Steven S. Ratcliffe, MD

Orthopaedic Surgery, Hip and Knee Reconstruction Dr. Ratcliffe is a Board-certified Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialty focus in hip and knee reconstruction, as well as treating patients with shoulder and knee injuries. He grew up in rural Indiana and did his undergraduate work at Duke University before returning to his home state to earn his medical degree from Indiana University. He completed his orthopaedic training through the University of Washington and then did fellowship training locally at Harborview and in London, England in joint replacement. After returning from England in 1983, he and Dr. Thayer started this practice with “an education, a bank loan, and a goal to help do anything we could to help patients”. He is proud of the practice and his partners who offer in-depth expertise in all the fields of orthopaedics. For Dr. Ratcliffe, it’s a privilege to treat patients and his approach reflects that. Dr. Ratcliffe enjoys spending time with his family, traveling with his wife, scuba diving, and flying aerobatics. Dr. Ratcliffe has received nominations as one of “Seattle’s Top Doctors” from 2011 through 2015!

Dr. Ratcliffe is an amazing orthopaedic surgeon! He completed a total right knee replacement. He is very knowledgeable about osteo issues and the long term and short term impacts on any surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone having major joint issues. He is very popular and difficult to get into but be patient the wait is worth it!

Dr. Ratcliffe is so personable, compassionate, not rushed, takes time for clarification and so caring. Couldn't have had a better knee repair (torn meniscus).

Awesome! Thank you Dr. Steven Ratcliffe, and your entire staff for my new, outpatient total hip replacement. Thank you for the perfect surgery, your professionalism, and how comfortable you made me throughout the entire process. I am so grateful.
