  • I had a catastrophic leg break, and the first orthopedic surgeon I saw recommended amputation, "unless one guy in Salem is available to fix it." Dr. Pressman was that one guy. I can't thank him enough for fixing my leg and helping me keep my foot. He offered compassionate care throughout the whole process. I highly recommend him. - Thankful p. - 1/18/2020

  • Dr. Pressman saw me in the ER at Salem Hospital when I shattered my femur, including a spiral break. My husband and I were/are very impressed with him. We were told in the ER that if a person was ran over by a tank, Dr.Pressman could put you back together. - Anonymous - 3/19/2019 

Dr. David Pressman is a board-certified orthopedic trauma specialist and has been with Hope Orthopedics of Oregon since 2009. Dr. Pressman interned in Washington State at Madigan Army Medical Center and completed his fellowship training at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii as a member of the United States Army. He treats all types of orthopedic injuries, but specializes in orthopedic trauma, so if you're seeing Dr. Pressman it's likely you saw him in the hospital ER first.

When he's not taking care of his patients, Dr. Pressman enjoys spending time with his family, going to movies and listening to classic rock.
