Default recommended orthopedic around renton/seattle area

Hurt my knee playing basketball and I think I should get it looked at. Any recommendations for a good orthopedic around renton or seattle? Thanks everyone!

I just got knee surgery for a broken patella (knee cap) last month. My mom is and RN as Swedish Medical Center so she asked around and found out the best orthopedic doctor, his name is Dr. Hormel. His office is at Swedish in Seattle.

hmm, I got my knee done at Swedish, forget who the doc was though. Shoot. I was quite impressed. He said he had to remove enough torn meniscus that if it had flopped in the wrong spot it would have completely locked my knee up.

I walked about a mile the day after surgery, which wasnt the smartest thing for pain control, but it wasn't bad enough to make me want to take the pills. I went to 2 closings the two days after surgery. Horay for speedy recovery and good doctors.

I went to him because my oncologist used him and highly recommended him, then got me an appointment right away.

Stay away from Auburn and the Sports Medicine Center. I had a decent knee surgery there but vary distant doctors, one in particular Doc. Snow. Unfortunatly the replacement of my MCL and ACL didn't last long, about two months then I ripped them in half again. Now I can't run around a corner or make quick moves or I fall over. One day I will get them replaced again.
