On staff since October 2016

  • Ted Sousa grew up in Missoula, Montana. He went to University of Southern California where he studied history and economics because he liked learning about people and their interactions. However, business seemed too impersonal to Ted, so he decided to pursue medicine. He attended the University of Washington as a Montana WWAMI student, spending his first year in Bozeman, Montana, prior to heading off to Seattle. He followed in his father's footsteps to a residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine. While rotating in residency at Seattle Children's Hospital, he discovered his passion for taking care of children. Upon completion, he went to Children's Hospital Los Angeles for fellowship. There he honed this passion, working with patients with cerebral palsy. To further improve how to properly take care of this complex group of children, he went to Melbourne, Australia to continue training and better learn their world renowned approach and philosophy to the treatment of kids with cerebral palsy. Dr. Sousa has since returned to Seattle Children's where his love of pediatric medicine developed, bringing with him the skills he learned around the world to the Pacific Northwest and the WWAMI region.
