Sean D. Toomey, M.D.

Orthopedic Surgery, Joint Replacement

Dr. Sean Toomey is a fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery. He performs over 400 joint replacement procedures each year in addition to many knee arthroscopies. He is actively involved in clinical research, has published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals, and has given national and international lectures on joint replacement topics and advanced orthopedic techniques.

Dr. Toomey focuses his practice on minimally invasive hip and knee replacement surgery. This includes tissue sparing Direct Anterior approach for total hips and robotic-arm assisted techniques for total knee, partial knee, and direct anterior hip replacement surgery.

He performed the first robotic-assisted orthopedic knee replacement in Seattle in 2010 and has performed several hundreds since that time. Robotic-arm assisted surgery is the most precise joint replacement technology available today, and he is one of the most experienced robotic-arm assisted orthopedic surgeons in the greater Seattle and Puget Sound region, having performed over 500 partial knee, total knee and total hip replacements using this advanced technology. Dr. Toomey is committed to using the best techniques available for patients today while actively researching improved surgical options for patients in the future.

Dr. Toomey became interested in orthopedic surgery as he grew up watching his father, Dr. Hugh (Pete) Toomey, also a joint replacement specialist, interact with patients. Dr. Toomey is an avid soccer player, and played collegiately for the University of Notre Dame. His interests include reading, skiing, cycling, travelling and photography.
