Where is your Pain?

Get to know your doc! Meet Dr. Michael Wright.

Dr. Michael Wright is a fellowship trained sports medicine orthopedist with expertise in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, hip and knee, total joint replacement of the hip and knee, and general orthopedics.

Dr. Wright was born and raised in Western Montana, living in Butte until 6th grade and then moving to Columbia Falls. After high school he attended MSU- Bozeman majoring in biochemistry followed by medical school, via the Montana WWAMI program at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He completed a 5 year orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Vermont, and then a one year sports medicine fellowship at UCLA.

A focus of his training was dedicated to learning minimally invasive hip arthroscopy. We are pleased to bring that specific skill set to the Missoula Bone & Joint team. Dr. Wright also treats injuries to the shoulder and knee, and fracture care. Because of his sports medicine fellowship at UCLA, and more specifically working closely with the LA Lakers players, he is passionate about providing superior orthopedic care to athletes who are passionate about returning to their sport.

Dr. Wright enjoys everything outdoors; hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing and kayaking. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 young children.

Dr. Wright is accepting new patients at Missoula Bone & Joint. To schedule your appointment please call MBJ Clinic at (406) 721-4436.
