Orthopedics

On staff since June 2011

Children's Title: Chief, Orthopedic Outreach

Academic Title: Clinical Associate Professor

"I was attracted to pediatric orthopedics because I enjoy working with children and their families. I was initially exposed to the specialty in 1972, when I worked for Dr. Lynn Staheli as an editorial assistant at Childrens Orthopedic Hospital, now known as Seattle Childrens. The range of pediatric orthopedic diagnoses extends from simple buckle fractures to complex congenital and developmental conditions offering a wide spectrum of challenges and rewards. "

I am a fourth-generation Seattleite and was raised here and attended medical school at the University of Washington. I completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at University of California San Diego in 1984 and then spent a year in Dallas at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital as a pediatric orthopedic fellow.

From 1985 to 1999, I worked in the orthopedic surgery department at Group Health Cooperative. Subsequent to that, I worked part-time in Tacoma for two years. I have been a 0.5 FTE of the Swedish Pediatric Specialty Division since 2002. My husband and I live in Seattle, and we enjoy boating, tennis, and gardening.

    Our 6 year old daughter was in the hands of the best orthopedic surgeon I could ask for, when Dr. Carol Mowery repaired her complex elbow fracture from a common childhood fall from monkey bars. Mowery's orthopedic expertise and skills, along with her kind manner and understanding of Casey's developmental needs, made an painful accident a positive life experience for our little girl. As a nurse practitioner, I know Dr. Mowery is a superior pediatric orthopedic doctor and surgeon.
