JB. | June, 2022
Highly recommend Dr. Garcia. Complete hamstring avulsion (all three heads) due to hockey injury. 6 months later I’m back on the ice – as good as new.
Steve O. | May, 2022
69 year old man with rotator cuff tear / bicep tendon issue. 4 small insertion points in my right shoulder., surgery went as expected. Dr Garcia explained the procedure benefits / risks in detail before the surgery and fielded all my questions and concerns.
Kate M. | May, 2022
After years of dislocating my knee and experiencing pain/grinding under my kneecap I was referred to Dr. Garcia. At that point I had damaged the cartilage and required surgery. Luckily I was a candidate for the MACI procedure and Dr. G was able to fully replace the cartilage and correct my knee with a TTO. ,..
Loomis H. | April, 2022
I can’t say enough about how incredible my experience was with Dr. Garcia. Before recommending an MRI he had my injury figured out within a matter of minutes. He actually said he didn’t want to do surgery and recommended physical therapy as an alternative. Eventually I made my shoulder worse by boogie boarding in Hawaii and surgery was the next step. ,..
Marc St R | March, 2022
From the very first visit I could tell Dr. Garcia was at the top of his game. He discussed my options in a calm, confident manner, and didn’t immediately jump to recommending surgery for my recent shoulder injury – instead offering a clear course of action to try to rehabilitate with PT and exercise. Months later,..
Kimberly F | March, 2022
I had the pleasure of being recommended to Dr. Grant Garcia after years of wear and tear on my left knee Left me with two meniscus tears. My knee was painful, swelling, clicking, and locking up regularly after just minor activity. Dr. Garcia was very patient with me and explained all my options and the risks...
Hope M | March, 2022
Dr. Garcia was amazing. He and his staff made every step of the process okay and made sure we understood what to expect. He will forever be our go to.
Jerome C | March, 2022
In 2003 I had an ACL replacement and meniscus surgery from another surgeon which did not go so well. After 15 years or more of serious knee problems I was finally able to schedule another surgery and Dr. Garcia came highly recommended from another surgeon due to his skill and experience working on revision knee surgeries...
Anne W | March, 2022
Great experience with Dr Garcia and my rotator cuff surgery. I have a ton of confidence in his skills and he was able to repair my three severed tendons. I had hardly any pain after surgery (but of course, there is discomfort). He was very clear with me about the lengthy recovery time for shoulder surgery and I am progressing nicely after six months. More recovery to come – it is slow, but steady.
Jeremy I | March, 2022
From my ACL reconstruction to the Meniscus transplant, I was taken care of the whole way through. All of the information I was given was very straight forward and for my best interest. Dr. Garcia is not only amazing at his job, but he loves doing what he does. I would not be where I am without him, and his team. The difference in my life before the surgery and after is significantly different...!
Rylan P | Feb, 2022
So I have had the worst experiences in the past with doctors on several occasions, I hate needles and just do not like doctors in general..best way to put it. I hurt my knee 5 years back and never got it fixed or looked at because of the fear of knowing and doctors/bills on its own....!
Kimberly T | Feb, 2022
I am a healthy, active female, soon to be sixty six years old. During the spring season of 2021 I had a meniscus root tear in my left knee that I acquired while playing with my three year old grandson.!
Stephen S | Jan, 2022
Dr. Garcia is incredibly knowledgeable about my particular shoulder injury(torn labrum). I had the same surgery done years ago with a different dr on the other shoulder. The difference is night and day! I fully recommend him as a surgeon!
Henry G | Jan, 2022
Fantastic experience. Fixed my horrific meniscus tear.
Paul S | Jan, 2022
I have had multiple surgeries now at Seattle Orthopedic Center with three different surgeons. One left knee ACL and two on my right shoulder Subscapularis. All Dr’s have been extremely professional and at the same time, wonderful to talk to about my care. Most recently, I was referred to Dr. Garcia because I tore the same ligament in my shoulder that had been previously repaired and had limited options for repair and returning to my active life, which includes playing ice hockey.
Joe C | Dec, 2021
Dr Garcia is super friendly and helpful. Always takes some time to answer my questions about the two surgery’s I’ve had with him.
Harold A | Dec, 2021
Dr. Grant Garcia is an excellent doctor. I said that because before seeing Dr. Garcia I had 5 knee operations. I’m in my mid 30s and I was an athlete and have wanted to get back to being active (skiing, tennis, etc.). For years I have struggled with bone and cartilage damage in my knee. I had a significant Osteochondral Lesion as big as 30 millimeters.
