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.

Dr.Lewis is compassionate, understanding and caring, with regards to patient's pain and care. He makes sure you are comfortable in your understanding of diagnosis and completely walks you thru even the smallest detail. Including x-rays. Not to mention, awesome surgeon. I'm blessed to have him as my surgeon and doctor.

April 26, 2018
great doctor.knows his business
April 20, 2018
I used to think that he was just too arrogant, but I have decided that he may very well be as good as he thinks he is (and I have told him so). He has mellowed a bit with age, tho....And, I truly believe that his "arrogance" (if that's what I need to call it) makes him a perfectionist and a better doctor and surgeon. He always listens.....
April 19, 2018
Sure

Please Dr's, as you operate on any patient In the OR room please don't talk so much and act like it's no big deal because you've done this hundreds of times, family's emotions are connected to the person you have under anistesia,we pray,worry,cry,get upset stomachs,and much more, we all have a story in this world and generations of family that care about us sick & injured folks !

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.
