Shoulder Specialist in Seattle, WA

Expert Shoulder Care in Kirkland

Dr. Samuel Koo, MD, MPH is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in minimally invasive arthroscopic shoulder surgery for patients throughout Seattle. Your shoulder is needed in just about all performances of the arm. Shoulder pain can limit even the most simple tasks for patients. It can prevent you from being able to scratch your back, wave to a friend or lift your arm in any upward motion. Disregarding these aches and pains will only lead to prolonged problems or new shoulder injuries within the bone structure or soft tissue. 

All pain, even temporary, should not be brushed aside. Dr. Koo is here for patients that want to make sure their shoulder maintains full strength, mobility and comfort. Dr. Samuel Koo has been awarded the “Top Doctor” award for both Seattle Met and Seattle Magazine for multiple years.

My experience in working with Dr. Koo & Claudia has been terrific. They are both very attentive, responsive and thorough. I have already recommended them to a few friends who are in need of shoulder care.
