General Information


Biography
I am looking forward to working with your Hand, Shoulder and Elbow conditions. I enjoy treating conditions such as arthritis, fractures, sports injuries and nerve disorders. In addition, I have a particular interest in pediatric upper extremity deformity and disorders. Having trained with some of the leaders in the field at Harvards hand and upper extremity fellowship, I am excited to bring a personal approach to my hometown here in Seattle.

Update from essential tremor (ET) forum

January 30, 2014
On Saturday, January 25, essential tremor (ET) patients in the community gathered for a symposium on the diagnosis, medical management and interventions for the treatment of tremor.  Swedish planned the event in collaboration with the International Essential Tremor Foundation.  Over 120 people in our community gathered to learn and share their stories. Dr. Gwinn discussed the MR Focused Ultrasound study, Gamma Knife, and Deep Brain Stimulation as treatment options for essential tremor.  Patients also shared their experiences with DBS.  It was a great event!