Marie S | Dec, 2021
Dr. Garcia did an amazing job repairing our son Jacob’s torn labrum and bone spur in his throwing arm this past July. The guidance provided during his recovery was very clear and easy for a teenager to follow. We were surprised at the range of motion and how smooth his shoulder felt as he began physical therapy.
Jordan S | Nov, 2021
Dr. Garcia is an incredible talent. After having 4 other knee surgeries caused by countless basketball injuries, I thought knee replacement was imminent and I’m only 30! I had chronic patella instability and dislocations of my left knee, plenty of missing cartilage, and lingering pain. The other knee surgeons I’d seen never quite addressed my underlying issues.
MJ | Nov, 2021
Dr. Garcia is excellent! He performed a cadaver reconstruction of my ACL in conjunction with both lateral and medial meniscal root repairs that had previous meniscal surgery. He is an incredibly knowledgeable physician and talented surgeon.
Steven H | Nov, 2021
I went to 3-4 different surgeons and NONE of them had any idea how to give me relief from the pain in my shoulder (2 years visiting other doctors). I had one more chance. With my hopes really low. I found dr. García online. He’s the only doctor that had a huge history of complicated surgeries (many videos of successful operations).
Kenneth L | Oct, 2021
Dr. Garcia’s approach to rectifying the painful condition of my elbow left minimal scarring and healed faster than the traditional approach to the same type of procedure.
Bradly B | Sept, 2021
Dr. Garcia took a shoulder that didn’t work and gave me some freedom back. Sleeping better now and no longer in pain. He is down to earth, straight up with you and zero delays. He gets it done. Best experience I’ve had and I recommend doing everything through his clinic if your insurance will let you.
Andrew C | Aug, 2021
So I ended up tearing my bicep and Dr. Garcia performed the surgery. I couldn’t be happier with the results. The timeline he laid out for recovery pretty much went as expected. I couldn’t be happier with the results. My strength has really started to rebound and the symmetry in my arm looks identical to how it did before the tear.
Mary Danielle B | Aug, 2021
I was lucky to find Dr. Garcia after another surgeon diagnosed a meniscus root tear in my left knee. As an active hiker, equestrian & gym rat, it was really important to me that I work with someone who could get me back to the things that I love.
Jamie P | Aug, 2021
Dr Garcia went above and beyond in fixing my knee pain. I had seen 2 other orthopedic specialists who basically told me I just needed to deal with the pain. So I decided to do my research on ortho specialists, I came across Dr Garcia, who had outstanding reviews. Boy did God answer my prayers when finding Dr Garcia.
Nick B | Aug, 2021
Can’t rave enough about Dr. Garcia. Was having stability issues with my shoulder and saw multiple ortho surgeons. He stood out and garnered my trust right away. Had a latarjet procedure with him 6 months ago and as of today I’m cleared for full activity and good to go with no pain. If you’re having shoulder problems, see this man!
Drew C | Aug, 2021
I am almost one year post op from a very extensive knee surgery that Dr.Garcia performed. I came to see Dr. Garcia after having 5 knee surgeries, on the same knee, and I was still in so much knee pain.
Kevin M | Aug, 2021
Had biceps repaired in February by Dr Garcia and now have full use of my right arm without pain. Incision from surgery is very nearly invisible as Dr Garcia did an excellent job.
Beau B | Aug, 2021
I visited Dr. Garcia with a catch in my twice surgically repaired knee that was keeping me from cycling and skiing at the level I have enjoyed in my adult life. He was honest with me and we agreed therapy and supplements wouldn’t heal me.
Alex E | July, 2021
After a complete tear of the ACL and bucket handle tear of the meniscus, I thought my days of surfing and BJJ were over. During our first appointment, Dr. Garcia was honest about the severity of my injury, however – he was also very positive I would be back to doing my sports and in under a year.
Marissa B | July, 2021
I highly recommend Dr. Garcia and am so glad I found him. He made a huge difference in my recovery and care. He has meticulous attention to detail and goes above and beyond when considering what the best solution is for each patient. Readmore
Paul G| June, 2021
Dr. Garcia is an outstanding and very personable surgeon who’s superior capsule reconstruction of my left shoulder has yielded very positive results. I am very pleased with my experience.

