"Whether I am treating a child or adolescent with a broken bone or a bone tumor, my goal is to get kids back to "just being a kid" and teens back to "just being a teen." Pediatric orthopaedics is different from adult orthopaedics and musculoskeletal issues affect young patients in a different way. I want patients and families to feel like we are treating a functioning child or teen, not just something we see on an x-ray or scan."

Dr. Antoinette Lindberg is a Seattle-area native who attended the University of Washington before attending medical school at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York. She completed her orthopaedics residency at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles prior to returning to Seattle to complete a dual-fellowship at the University of Washington/Seattle Childrens Hospital in Pediatric Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Oncology. She subsequently joined the Seattle Childrens Orthopaedics department as faculty and specializes in treating bone & soft-tissue tumors, pediatric fractures, as well as general pediatric orthopaedic issues. Her research interests include treatment of benign and malignant musculoskeletal tumors in children, pediatric fracture management, specialty-care access, and outcome measures. During her "non-doctor" time, she enjoys being mom to her three young children.

    Dr. Lindberg was amazing with my daughter. My 17 year old was diagnosed with 2 tumors in her knee. She was terrified by the word "tumor" Dr. Lindberg was able to speak to her on her level and help her understand what was going on. Surgery was a success. I highly recommend Dr. Lindberg not only for her abilities as a surgeon but for her compassion.
