Meet the Team

Dr. Christopher P. Cannon, Dr. David Ibrahim and Dr. Jim C. Hsu, are specially trained orthopedic surgeons with expertise and experience in treating conditions of the knee.


Our orthopedic knee surgeons see patients at our Madison Center, Northgate Plaza and Ballard clinics. If your surgeon recommends knee surgery, this could be scheduled at First Hill Surgery Center, an ambulatory or outpatient surgery center. Procedures such as knee arthroscopy, meniscus repair and total knee arthroplasty can be performed here. Patients are discharged to recover in their own home with a caregiver just a few hours after surgery. Patients avoid an overnight hospital stay, which can reduce the risk of complications, including infection. First Hill Surgery Center also has overall lower facility fees which means lower out-of-pocket cost compared with a typical hospital stay. Learn more about First Hill Surgery Center.
