PeaceHealth Medical Group expanded its orthopedic team with two new providers who specialize in orthopedic trauma, Michael Henry, MD and Laurie Verreault-Beauchesne, PA.

Michael Henry, MD, specializes in complex trauma, osteoporotic fractures and management and total joint replacement. He previously practiced in the South Puget Sound region before moving north to Bellingham.

Dr. Henry received his medical doctorate from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He completed his fellowship in Orthopaedic Trauma at the University of Edinburgh, in Edinburgh, Scotland. He’s treated a wide variety of traumatic orthopedic injuries and patients, ranging from NATO and Afghan military and civilian casualties to professional hockey athletes. With his international training and practice, Dr. Henry’s experiences in different health systems and cultures give him broad perspectives for fostering collaborative care.

“I strive to create a collaborative environment and establish a treatment plan that is unique for each patient,” he said about his approach to medicine. “I consider each individual’s lifestyle, goals and aspirations in order to achieve the best possible outcome and quality of life.”
