“I use every possible means to keep people walking into their later years. An active life on your feet exercises the engine that keeps you going. I really enjoy treating everything, whether it is a newborn pediatric deformity, an ingrown nail, a painful bunion or an arthritic ankle that needs replacement. It is still exciting to see people smile after more than twenty years in practice as they conclude treatment walking pain free.” – Dr. Yearian

Philip Yearian, a partner at Puget Sound Orthopaedics, is a board-certified surgeon specializing in the lower extremity treatment of the foot and ankle. He believes that staying on the forefront of treatment involves educating his patients, which leads to better outcomes.

While competing as a Division I Track and Field athlete in the 3000 meters Steeplechase and Cross Country at the University of Portland, his own injuries introduced him to some of the very treatments he uses today to get patients back on their way to a non-painful walk or ultra-marathon.

His training involved specializing in both bone and plastic reconstructive surgery. After over twenty years in practice in Gig Harbor and Tacoma, Dr. Yearian has improved some of these very techniques, which now allow some patients to shorten their recovery and return to play or work sooner.

Dr. Yearian coaches basketball at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School. He also enjoys running marathons, skiing, traveling and teaching for the Franciscan Foot and Ankle Reconstructive Residency program.
