Andrea Young, MA

“Helping patients get back to what they love to do is why I went into the field orthopedics. It is my job to help people better understand what might be going on and educate them on what treatment options they have. My role is prevent injury when possible, but when it does occur help patients recover.”

Dr.Young and her husband have three active sons. After her orthopedic training in Cleveland and a Sports Fellowship at UCLA, Dr. Young and her family moved back to Washington state. Raised in the Pacific Northwest, they are happy to be able to raise their family here and all that it has to offer. In between running her boys to soccer games or swim meets, Dr. Young enjoys hiking, kayaking skiing and spending time with her family.

As a student athletic trainer for the University of Washington, as well as coverage of teams at UCLA and in Cleveland, Dr. Young has cared for athletes of all ages and abilities. She has covered local high school and college teams throughout her career. She is an active member in the Arthroscopy Association of North America and volunteers her time with OHSU orthopedic residents as well as Family Medicine residents of Southwest Washington. She is currently in the process of obtaining her Healthcare MBA from OHSU and Portland State University.
