Dr. Eric K. Lee is a board-eligible orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hip and knee arthritis treatment and joint reconstruction. He pursued a specialized fellowship in advanced hip and knee replacement at the prestigious Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where some of today’s major joint replacement advances were developed. He has training in less invasive techniques, full and partial replacements, robotics and custom implants. He trained in a five-year orthopedic surgery program at the University of Michigan during residency. Prior to that, he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania medical school, where he also completed a PhD in cancer biology and cellular signaling. Dr. Lee utilizes his dual physician-scientist training to approach clinical problem scientifically, while also listening and focusing on the patient’s needs in order to truly practice the art of medicine.
Dr. Lee believes that optimal treatment of orthopedic conditions like hip and knee arthritis is predicated upon effective communication between the physician and patient. As such, he understands for most patients, surgical hip or knee replacement is a last resort, and will only proceed when both the patient and surgeon believe it is in the patient’s best interest. Consistent with the philosophy of the Personalized Orthopedics Physicians, he adopts a conservative approach and delivers care in a manner that is safe, effective, and efficient. Ultimately, the therapeutic alignment that patients achieve with Dr. Lee involves patients understanding their diagnosis and treatment options, enabling them to act in their own best interests.
