About Richy T. Lee

Dr. Lee most recently received the 2022 Pediatric Surgery Top Doc designation. Dr. Richy Lee enjoys working with children and their families. He is a Pediatric General Surgeon with clinical interests including: neonatal surgery, minimally invasive surgery, care of chest wall anomalies (pectus excavatum/carinatum), hernias, and reconstruction of congenital malformation. Dr. Lee believes that childhood memories are not suppose to be filled with illness and time spent in the hospital. Being a father himself, Dr. Lee strives to make sure he puts a smile back on the faces of sick children and their families. Dr. Lee enjoys outdoor activities and traveling with his wife and daughter.

Dr. Lee is part of a terrific group at Swedish Pediatric Specialty Care that collaborates to provide team care for children confronted with complex diagnoses including The Chest Anomalies Team at Swedish (lung, esophagus, diaphragm and other congenital malformations of the chest), The Swedish Center for Intestinal Anomalies (including but not limited to anorectal malformations, Hirschsprung’s disease, intestinal malrotation, intestinal atresia and enteric duplications), and the Swedish Chest Wall Improvement Team (dedicated to helping children with pectus excavatum, pectus carinatum, slipped rib syndrome and other chest wall malformations). Dr. Lee and his partners prioritize access to provide rapid care for children with surgical needs.
