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

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

very knowledgeable and caring. Readmore
Steve O | Oct, 2020

Margie B | Oct, 2020
A little back story to my incredibly amazing experience with OSS and Dr Garcia. I am a 43 year old Firefighter/Paramedic and an athlete, I injured my shoulder falling while snowboarding in march of 2020, I had a torn bicep and a slap tear in my left shoulder per my MRI. Readmore
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
S. Hardin| July, 2020
I am so grateful to Dr. Garcia. I was in a world of pain with a torn labrum and frozen shoulder. Dr. Garcia was able to help my life return to normal. The entire staff is professional, prompt, competent, and kind. I highly recommend
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.