Chris H| June, 2021
Dr. Garcia, is absolutely amazing, and he is helping me get my life back. I was in a serious motor vehicle accident June 2019. My vehicle had over $21,000 worth of damage, and I ended up with a bunch of injuries and a lot of pain in my knees. Readmore
Brigid S | June, 2021
I have been avid rock climber, mountaineer, and backcountry skier for over 20 years. In my youth I was a competitive distance runner. As a person who has been active her whole and life and still is, injuries happen. I have been seeing Dr. Garcia for years to treat my injuries. Readmore
Rob K | June, 2021
In 2010 I was involved in an accident while on duty as a peace officer that resulted in a complex knee injury. At the time, the ACL was the obvious injury and was replaced. In 2016, I suffered another injury where my ACL tore again due to my MCL being badly stretched or torn from the original accident. Readmore
Grace H | June, 2021
Dr. Garcia made me feel heard. I saw many doctors prior and not one
listened to me, made me feel crazy, and told me to lose weight. Dr. Garcia
not only helped me get better after several months, but also made me feel
comfortable and encouraged to fully recover. He made it easy to understand
what was going on and was incredibly patient. Would HIGHLY recommend.
Michael S | April, 2021
Dr. Garcia gave me the ability to walk/ run again. After 7 years of
hyperextension and constant pain, I’m living life to the fullest. THANK YOU.
Connor H | March, 2021
Highly recommend Dr. Garcia, have had multiple surgeries with him. all with
Kalina H | March, 2021
Dr. Garcia was very knowledgeable in what would be the best surgical option
for me for my ACL tear. I opted for a quad tendon graft, and the surgery
went flawlessly. Post op recovery went well, and any questions/concerns I
had, Dr. Garcia was available to answer. Readmore
David D | Feb, 2021
Dr. Garcia repaired my torn pectoralis major about a year ago. He was very knowledgeable and helpful discussing the injury and my options. With the tear being a time-sensitive issue, he had me in for surgery quickly, and repaired the area exceptionally well. I was back to sport as quickly as could be expected, and am feeling back to about 100% strength a year out. Very happy with the results from such a major injury. Would highly recommend. Readmore
Kelley S | Jan, 2021
July 2020 I had a patellofemoral replacement with Dr. Garcia. Dr. Garcia and his staff were excellent, providing amazing care from start to finish. After years of frustrating knee pain, I’m excited to get back to the
activities I’ve had to set aside. Readmore
Holly B | Jan, 2021

Kari S | Dec, 2020
Very grateful to have Dr. Garcia as my surgeon for reconstructing my clavicle. After hearing from two doctor’s opinions, Dr. Garcia made it clear why I was a good candidate for surgery based on my bone displacement and my active lifestyle. The surgery went smoothly and my scar is barely noticeable. After two months, I had full range of motion and pretty much returned to my same lifestyle. The plate and screws took a little getting used to, but without it who knows how my collarbone would be functioning today. I highly recommend visiting Dr. Garcia for your orthopedic needs, especially if you are an athletic individual. Readmore
Martin O | Dec, 2020
Dr. Garcia performed a Latarjet procedure on my shoulder. The procedure went very well and now my shoulder feels more stable than before the surgery. I’m back to work and feeling confident in my shoulder, which is extremely important in my line of work. Readmore
Zak B | Dec, 2020
It’s very simple, Dr. Garcia is the absolute best surgeon/doctor in the
country. He changed my life and gave me the freedom to enjoy fitness again. A few years ago, I began experiencing fairly extreme knee pain while doing
anything high impact. At the time, I was just 29 years old. After visiting 7 different doctors in the PNW, I was beginning to accept that knee pain
would just be a part of life. Readmore
Patt H | Nov, 2020

Grace H | Sep, 2020
I felt incredibly rushed and like I wasn’t being listened too. (i.e. tried physical therapy for my knee & had issues for 5 years….told to lose weight and physical therapy). So I tried seeing Dr. Garcia who was phenomenal in how attentive he was and how much he made me feel heard and validated my pain I had been experiencing. Readmore
N. Johnson | Aug, 2020
I’m a repeat patient for Dr. Garcia. Last year on a trip to Chicago I tore
my left meniscus root. Misdiagnosed by a local Orthopedist as a simple torn
meniscus, I sought out a 2nd opinion once I got back to Seattle. Dr. Garcia
reviewed the Chicago MRI and X-ray and clearly identified a torn meniscus
root that would require surgery. Readmore
J. Miner| Aug, 2020
After I suffered a severe knee injury as a result of a freak accident, Dr. Garcia performed surgery on my right knee to reattach my quadriceps tendon. I could not be happier with the results. Readmore

S. Fahey| July, 2020
I had ACL reconstruction and a patella tendon allograft performed by Dr. Garcia. Throughout the pre surgery appointments, surgery day and post surgery, he has been amazing and I’m healing very well, stronger than ever! He’s very
professional, knowledgeable, kind and positive. I’ve recommended him highly to some of my fellow tennis players who have injured their knees. Also, the staff at OSS have been nothing but pleasant and easy to communicate with
each time. Very thankful I found Dr. Garcia and OSS. Readmore

Dr. Garcia. It’s been a pleasure having a a very highly trained surgeon who has your back. Readmore
Cheryl W| July, 2020
Dr. Garcia is excellent ! My son (15) has OCD in his left knee which went incorrectly diagnosed for years. Dr. Garcia not only correctly diagnosed it, but very clearly gave us our options which we felt gave us the highest chance
of success in fixing this issue. The surgery and plan went great, my son is back to playing baseball but now with no left knee pain and we couldn’t be happier. Highly Highly recommend Dr. Garcia!
