About Robert L. Weinsheimer

Dr. Rob Weinsheimer has called Seattle home since 2008 when he joined Swedish. With a focus on minimally invasive and neonatal surgery, Dr. Weinsheimer is committed to working with patients and families through a child's surgical experience to minimize stress and empower families to make great choices for their child. Dr. Weinsheimer graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and completed a residency at the University of New Mexico. He then completed his pediatric surgery fellowship at the IWK Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia before moving with his family to Seattle to join Swedish Pediatric Specialty Care. Dr. Weinsheimer’s clinical interests include neonatal surgery (surgical care of newborns including premature babies), minimally invasive surgery, care of chest wall anomalies (including pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum), prenatal consultation for fetal anomalies (birth defects), and hernias. As the Director of Swedish Pediatric Surgical Services and an active member of Swedish's pediatric quality improvement team, Dr. Weinsheimer works hard to improve care delivery to children throughout the system. He was most recently designated a 2022 Top Doc for Pediatric General Surgery and has repeatedly been named as a top Doc in Seattle Magazine and Seattle Met magazine. .

Dr. Weinsheimer 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. Weinsheimer and his partners prioritize access to provide rapid care for children with surgical needs.

Having been born and raised north of Chicago, I am delighted to call the Pacific Northwest home. I enjoy participating in the area?s abundant outdoor activities and spending time with my wife and two daughters.
