Dr. Lewis began practicing orthopedic surgery in 2000 after earning his medical degree from the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. His internship and residency at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York prepared him for two successive fellowships – one in hand and elbow surgery and another in shoulder surgery, arthroscopy, and sports medicine.
Dr. Lewis treats both simple and complex hand, elbow and shoulder disorders, which often involve sports-related issues. He has expertise in wrist arthroscopy and minimally invasive hand surgery. Common hand and elbow problems Dr. Lewis can treat are carpal tunnel syndrome and peripheral nerve disorders/injuries, fractures and ligament injuries, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, tendonitis and tendon ruptures, thumb basal joint and hand osteoarthritis, tumors/masses/ganglions, tennis and golfer’s elbow (lateral and medial epicondylitis).
Shoulder conditions and injuries that Dr Lewis treats include both simple and complex shoulder arthroscopy, labral and SLAP repair, and rotator cuff repair including revision surgery.
Dr. Lewis thrives on overcoming the challenges faced in orthopedic medicine. His attention to detail rivals only his dedication to helping patients return to their favorite sports and activities. Meticulous skill, combined with a polite and professional bedside manner, ensures his patients receive the best orthopedic treatment available.