Clay W| June, 2020
Dr. Garcia is the best there is. He performed a complex 3 tendon repair on my rotator cuff where 2 of the tendons were completely detached, and I was in a lot of pain. He talked me through the procedure in detail, helped me understand
and prepare for recovery and made me feel like a rock star throughout. 5 months later, I am doing pushups and throwing a ball for my dog…things I couldn’t even do prior to surgery. My results were outstanding and exceeded my
most optimistic expectations. He has a fantastic manner and great personality, and clearly knows what he’s talking about. I wouldn’t see anyone else. The best.
Eddie Paltrineri| April, 2020
I highly recommend Dr. Grant Garcia at Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle for his high level of skill and expertise. He performed an intricate meniscal root repair surgery on my 55 year old knee, and I’m extremely pleased with my
outcome. Dr. Garcia is very professional and compassionate about his profession.
Anonymous | April, 2020
I highly recommend Dr. Garcia who repaired my ACL and Meniscal Root tear. He is very thoughtful and attentive and has provided great advice along the road to recovery. Following an ugly injury, my knee is now strong and flexible.
Michael R | March, 2020
I was at Seattle Orthopedic Center for an appointment for an assessment for a shoulder injury with another Surgeon who informed me that he was not going to be able to repair my shoulder as expected. After the initial shock of ”
you can’t fix my shoulder” sunk in I was informed that Seattle Orthopedic Center had a surgeon that could repair my damaged shoulder. That surgeon happened to be Dr. Grant Garcia, and over the course of a couple of pre-surgery
visits he gave me possible options; but more importantly I was very comfortable with Dr. Garcia’s degree of experience in preforming complex shoulder repair surgery. Readmore
Brown T | March, 2020
What he did for my shoulder was nothing short of miraculous. I have such great ROM now and am so grateful. He is a true professional. Readmore
Keithley S | March, 2020
I saw Dr. Grant Garcia for my left shoulder which was bone on bone and needed a replacement. I did my research and I am glad I did. He replaced my shoulder with a state of the art replacement called Simpliciti . It was stemless
which means he did not have to drill down into my bone and put a stem in. Less downtime and not as invasive. My surgery was a hard one and lasted 3 hours because there was no opening between the bones. He used his expertise
and he built up the socket and it was fixed. Physical therapy was on me as far as taking what he did and making it worked for me. Readmore
Bailey F | February, 2020
I had knee surgery on Feburary 19th, 2019 with Dr. Grant Garcia. I’m a mid twenties woman who tore her MPFL severely and it needed to come out and be replaced. Dr. Garcia was incredible through the entire process. He was very clear
with what was going to happen and how it was going to happen.My knee was pretty severely impacted and I ended up getting an MPFL reconstruction with a cadaver tendon and an Arthoscopy. Dr. Garcia and the entire staff made me
feel comfortable and calm through the entire recovery. Readmore
Amanda | February, 2020
Dr Garcia is amazing! I was referred to him by my physical therapist for my left meniscus when another surgeon said there was nothing that could be done and I need to just “grin and bear it”. Dr Garcia tried a cortisone shot and
more physical therapy. When that didn’t work he gave me the option of surgery to see what is actually going on. It turned out that my meniscus was very close to tearing and he was able to make the repair. He explains everything
in an easy to understand way and makes me feel very comfortable with what has been done and what to expect next. Everyone at his office is so helpful and nice. I have already told anyone who has knee or shoulder problems to
go visit him and I will continue to! Readmore
Renee G. | February, 2020
My 13 year old daughter had been having knee pain for over 5 years by the time we ended up in Dr. Garcia’s office. She is a dancer and her right knee would bother her while dancing. An MRI showed some patellar tendinitis. We had
already tried rest, PT, and oral steroids. Dr. Garcia was always very thorough with his exams. We decided to start with a cortisone injection. Unfortunately, this didn’t help. Readmore
Alicia J. | February, 2020
I had a very good experience with Dr. Garcia. My results were excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him
Sandra O. | February, 2020
I feel lucky to have had Dr Garcia for my shoulder injuries. After seeing the images on the MRI, and subsequent photos of the surgery, he did a beautiful job of repairing the tear on the cuff and relocating the biceps tendon – little works of beauty and skill! At the age of 75, this was a daunting surgery and recovery. He was very enthusiastic about getting me back to pain free yoga and swimming. He listened to all my concerns, and was patient and thourough in explaining everything. He recommended a top-notch physical therapist, and at the end of five months I am back to doing everything I want to do. I would say he’s the best surgeon and cheerleader for the proceedure anyone could want!
