Meet the Team

Dr. Jim Hsu and Dr. Daniel Schwartz are board-certified orthopedic surgeons with special expertise in shoulder surgery.


Our surgeons see patients at our Ballard, Downtown, Madison Center and Northgate Plaza clinics. If your orthopedic surgeon recommends surgery, this could be scheduled at First Hill Surgery Center, an ambulatory or outpatient surgery center. Procedures such as shoulder separation, shoulder replacement, rotator cuff repair, 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.
