About

Bio

Dr. Esterberg’s goal as your doctor is to help you identify what is causing your symptoms, learn about that problem, and then discuss with you the types of treatment that could benefit you. He is focused on you and how your particular issue is affecting your everyday activities. Both you and he will explore the nonsurgical and surgical options available to you. If a surgical option is chosen, then his goal would be to utilize the least invasive techniques that can help you get back to your everyday activities as soon as possible. In his spare time, Dr. Esterberg enjoys the city of Seattle and likes to explore his environment. He likes to do just about any sport that involves the mountains or the water - alpine skiing in particular. Since he was raised in Minnesota, ice hockey is his favorite sport and he continues to play, despite the lack of ice here in Seattle.   Please read Dr. Esterberg's biography .
