About Christopher N. Hein

Dr. Hein is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with added qualifications in hand surgery specializing in surgery of the hand and upper extremity. He endorses a collaborative approach to treating a broad spectrum of upper extremity conditions including arthritis, nerve injury, nerve compression, trauma, stiffness, and overuse injuries. Dr. Hein thoroughly enjoys listening to his patients in order to work with them to craft a tailored plan of treatment that encourages a successful outcome. Dr. Hein has also been selected by both Seattle Magazine and Seattle Met Magazine as a Top Doctor. “My desire to learn more about medicine and the human body was sparked by an experience during a dissection in a college biology lab. We were separating pacemaker cells from cardiac muscle, and I remember being awestruck because the pacemaker cells kept beating even though they were no longer connected to the heart. This was elegant and fascinating to me, and set me on a path that led to multiple volunteer opportunities which solidified my course for a career in medicine.”
