“In practicing as a fellowship-trained sports medicine surgeon, I’ve devoted myself to helping restore form and function after injury for athletes and active people from all walks of life. My approach to treatment is patient-centered and compassionate care with shared decision-making between patient and surgeon, while providing patients with the most recent and leading-edge evidence-based medicine currently available.

I enjoy relationship-building with my patients and providing them with both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options to return them to the activities they love and enjoy. I also enjoy the responsibility of being a physician both inside and outside of the hospital and helping those in that capacity wherever and whenever I can.”

Dr. Blake Dowdle is available to see patients at our Eugene and RiverBend Pavilion locations.

“I did not have to wait. The staff at the front desk, the x-ray tech, and the medical support staff were warm, interactive, and took my questions seriously. Dr. Dowdle was attentive and answered my question fully.”
