About me

Dr. Friess specializes in treating arm, leg and pelvic fractures. He has a special interest in treating fractures that have not healed correctly after treatment. He also does surgery for patients with bone infections and infected fractures, which can mean working with several specialists. He does research on the healing of broken bones and weight bearing after fractures. Dr. Friess enjoys developing relationships with his patients as they are healing and returning to regular activities.

During his spare time, Dr. Friess enjoys spending time with family, reading and gardening. He enjoys bicycling to work, but does not find the time as often as he would like.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
