Herbert R. Clark, MD

Arthroscopic Surgery | Sports Medicine & Trauma Care | Foot & Ankle Surgery

Dear Community,

It has been a great pleasure serving our community for the past 36 years as an orthopedic surgeon in North King County. I have had the privilege of treating many great people and developing friendships with many of my patients & colleagues. However, now it is time to retire and pass my patients along to the talented partners that make up Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle.

For those of you that are my established patients or my partners established patients, know that you are in excellent hands. OSS focuses on most areas of the body, including: foot & ankle, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee, hip, and sports medicine.

If you have any questions about how you can see me through the end of December 2022 or one of my partners, please call 206-633-8100 or visit https://orthopedicspecialistsofseattle.com/request-an-appointment/.
