Accepting New Patients


Professional Statement

Dr. Cooper grew up in the Midwest, in Omaha, Nebraska. As the son of a dedicated physician, Dr. Cooper observed the profoundly positive impact that a doctor could have on his patients and their families. Additionally, while in high school, he had the unique opportunity to scrub in on surgical cases with some neurosurgeons and general surgeons in Omaha. During these cases, he realized his love for anatomy and the operating room. Thus, from a fairly young age, he decided that he would embark on a career in medicine. Dr. Cooper returned back to his home town of Omaha to attend medical school. While at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, he developed a love for surgery, and decided to pursue a residency in general surgery. (He also developed a love for another medical student named Emily, whom he married during medical school!) Dr. Cooper then completed his residency in general surgery at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle. During his residency, he was lucky enough to have the chance to spend a lot of time with plastic surgeons at both Virginia Mason and the University of Washington. Having never been exposed to plastic surgery in medical school, he realized during his intern year as a general surgery resident how amazing the field of plastic surgery was, and decided that after completing his general surgery residency, he would go on to pursue a fellowship in plastic surgery. After completing his general surgery residency, and becoming board certified in general surgery, he attended the highly esteemed and rigorous Indiana University School of Medicine’s plastic and reconstructive surgery residency program. While there he was exposed to a multitude of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery cases, being taught by some of the nation’s leaders in the academic field. After completing his plastic surgery training, Dr. Cooper was recruited back to the Pacific Northwest where he has built a plastic surgery practice centered upon one goal: providing the best care possible to each individual patient. His surgical practice is hinged upon compassionate, patient-centered care.
