Access, answers and understanding:
The prescription for a better patient experience
When you’ve been injured, or are experiencing the work or lifestyle limitations that come with a nagging muscle or joint pain, you want to be examined by a specialist who can sort out the problem and put you on the road to recovery — the sooner, the better. And no referral is needed.
That’s exactly what Scott Marr, MD had in mind when he designed his orthopedic and sports medicine practice at Limber. Dr. Marr provides non-operative care and treatment for a broad range of sports injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
Most important, he is committed to seeing you quickly — usually within a few days — and giving you the one-on-one time it takes not only to get to the root of your injury or condition, but also to help you fully understand your diagnosis and treatment options. Together, you’ll then choose the customized recovery strategy that gets you back to the activities, or helps you achieve the functional goals, that are most important to you.
Diagnostics and Treatment Options
With extensive training in musculoskeletal ultrasound, in many cases Dr. Marr can use this technology to provide rapid and accurate diagnosis, while often avoiding expensive advanced imaging like MRI.
When developing a treatment plan, Dr. Marr will address underlying biomechanics, function and pain. Treatment options might include physical therapy, functional bracing, chiropractic or soft tissue work, injections, minimally invasive ultrasound-guided procedures or Orthobiologic regenerative treatments. Whatever the specific recommendation, the goal is always to help you choose the best option for your lifestyle and financial or insurance situation.
While his integrative approach always focuses on helping you avoid surgery, on the strength of 20-plus years practicing at a leading Portland area orthopedic practice, he can provide an expedited referral to a surgeon with a sub-specialty in your exact injury or condition.
Add it all together and it makes for a better patient-doctor experience where you’ll feel your concerns have been heard and you get both the answers and relief you’re seeking.

Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
This medical imaging technology uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other soft tissues in the body. It is a non-invasive and painless imaging technique that can provide real-time images of the musculoskeletal system in motion, which can be used to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions.
Orthobiologics + Procedure Appointments
Dr. Marr utilizes leading orthobiologic treatments which can promote healing, decrease inflammation, and repair damaged tissues often without the invasiveness of surgical intervention.
