About Brian E. Louie

Dr. Louie most recently received the 2023 Thoracic Surgery Top Doc designation and has received the Seattle Top Doc award for multiple consecutive years. Philosophy of care: Dr. Louie’s practice involves all aspects of general thoracic surgery including the lung, esophagus, stomach and mediastinum. He has particular interests in minimally invasive surgery that involves the use of laparoscopy, robotics and endoscopy for both cancer and non-cancerous diseases. He believes that care is about helping patients and their families understand their illness and guiding them in selecting treatment that is appropriate and individualized for the patient at his or her stage of life.