Sharon C. | February, 2020
I met Dr. Garcia when my shoulders were extremely painful and I needed to have both replaced. His care and concern for his patients is outstanding! He explained what he would be doing in surgery. He takes the time to listen to his patients and answers all questions. He is an excellent surgeon and I have had very good results with both shoulders! I highly recommend Dr. Garcia!!
Shawn I. | February, 2020
I waited five years to find a surgeon that could perform a complex reconstruction of my shoulder. I had superior capsular reconstruction performed by Dr. Garcia six months ago and the results have been amazing, both with respect to pain relief and improved function. I highly recommend Dr. Garcia.
Christina P. | January, 2020
If you have an orthopedic issue, go see Dr. Garcia! I have been to a lot of different ortho docs for a 13 year old knee injury before Dr. Garcia fixed it with a cartilage transplant (osteochondral allograft). He was the first doctor who offered to try something new (what a relief) because he is an incredibly talented surgeon and knew the latest research on treatment options and outcomes. Beyond his skill, I could actually see he how much he cared about whether my knee pain was gone and it finally is. All around, Dr. Garcia is one of the best!
Eric S. | January, 2020
Dr. Garcia understands both the physical and mental aspects of an injury to an athlete. He was able to reconstruct my ACL and provide me the resources needed to make a speedy and safe recovery. I have recommended him to friends who have similar operations and would go back to him in a heartbeat if needed.
Sara L. | December, 2019
Dr. Garcia did a meniscus root repair on my right knee in October 2019 and it has been the best outcome imaginable. I no longer have pain in my knee when sitting and walking. Dr. Garcia is the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever
been to and I highly recommend him. Readmore
Rebecca K. | November, 2019
Dr Garcia was awesome and did a fabulous job putting back together my multi fractured ankle. Everyone I encountered told me how hard it was to fix a fracture like I had and how good he was at those tough cases. I am thankful to
have had him as a surgeon and thankful I am walking like normal now! Thanks to Dr Garcia and all the fabulous people that helped me thru this at the clinic!! Readmore
Ellie M. | November, 2019
I can not say enough about what a wonderful doctor I have found in Dr Grant Garcia. I had had a full knee replacement back in February and developed a great deal of scar tissue immediately after my surgery. After months of physical
therapy my surgeon told me to give it a year and see how I was then. Readmore
Heidi G | November, 2019
Dr. Garcia is very knowledgeable and always willing to take time to answer questions. He explains everything In detail but always has time to answer questions. He has replaced both my shoulders and I’m very happy with the results!!
I would highly recommend Dr. Garcia!!!
Mick B | October, 2019
I’d highly recommend Dr. Garcia to anyone needing surgery and especially athletes. He understood from the get-go how important my activities & sports are to me and was attentive to my needs from diagnosis to 8 months post surgery.
My meniscus was described as “tattered” and Dr. Garcia’s work helped me get back to near 100% shape.
Valerie Z | October, 2019
Dr. Garcia changed my life! 22 years ago I sustained an injury that has caused me knee problems ever since. My knee pain had been getting increasingly worse over the past 5 years and was so bad that I had a hard time walking through
a grocery store. Every doctor I went to said that they had done all they could for me and I had to just live with the pain.
