course outside of the organization’s HQ in Colorado at his Bellevue clinic in September 2019.
