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. Six month post op with physical therapy I am completely recovered and I am totally satisfied with his assessment and skill as a surgeon. I am 65 years old.

I was referred to Dr Garcia for an Achilles detachment and he had been amazing. He’s incredibly friendly and calming and eased my anxiety about having surgery. After hearing horror stories of the recovery time from other people, I was very happy to have been able to be back to almost normal far more quickly than I had anticipated. I would highly recommend Dr Garcia, and in fact I already have.

Dr 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.
I knew at my first appointment that I was going to be in safe hands, and felt reassured that I would be well looked after.
The surgical procedure (meniscectomy) went very well and I am extremely grateful to the Orthopeadic Specialists of Seattle for doing their very best.

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.

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. My rotator cuff was beyond conventional repair, but this saved the day. This procedure is fairly new, but Dr Garcia is a seasoned pro at it, and I’m so grateful to be a recipient of his talent, knowledge, and expertise. He’s very enthusiastic and focused. Thanks, Dr Garcia!

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). The second significant factor in my case was three months past before my October surgery (L & I). Doctor G. Garcia was assigned my case. We reviewed my case, the MRI images, the X-rays and the options. On surgery day, the “Surgery Team” placed all my fears aside! True professionals! At week 14 post op, my arm has opened to 179 of 180 degrees. Dr. Garcia is now reviewing my other elbow and shoulder. I’ve been to war for this country four times. I’ve placed my life and future in the hands of Dr. Grant Garcia and the OSS staff, and happy I did. I would love to have Dr. Garcia as a Doctor in a combat zone. Thank you to all the Doctors and staff at OSS for your time on my knee, hip, elbows and shoulders. OSS has it’s now X-ray and MRI machines and surgery suite. A true one stop shop! Kudos to all. Thanks!

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

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, but because of the extent of my injuries I needed considerable followup. We called Dr Peterson and he and Dr Garcia found time to fit me in and schedule a proper surgical repair of my shoulder. All in surprisingly short order. But the best part was that Dr Garcia also looked out for all the other injuries and made sure I was getting fantastic followup with my hand surgeries, nagging neck pain, and all the PT and OT that I would need. It was a bummer he couldn’t do anything for my ribs. :) In the midst of this, my son returned from school having dislocated his shoulder multiple times. Dr Garcia took the time to review different possible scenarios for my son and help us consider surgical and non surgical means based on extensive research and data to help him enjoy his favorite sport; skiing. He will eventually need some work done to repair his shoulder, but we are confident that Dr Garcia will give him the best care he could possibly have. We hope 2019 requires fewer doctor visits than 2018, but for those that need help, my wife and I couldn’t more strongly recommend Dr Garcia and the entire team at SOC.

An apple a daydidn’t keep us away from medical needs, however, as a family, we are appreciative of the excellent care and collaborative dedication to helping us mend. 2018 has been a busy year- first a few visits with Dr. Reid when Scott broke his ankle skiing, then knee surgery for Kris with Dr. Peterson…and then clavicle and hand repairs with Dr. Garcia and Dr. Weil. Somewhere in that time frame, our son returned from college feeling stressed about a dislocating shoulder, but Dr. Garcia reassured him that there are several options that will help him to continue doing the activities he loves. All along the way we have been treated with care, compassion, and a healthy dose of humor.

Without a doubt, Dr. Grant Garcia is one of the most highly skilled and most knowledgeable medical professionals practicing in Orthopedics. I highly recommend him and his staff for anyone in need of orthopedic surgery. My partner was recently referred to Dr. Garcia after an initial visit to a local ER for a workplace injury. Upon examining the injury, Dr. Garcia urgently ordered an ultrasound around the injury due to signs of a possible blood-clot. Within 10 minutes, his assistant Robyn informed us that she had already made the appointment and we simply needed to drive straight there as they were expecting us. The results of the ultrasound did reveal a blood-clot; one that was one of the largest that any of the providers had seen. Dr. Garcia’s expertise could have possibly saved his life. His spot-on diagnosis was crucial in determining the most effective treatment plan while reducing future risks and complications that could have been deadly. After that, his assistant Robyn has kept in contact to schedule follow-up visits. In addition, she has gone above and beyond expectations by taking the time to ensure that all medical forms are accurately completed and forwarded onto the proper agencies to ensure timely response and insurance claim payments. The process would have been much more difficult and time consuming without her much appreciated assistance. The exceptional level of service provided by Dr. Garcia and his staff is a direct reflection of their commitment to provide the highest quality medical care to each of their patients. Anyone who has the pleasure of being one of his patients can rest-assured that their life is in the best hands under his care.

Very knowledgeable, helpful, positive, and had great explanations.

I saw Dr. Garcia for a knee issue that seemed to be a torn meniscus. A cortisone shot was tried first which brought relief from the pain. After a few weeks it was clear there was still a problem that the cortisone and rest wasn’t resolving. I had an MRI which confirmed the tear and scheduled surgery. All went beautifully. Dr. Garcia did a great job explaining the procedure to myself and my spouse and letting us know what to expect in the following days/weeks. After 7 weeks of recovery and PT I am able to work very gradually toward jogging again.

I was seeing a Physical Therapist for some pain in my hip. After a couple of sessions he referred me to Dr. Garcia to rule out a stress fracture. Incredibly, Dr. Garcia was able to see me that same day and get me in for an MRI. When the results came back that afternoon, he took the time to call me as he was heading out of town. The quick diagnosis and care allowed me to start my recovery journey immediately. And, while spending the next six weeks on crutches was less than ideal, Dr. Garcia’s approach ensured maximum recovery time. Today, at my follow-up appointment Dr. Garcia patiently and thoughtfully answered my list of questions about preventing future running injuries and a contingency plan should the pain return.
I am very grateful for the connection that my Physical Therapist made and the ease of scheduling and getting in the same day. I joked that I hope to never see him again (crutches and hip injuries are the worst!) but I know that when I need orthopedic physician again, I will be in good hands.

I believe Dr. Garcia is the most exceptional surgeon I have ever met. As a registered nurse of 14 years, and a receiver of multiple orthopedic surgeries, I cannot say enough good things about this surgeon. He immediately advocated for two MRI's the same day he saw me, he tailored the plan of care to my unique situation as an athlete from out-of-state, and I was out of my elbow surgery within one week of meeting Dr. Garcia for the first time. He also connected me with an excellent Physical Therapist, who immediately improved my non-operative knee injury. Beyond this, he gave me statistical information on the success of the newer, less-extensive surgery that he performed on my elbow. He was respectful, knowledgeable, and efficient. At just a week and a half out of surgery, I am already thrilled with the results and my progress. It is outstandingly abnormal for a surgeon to defy all the average expectations in healthcare to advocate for a person he has never met. Thank you Dr. Grant Garcia!

12 weeks ago I had a posterolateral corner reconstruction along with an ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair. I can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. Garcia has been throughout the process. With my surgery in particular, it would have been easy to miss all the repairs that I needed. He not only did a great job with a complicated surgery, he made sure to explain everything thoroughly. He also made the smallest incisions possible and did a subcuticular suture (under the skin), which I'm extremely grateful for. The recovery and support that I've had is unparalleled. I hope to never have to have surgery again, but if I do, I would definitely go back to Dr. Garcia.
~ Carmin C
Dr. Garcia is a wizard. He reconstructed my ACL and completely repaired my MCL and double meniscus tear in three hours flat. I will say that office visits usually run late, but for results this good, it's well worth the wait.