Steven S | September, 2019
I broke my glenoid cavity in my shoulder at work in March 2019. From everything I’d heard about shoulder surgeries, I never thought I’d regain my full strength or mobility. Dr. Garcia did an amazing job and I have 90% of my range
of motion back within 6 months. I can already lift up to 50 pounds with that arm and can see substantial progress week to week.
Christi G | September, 2019
Dr. Garcia is fantastic! Very courteous, thorough, and a fantastic surgeon. Very pleased with my outcome!
Gaylene J | August, 2019
My Physiatrist referred me to Dr. Grant Garcia for my shoulder pain I was having . MRI showed I needed surgery. I was so pleased with the professionalism and caring staff of OSS!! Such wonderful care I received from everyone .
I am so thankful for the incredible surgical skills of Dr. Garcia! I had not only a torn rotator cuff but also a detached bicep and am making the recovery from that thanks to Dr . Garcia and his surgical team at OSS. You and
your whole team have been a blessing for me! Thank you Dr. Garcia!
Fitzwilson | July, 2019
Our high school aged son experienced a sports-related elbow injury and we were referred to Dr. Garcia for evaluation. From our very first appointment, Dr. Garcia was extremely patient, caring and detail oriented in his communications with us. He even took the time to call my husband, who was out of town, during one of our appointments to update him on our son’s treatment options. We decided to have a modified UCL surgery (a newer approach for non-throwing athletes, in lieu of the typical TJ surgery).
Susan H | June, 2019
Dr Garcia is great! My shoulder looked like someone put a golf ball in it. He gave my an injection to reduce the swelling and decrease the pain but, after the MRI, he said I needed surgery. I put it off six months, thinking I could fix it myself with massage and PT. When I finally agreed to have the surgery, I was freaked out that it was a lot bigger than I had imagined- rotator cuff repair, biceps tendon repair etc. Dr. Garcia did a marvelous job. It was arthroscopic- you can't even see the scar. My shoulder feels better than it has in years. Thank you, Dr. Garcia, for helping me get back to enjoying my life!
Natalie B | May, 2019
Dr. Garcia was amazing when I had to undergo both ACL and Meniscus surgery.He was caring, detailed and helped expedite the process when I was under tight time constraints. Would highly recommend his services, and the OSS team!
Susan K | May, 2019
I had a long overdue shoulder replacement about 6 months ago. The surgery went smoothly as did my recovery. My doctor was excellent and by following the details of my physical therapy and directions of my doctor I can now move my arm around freely without pain and only need to continue strengthening.
Donnett B | April, 2019
I am very grateful that Dr. Garcia is my doctor! I was told there was nothing short of a shoulder replacement to address my shoulder injuries.He assured me he would have a plan to help me. Dr. Garcia makes it clear that he was working with ME to help ME and not just performing a surgery.
Washington Girl | March, 2019
I fell from my stairs to my sidewalk on my right shoulder. Dr. Garcia accurately accessed the critical condition of my injury. Surgery was scheduled in 2 weeks and with Dr. Garcia skill completely repair the damage to my tendons and ligaments.
Eosh S | February, 2019
Grant was terrific and for the first time in 15-years, I can move my leg without hearing clicking and without feeling any pain in my knee.
Ruben ElRey | February, 2019
Dr. Garcia is a great surgeon and did a wonderful job on my knee, he is very polite and good at what he does. Strongly recommend him if you’re looking for a surgeon.
Kit Warfield | February, 2019
Dr Garcia is fantastic – really really knows his stuff, and how to explain it to you, the patient. I am able to use my shoulder again after Dr Garcia performed a Superior Capsular Reconstruction on it.
D. Johnson | January, 2019
Working construction in July 2018, I ruptured my bicep tendon. The normal complete rupture, allows the tendon to move 2 to 3 cm (1 inch). Mine retracted 10 cm (4 inches).
Jodie L | January, 2019
Dr Garcia performed surgery on my knee which had a torn meniscus, wedged in the tibia. From the initial consult to the follow-up appt., Dr Garcia was professional, informative and personable. I was pleasantly surprised how seamless the entire surgery and recovery went. I was comfortably walking in three days! Thank you so much
Scott M | January, 2019
Thank you!!! My bike ride got interrupted by a car and all of a sudden I was at Harborview for the rest of the weekend. Wonderful care and wonderful people. I couldn’t more strongly recommend Dr Garcia and the entire team.
