Dr. Kelly McCormick joined Hope Orthopedics of Oregon in September 2012 after completing a prestigious Foot and Ankle Fellowship training program at The Campbell Clinic, University of Tennessee. He says he enjoys focusing on foot and ankle conditions because, “Your feet are what ground you. If you injure your feet, you lose that grounding. And when your feet hurt, it seems like everything else hurts. I really enjoy giving that base, that grounding, back to patients so they can quickly return to the activities that they love most.”

Trained in minimally invasive orthopedic procedures, Dr. McCormick is currently the first and only doctor in Salem doing procedures of this kind. These procedures are most effective for patients and reduce the amount of down time after surgery.

Dr. McCormick has published several articles in peer-reviewed journals and textbooks and is the principal designer of a line of specialty orthopedic surgical instruments. When he's not taking care of his patients, Dr. McCormick can be found traveling or foraging the Pacific Northwest forests for edible fungi with his family.
