Dr. Cooper grew up in the Midwest, in Omaha, Nebraska. As the son of a dedicated physician, Dr. Cooper observed the profoundly positive impact that a doctor could have on his patients and their families. Additionally, while in high school, he had the unique opportunity to scrub in on surgical cases with some neurosurgeons and general surgeons in Omaha. During these cases, he realized his love for anatomy and the operating room. Thus, from a fairly young age, he decided that he would embark on a career in medicine. After completing his plastic surgery training, Dr. Cooper was recruited back to the Pacific Northwest where he has built a plastic surgery practice centered upon one goal: providing the best care possible to each individual patient. His surgical practice is hinged upon compassionate, patient-centered care.
