General Orthopedics with Interests in Sports Medicine & Knee Surgery


"I moved to Eugene for the schools, the people, the excellent medical community, and for the easy access to the outdoors. As I look back at these 'requirements,' I continue to marvel at and enjoy the opportunities we all have. To be able to contribute to the advancement of medical care in our community is a unique privilege. I've transitioned from being a runner to a cyclist and have become a connoisseur of Pinot Noir. It's hard to imagine living anywhere else."

"Amazing process of getting a total knee replacement. I was only in the hospital for two days, I was in no significant pain, and I was mobile!!! All of the nurses talked about how Dr. Walton’s patients are recover so fast. I can't thank him enough for giving me hope and for his amazing surgical technique." -- Mitchell B.
