About Justin S. Roth


Justin Roth, DO is a fellowship trained, board certified pediatric orthopedic surgeon who treats a full spectrum of pediatric and adolescent orthopedic conditions and injuries. He specializes in scoliosis, hip preservation, cartilage and joint preservation surgery, and adolescent sports medicine with additional interest in limb deformity correction for congenital and post-traumatic deformities of the lower extremity, foot, and ankle. As part of his hip preservation and limb deformity practice, he cares for patients spanning from infants to young adults. 

Dr. Roth recognizes that children and adolescent’s growing bodies require specialized care, whether treating a fracture or a complicated medical condition. He enjoys talking to and interacting with patients and families to come to the best solution for their unique needs. Whenever possible he focuses on non-operative treatment options before recommending surgery. He is a member of the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America (POSNA), Pediatric Research in Sports Medicine (PRISM) and the International Society for Preservation of the Hip (ISHA) specialty societies and holds staff privileges at the Shriners Hospital in Portland, Oregon.

Dr. Roth’s research interests have focused on hip preservation in adolescents and young adults, scoliosis, hip arthroplasty and trauma. He has been a presenter on these topics at national and international conferences. In addition, he has also authored textbook chapters on hip preservation surgery and participated in surgical mission trips to Haiti, Dominican Republic, and the Grenadines. His educational and professional background includes seven years spent as a research and development engineer before returning to graduate school to study medicine. This combination resulted in multiple research grants and device patents. His engineering and medicine perspectives blend well allowing Dr. Roth to offer his patients the latest in evidence-based solutions for their unique situation.

In his free time, Dr. Roth enjoys backcountry skiing, golf, biking, travel, and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
