Dr. Lewis chose his specialty because he has always been fascinated with science and “really like helping people do the things in life they like to do.”  He feels rewarded seeing patients get better and return to their sports and activities.  It may surprise his patients to learn that Dr. Lewis has performed volunteer orthopedic surgery in St. Lucia and most recently in Bhutan.  In his personal time, Dr. Lewis enjoys trail running, mountain biking, triathlon, camping and coaching little league baseball.

Do not wait to see a specialist and love on pain. I wish I had gone in months sooner, as soon as I started to have the pain in my knee. I am so happy with the advice and help Dr. Lewis provides that I will go back to him in the future and recommend him to others even thinking something might be wrong. Go in, get it checked, and get advice with a plan. Dr. Lewis and his amazing team can help with that.
